Can anyone help me with the proper paint scheme on a $5 casterwheel mower? What's green, what's yellow and was the grass board painted? Thanks Al

The #5 mower was made by the thousands and for quite a few years, I think it is safe to say that the paint scheme was probably changed a time or two over the years. I had to make a grass board for mine and thought the varnished oak was prettier than just green since it was going to be used and would wear off anyway. Every answer so far could be right. Bob

Bob, I would agree. After reading one of the posts below I got to thinking. Whatever paint color or clear varnish color they were out of the box, it was usually less than a year before we were making a new one - you really need to raise that sickle bar before you back up, eh?

I was fortunate to find a #5 mower in original condition. The machine is painted all green with the caster wheel being painted yellow. The grass board is green with the leaping deer logo centered on the board. The dowel rod extending from the grass board is also green. Even the pitman (wood) has the original green paint. There is not even a knick in the cutting blade. This was a lucky find.

Caster wheel was yellow on ours, and if I remember right the swath board was varnished. I have seen varnished with a black logo, but can't remeber if that was original.

According to a sales brochure I have, the mower was green all over. All the pictures show the dividing board to be red. Interestingly enough, the trademark on the outside of the dividing board is the one used from 1937 to the late '40s (the deer leaping over the log).

Stan thanks for the fast follow-up. That sounds right by the evidence on the mower. The only traces of yellow are on the caster. If what I am calling the grass board is the dividing board there is no evidence of paint but a decal of just the 4 legged deer. If your brochures show it as red then red it will be. Thanks Al

Deere didn't paint everything as the brochures show. It is green as I have an original just like another post.
