Rainbow of Antique Mowers

Michigan couple’s antique mower collection paints a rainbow.

This mower kit was produced in the late 1940s by Sensation Mower Co., Ralston, Neb. The kit contained a wooden deck, rotary mower, spindle, handle and wheels; the buyer provided his own engine. “I put a first year Kohler K7 (about 2 hp) on it,” Dennis says. “Kohler only made that model in 1949-’50 and then stopped.”
