It is a different animal. No idea what make of the engine. There's no tags on it anywhere. So far between me and Kurt aumann we counted 4 total. The one pictured is mine

That is one cool rig, never seen or heard of them before either. Looks like a power unit adapted to a standard drawn mower. I wonder if it was an attempt to create a high way right of way mower for high way depts?
