I bought this oldie, to restore. It actually runs. I drove it around the yard over the summer. I don't have the equipment to do the job right. Really should be sandblasted... [img]http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/uploaded/arjr111/I-11.jpg[/img]

Maynard, That kind of reminds me of an older version of a Swisher, except that one looks like it's rear wheel drive. I had an old Swisher 5HP about 15 years ago in Utah. It was front wheel drive, built like a tank and an absolute blast to drive. Very primitive though, the one I had didn't have ANY WAY of adjusting cutting height. Their 3-wheelers are still made, though they're better known for their trailing mowers. The 3-wheelers are great for flat lots, but I wouldn't try to use them on a slope at all...

I won't say they are ugly, but they are shy about showing their beauty. They just are not as classy looking as my AC 710, simp 700, or my MW gardenmark. John H (you can tell I don't kmnow much about beauty cause I got a 1948 Studebaker Truck)

My eleven year old would love that little swisher mower. I had no idea anyone still made the three wheelers. Probably, made for the suburbs. Wonder if they actually sell many and what they go for..

The Swishers are about $1500, which isn't that bad when you consider what a new Murray or MTD goes for. They're heavy, tough suckers -- the deck is made out of 1/8" plate steel. With the front wheel drive, the steering wheel turns completely round and round, so they're actually more maneuverable than a ZTR. They're rear-discharge, so you can trim right up next to a tree on either side. Once you get the hang of it, you can easily mow around a 6" tree with no problems, for example... I had about a dozen fruit trees in the lawn, and my son acted like they were pylons on a test track or something.... He had a ball with it!

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
