I've seen some mowers that were wankers. Does that count? Cool mower. I've love to see the insides. Does it crankcase lube or does it take mixed gas?
Many years ago, I remember my dad's friend had Artic Cat snowmobiles that were Wankel powered.

I bumped in to a guy at an antique power show several years back that had a nice one, and of coarse it was not for sale either.....

A buddy in high school had a Mazda rx3 with a wankel in it. Sounded kinda cool, but it didn't cut grass

I wonder if that mower has the same engine as the Sachs KMS-4

Sachs made different sized rotaries. The larger ones were in snowmobiles from what I have gathered through reading.

I wonder how that thing would like limestone.
We had one of those in the groundshop shop of a university I worked at in the 80's. It supposedly worked great on hills, banks, and slopes. A PITA to transport without wheels though.
