Wonder-Boy 404

. . .  designed for those who think thrifty

THIS 4 hp unit wins budget-minded friends at every turn of the price sheet. It's the perfect answer for folks who want to cut costs as well as their lawn . . . yet want all the advantages a quality riding mower offers.

Owners say they wonder how they got along without the Wonder-Boy before they enjoyed the unexcelled service and practicality of this small power package. Though it's attractive, this handy helper has no purely decorative
parts that aren't functional.  Every item on this economical unit has a purpose. . .  and each of them is built to last.

Its 24" mower levels a lot of lawn in little time, on uneven terrain without scalping a single blade. It mows over 1/2 acre an hour, and is ready to help you with other jobs as well. It mounts any of its attachments in less than a minute, letting you haul materials with its dump cart or smooth a 3' swath with its 36" roller.

Its compact design makes it maneuverable enough to trim around a tree in one pass . . . and lets you store it easily between two cars in your garage.  Its responsive Easy-Spin starter system assures you quick starts, too. There's no "rope wrestling", no losing time and temper with a balky engine . . . a quick spin and the WonderBoy's ready to work.   Mows within 5/8" of edge of deck . . . works cooler, with engine fumes behind you . . . and gives a comfortable ride with its deep padded seat and soft pneumatic tires.  With a Wonder-Boy 404,
you rule your yard . . . your yard doesn't rule you.  

Wonder-Boy cuts your grass to a trophy-winning look, mulches leaves to enrich your grass, rolls your lawn to carpet smoothness, and makes fans of your family by hauling loads they would otherwise carry. All this while you ride in regal comfort!
