Really old Toro SS late 50's ??

Haven't seen one of these. Anyone have an idea of it's age ? I'm thinking it's the oldest Toro I've seen. The Lawn-Boy is pretty cool too.

I don't think it's a Wheel Horse emblem but it's close. All the ones I researched have a wheel under the horse. But it's awful close, good eye. I wonder if that Lawn-boy used a different engine manufacturer back then ??

Yeah, its definately not Wheel Horse (Wheel Horse and Lawn Boy never had any relationship) but I have also never seen that emblem in a Lawn Boy before..

I have one of those Outboard Marine Lawn Boy mowers from 1967 (orignally yellow); 2 cycle on a magnesium platform with a downward exhaust that uses the grass to muffle the noise. Needs rings right now because it lacks compression when cold. With that off-set wheel, it's remarkably maneuverable and very light . . . . ideal for small lawns.

At 1 time Lawn boy was not owned or part of TORO. They bought them up some time in the 90's. I think???????

Because Outboard Marine owned Johnson and Evinrude Outboard Marine Engines, I think they've always used their own facilities to manufacture Lawn Boy's 2 Cycle engines . . . . right there in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Waukegan, Illinois. That's probably not true for the later 4 Cycles used on the Lawn Tractors.
