    Default UNKNOWN Farm/Lawn piece of Machinery anyone help?

    Good Afternoon,

    I live in an old farm house that used to once be a thriving farm. Yesterday I decided to go through one of our old barns and stumbled upon this piece of machinery. I figured out that it is some sort of shear that would be used to cut down brush, maybe high grass something of that nature. The Engine is a Briggs and Stratton 4 cycle: numbers as follows: Model# NPR6 Type# 307055 Serial# 1535097. I Believe it may be a John Deere as for the main handle bars and front forks are yellow and the frame and machine itself is green though I cannot find any significant markers such as the name or Deere symbol. The engine operates 3 pulleys through flywheels which act like a locomotive in the way its driven and thus then converts the motion from vertical motion to horizontal making the shears go back in forth. I am very interested in restoring this piece of equipment but would like opinions of others and if possible a link to somewhere that describes what this is. Thank you very much and input is greatly appreciated.

    Upon closer inspection of the sickle bar, Gary (from Jari USA) has proclaimed that your mower is indeed a Kinco.

    You have quite the collector's item there!

    Should you ever decide to replace any of the knives, ours will work for you.
