Age and Value of a Sear's Reel Mower

I have a Sear's Craftsman 18 inch reel self propelled mower in really good shape. It has a 3 hp cast iron motor, model 536816900. How can I find the age and value of this mower?

This mower, going by the model number on the frame, was sold at Sears stores from the summer of 1976 through the fall of 1977.

The model and serial number on the engine can be found on the shroud near the cylinder head. I know off the top of my head the model for the engine is 143.661062 (Tecumseh: H30-35312M).

Keith, I wanted to remind you that your machine was made as early as January 1976, and that the first retail sales would have occurred around that July. However, this machine would've been sold no later than 1978 (it was on clearance sale in 1979, when it was replaced by a revised model 536.816901 and then 536.816902).

Possible sales years: 1976, 1977 or 1978
Engine model no.: 143.661062 (Tecumseh H30-35312M)

What would the date code be on the unit frame, where the model number is also? Example: 6255 (9/11/1976)

As to the engine's date code, it would look like this (it's stamped on the shroud, after the model number): 6234B (8/21/1976).

Thank you, Benjamin "Ben" Edge

Any idea what this is picture. We have this and the blades are different than any other I've seen.

I wonder if it is a de-thatcher?
