Kinkades at the heart of Missouri man's collection

Below: This Kinkade Suburbanite, owned by collector Derek Watt, Glenmont, Md., was the Kinkade line’s final gasp. Featuring a flywheel magneto and a carburetor similar to those used on Clinton engines, the two-cycle, 1 hp engine was not very durable. It came with several attachments, including reel mower, sickle bar mower and cultivators. Rather than two-cycle oil, it uses 30-weight automotive oil. It is not as tough to find as other Kinkades. “You see more Suburbanites around than the earlier models,” Mark says.
Right: The serial number tag for Mark Bookout’s second generation Kinkade is located on the unit’s handlebars.
