No a push mower but a Rider. I use it to do everything. Just rebuilt it.





I blew a hole in the exhaust somehow and so I burnt the valve and now I have a tractor exhaust on it. It's real nice

Here is what is clearly a TORO, however, I have no idea what model it is. The engine is a 1966 Briggs and Stratton. I picked it out of a junkpile about 12 years ago and my son used it as a make believe farm tractor to follow me around on as a youngster. I have NO IDEA how anyone could have possibly mowed a lawn with this thing. I took the mowing deck off way back when because it would just drive right into any bump on the lawn. Solid front tires are useless as far as actually gripping any terrain to turn. Runs....albeit scarey....sounds like it is going to over rev, possibly due to the fact there is no blade on it. Be great if anyone knew much about it.

That looks identical to the Springfield we had on the farm that I used as a kid. Still have the engine, steering wheel and seat for it. The frame was made into a tow behind cart many years ago which I still use behind my Deere today. Also the front wheels are still in use on my Tru-Test tiller. When the transmission in it died 30 some years ago my grandfather decided to scrap it and I saved all the bolts and pieces that my parents would let me drag home. :D

Here's one photo from the owners manual which I still think I have somewhere:



Your right about the ground clearance. Believe it or not I used that little thing to mow the pasture along the lane and all around the gardens. I can't tell you how many time I hung it up and had to get off and push it to get moving again. :D Another bad thing about it was on a hot day the engine would darn near cook your legs. Also the steering tended to lock on tight turns and only released if I backed up a little bit.

The engine run fine without the blades attached. I've run it since many time just hooked to a piece of steel to support it. Might want to check the governor. As I recall it is an internal governor rather then an air vane.

Toro 26624 from 1990

Here's my Toro 26624 that I inherited from my uncle. It was made in 1990 and has electric start, BBC, and a 4-cycle Suzuki 5 hp engine. Although it looked to be in mint condition, it took a good bit of TLC to get it going again. The fuel lines had dry rotted and the tank had a leak. The Mikuni carburetor was full of varnish. After installing a carb kit and several cleanings plus a run through an ultrasonic cleaner, it runs well. As for the electric start, the battery is bad and won't charge, and the key switch is flaky. Those problems are on the to-do list for now. It starts easily with a gentle tug on the handle.

Here's the mower set up in the standard mulching configuration:

And here is the Toro set up for bagging. The bag holds quite a lot of clippings and is easy to empty and replace:

Toro 26622 (1990)

My Toro 26622 (1990) just back from the shop. Tune-up, oil change, blade sharpening, new speed adjustment cable, new rear wheels. New front wheels on order. Suzuki engine, can count on one hand the number of times it hasn't started on the first pull. Hope it runs forever! By the way, my first post.
