This is the first version of the first model. Note flywheel position, Maytag carburetion and rope starter on top. This mower belongs to my good friend Jerry Nance of Odessa, MO. This is the only mower like this we know of... we would be happy to hear from
We think this is a prototype. Note the sheet steel deck. Goodall made a few mowers with a steel deck in 20 inch cut. However, this mower is only a 14 inch cut. From author's collection.
This is the second version of the first model. Note the change of position of flywheel. This version did not change for the duration of the production that used the Maytag engine. From the author's collection.
