I have just purchased a "barn find" ride on mower, Rover Rancher Model Number 27167/198.

The mower does not have a cutting deck which is OK with me, I'm hoping to use it as a garden tractor when refurbished.


1. What does the "198" in the model number indicate?

2. I can't find a repair manual or parts book for this model number on the OutdoorKing web site (or any other web site), is there another model number that is on the OutdoorKing web site that could be used as an alternative?

3. Would this mower be made in the USA, and "rebadged" as a Rover. If so, can anyone tell me what company in the US probably built he mower?

4. Finally, what year was the mower likely built?

Thank you from Southeast Australia
