From the first time I saw one I wanted one. I mean the all mechanical one not the later hydrostatic drive.

An all mechanical variable speed drive to independently drive each rear wheel forward and reverse. Very clever.

I have owned two, both used. If all those ball bearings are good as well as the friction cone and properly adjusted they are great. They are not built to the standards of the machines built today for commercial use. They are much lighter.
