Which manufacturer / Which model ?On Ride Mower Year 1976


my name is Markus and I'm from Germany, my english is not perfect, so vorgive me mistakes. I have get given a old on ride lawn mower. There is no type label or anything else. It has got a Briggs and Stratton 11 HP engine 1 cylinder. I am restoring the mower and I want to know the manufacturer and the model. The mower was red painted original, someone painted it green. The engine is now running after small work like cleaning the carburetor etc. It has a transaxle with 3 gears forward and one backward gear. Here are some pictures, i can upload better pictures later. Thank you for your help.

Hello, welcome to the forum. I have asked around a few colleagues & so far no precise ID although they have suggested a Mountfield or MTD? Will let you know if I hear any more.

Thank you so much for you reply. I have searched a lot in google for MTD and Mountfield for old models but nothing found that looks like my model. Maybe you can find out something. I am happy if someone knows more about my mower.

I think it is a Murray like this one:

Murray original colour scheme was white with orange bonnets, but there were also rebadged Murrays which could have been other colours. Unfortunately I cannot find any model information connected with the above picture.

That looks like it Ian, reason why my UK mini tractor colleagues couldn't ID it, made in Ohio, have asked if any of the US experts can tell us more.
