Eska Company

Lavern Kascel and Bud Essman formed the ESKA Company in 1945. The name of the company was created from the first two letters of Essman and the first two letters of Kasel. The Eska Company began as a shipping firm (or middleman) to distribute farm toys. Eska sold Ertl diecast toy tractors and before long began producing toy farm implements and peddle tractors for children. In 1951, when debt outran the companies assets, Carter Tru-Scale, who had made the tools and designed the products for Eska, took over the Eska toy manufacturing operation, moving it to their stamping operation in Rockford, Illinois. Later in the 1950’s, Eska established other business sidelines including the manufacturing of lawn mowers and exercise bicycles. William A. Wright, Jr. joined the company during this period and helped develop these products,

By the early 1960’s, Wright had developed a small inexpensive fishing motor. The Eska outboard motor was manufactured from 1961 to 1987 in Dubuque, Iowa. Motors were sold under numerous brand names (badges). Many Department Stores, Hardware Stores and some Auto Parts Stores sold these outboards, at one time or another. Some were sold under the Eska name and some under a private brand. The Power Heads were all manufactured by Tecumseh (Tec) Engines. These Power Heads were all Air Cooled, except the 9.9 through 15 horsepower Twin Cylinders. Most all of the Eska outboards had water cooled exhaust columns using “ram tubes” just aft of the propellers (small engines) or rubber impeller pumps (larger engines). Like most air cooled outboard motors lacking running temperature regulation, the smaller Eska motors required frequent adjustment of the fuel mixture jets to run smoothly at trolling speeds.

Many Eska outboards used common ignition and carburetor vendors for that period. Thus, many tune-up parts remained available long after the model’s obsolescence. However, hard core parts for these outboards are getting more difficult to find as time goes on.

In 1970, Wright and his partners sold The Eska Company to Talley ?

In 1980, Eska, by then a subsidiary of Talley Industries, a large multinational conglomerate in Mesa, Arizona, purchased the Clinton outboard motor product line from the Clinton Engines Corp. The purchase was to consolidate area manufacturers to maintain a strong hold on the market which had dropped due to the lagging economy. Unfortunately, with the poor economy and increasing foreign competition, Eska ceased engine production in 1986. Eska engines continued being marketed with the 1986 model numbers until stocks were exhausted in 1987. Eska closed for business in1987 ? Talley may have briefly marketed engines built by Tanaka of Japan.


Frederick Ertl and his Toy Tractors

Until the mid-1950s, Frederick ERTL worked in the die-cast department of the JOHN DEERE DUBUQUE WORKS. He bought a small, used die-casting machine, which he installed in his garage on Asbury Road and made the small die cast parts for model tractor toys (not the riding pedal versions that came later) for ESKA. ESKA sold these to the toy industry as well as to farm implement dealers. In these early years, ESKA manufactured the first die cast pedal tractors.

ESKA planned to provide Ertl farm toys to companies with the ordering company’s original equipment manufacturer’s logo. Under an agreement of the three men, Ertl products were delivered to ESKA which then shipped them. Another agreement was that Ertl made tractors and ESKA manufactured implements, but not tractors.

The agreement continued until 1948 when ESKA began producing steel-stamped farm implements in its factory at 32nd and White. In 1950-51, Carter Tu-Scale took over the ESKA manufacturing operation and moved it from Dubuque to Rockford, Illinois. The acquisition allowed Carter Tru-Scale to expand its farm toy production under the Carter Tru-Scale and ESKA brands. When Ertl discontinued the production of large sand-cast riding, or pedal, tractors, ESKA gained another product. ESKA made several varieties of John Deere pedal tractors and trailers. In 1950 Eska also made cardboard farm buildings.

Bud Essman sold out to Lavern Kascel sometime around 1955. Around 1960, William A. Wright, Jr. (Vice President of Manufacturing) and Luke Sapan of Long Island, NY (Vice President of Sales) each bought 1/3 of Lavern Kascel’s shares and the three became equal partners in The ESKA Company.

At around the same time, ESKA, which had begun manufacturing lawn mowers and chain saws in the mid-1950s, added the Eska Sno-Flyr snowblowers to its line and lost interest in the toy industry. In 1960-61 Ertl obtained Eska’s toy licensing rights for John Deere, International Harvester, Case, Oliver, and Allis Chalmers.

William A. WRIGHT, Jr.

“William A. Wright, Jr. who passed away in 2012, made a big impact on fishing.”

Born in Maryland, Wright moved to Dubuque, Iowa in 1950, following a stint in the Army Air Corps and a few years of college, where he studied engineering. He worked for two years at Dubuque Stamping and Manufacturing, then earned an economics degree at University of Dubuque.

He began work at The Eska Company and, within a few years, became a partner. Among his work were innovations for lawn mowers and snow blowers. With that technical expertise — and an interest in fishing — Wright developed an affordable outboard motor by mounting a small, air-cooled lawn mower engine onto an old Evinrude lower unit.

By the early 1960s, the product had become fine-tuned enough to market. Fishermen were the primary audience for the 3.5 HP and 5 HP models, the latter selling for 99. When 1,000 were sold in the first two weeks, the company knew it had a winner.

Eska outboards eventually became the world’s best-selling motors under 10 HP, thanks in part to Sears Roebuck Co., their largest distributor. Eska also sold engines through several other retailers and under dozens of other brand names, which are listed further down this page.

In the early 1970s, baseball Hall of Famer and Sears spokesman Ted Williams paid a visit to Dubuque to honor Wright and the Eska team with The Sears Award of Excellence in manufacturing.

General Комментарии и мнения владельцев About the Website

FROM Donald: This is an awesome website. I found the information that I needed right away from one of the over 20,000 free articles that you provide as a public service. I’m surprised that so much if this site is free. But I still signed up so I could access the thousands of expanded pages, interesting articles, and dozens of valuable programs! The member’s library of books, magazines and videos that I can view online is really terrific! I understand that you and your staff are all unpaid volunteers. Please keep up the good work. And I commend you for your plans to add another 10,000 free informative articles over the next year. I’m thrilled to support you in this endeavor with my small membership donation. Thanks again for all your hard work.

FROM Huey: I agree with my Uncle, I too have found the articles to be very enlightening. They say that it will take about 100,000 articles to cover the full scope that they have envisioned for the website. They have over 20,000 articles so far and that’s doing pretty well, but it could take several years to get the rest. I also noticed that many of the Main Topic Pages and some of the article pages are still in the rough draft stage. I guess that they will fill in as they can get volunteers to work on them. But what I can’t figure out is why anyone would spend the time writing informative in depth articles just to give away free to this website for publication? What’s in it for them?

FROM Dewey: Well Huey, to me It looks like most of the articles on this website are written by very informed people, like boating instructors, boat designers, boat builders, riggers, electricians, fitters, marine repair technicians and marine surveyors. Writing such articles helps establish them as knowledgeable professionals. After all, this website was originally created by a school for marine technicians and marine surveyors. The website is growing in content every day. They even had to move to a bigger, more powerful server because the website’s traffic has been growing exponentially.

FROM Louie: I agree with everyone above. This site is quickly becoming the ultimate reference resource about every aspect of boats and ships for everyone from the beginning recreational boater to the seasoned professional mariner. I use the topic pages on the right sidebar to browse around the website. It’s like a Junior Woodchucks’ Guidebook for Boaters. Their Members’ Library of over 300 popular and obscure books and over 200 magazine back issues that can be viewed online is fabulous. The Academy’s magazine is especially informative. On top of that, there is the Ask-An-Expert program for members where you can get an expert’s answer to any of your boat questions. And a whole years membership is only 25. What a deal! I really love being part of this Everything About Boats community and help provide thousands of helpful articles free to the public. I think that I’ll sit down right now and write an article about my experiences boating with my uncle.

FROM Scrooge: You rave about this website like it was the best thing since sliced bread. Well, I think it stinks. Sure, it has a lot of good information for boaters, and they’re adding more every day, but it will probably never be finished. Furthermore, I don’t even own a boat. And I wouldn’t have a boat even if someone gave me one. Boats are a waste of money and time and energy and money! They’re just a hole in the water you pour money into. If you gave me a boat, I’d sell it quicker then you could say Baggywrinkle. Then I’d lock up the cash with all my other money so I could keep my eye on it and count it every day. Bah humbug.

FROM Daisy: I’m just so glad that Donald got the boat so we and the boys could enjoy boating — together. And of course all of the girls, April, May, and June, love to be on the water too, especially when that is where the boys are. Oh poor Scrooge, boating is more fun then you could possibly imagine.

FROM Scrooge: After seeing how much fun you all have on the water together, I regret that I didn’t have that much fun when I was young. I’ve had a change of heart, and I’m giving each of you a Lifetime Academy Membership.

FROM Roger: “I have a model 1973-A that I’m trying to find a carburetor for. I did not see that model on your list. Can you help me?

FROM Editor: “Model 1973A is now listed under ‘Models by Year’ and ‘Model Guides’. See the Parts Catalogs in the ‘Product Documentation‘ section. Carburetor Kits are still showing as available, but complete carburetors are becoming a lot harder to find.

FROM Spencer: “Hello eska family, I have a working Ted Williams 5.5 and broke the gas bulb mount screw while trying to stop leaky bulb. Argh. So I need a new carb. Serial numbers are all nearly rubbed off the motor. The carb is stamped with ? L2 390. Searches come up with tecumseh stuff. Will a lawn mower carb work if the holes line up?

FROM Michelle: “My dad has tons of eska parts and a couple of non working motors. Any idea of how to sell the parts or what to do with them. Any info will help. Thank you Michelle.

Crazy Things People Have Made With Mower Engines

You might not think it, but lawnmowers have decently powerful engines, and you can actually make some pretty cool stuff with them!

People have been known to make some crazy things with objects we use every day. One of those objects is the engine from your lawnmower due to its versatility and easy installation. These products that have been created are extraordinary and others have us wondering why we didn’t think of trying that first.

We have compiled a list of the craziest things people have managed to create with these simple engines. They will give you new ideas all while blowing your mind at the crafter’s superior ingenuity. Keep reading to learn about ten crazy things people have made with mower engines!

10. Go Kart

The most famous thing people create out of old lawnmower engines is a go-kart. This is because it is something the whole family can enjoy, and you might even be able to make it out of the old frame of your lawnmower.

The hardest part of this build is creating the frame, as generally, this is the part of the project that fails the most. It has to be sturdy enough to support your weight and the jostling it experiences on the roadway. A poor welding job will cause this to collapse, but there are some pretty great success stories.

Gas-Powered Bicycle

You might be wondering why anyone would attach an engine to a bicycle, but the better question is why wouldn’t you. This basically turns your bike into a motorcycle at best and assisted pedaling at its worst.

Whichever path you choose will supply you with a bike that doesn’t take as much effort to use. A lot of people who try this are those that ride their bikes to work or school and prefer something with a little more power to help them over that hump in the middle of their ride.


Many people have utilized mower engines to make gas-powered blenders. This one might confuse you because blenders can be bought at the store for a cheap price, but it is not as cool as saying you made a blender out of your lawnmower.

Many people use weed wacker engines instead (like the one pictured above), but using a mower engine is not unheard of for this project. It might take a bit more thinking and creativity, but this redneck project is entirely manageable.

Boat Motor

Several people have created boat motors out of their mower engines. These are usually attached to a discarded outboard, or they find some way to attach a propeller to the engine. It is a perfect and inexpensive way to operate a small boat, and can even be used as an alternative for trolling.

It might seem a bit crazy and foolhardy to attempt this feat, but for many people, it has paid off in the long run. You may not travel at fast speeds, but you don’t really need to if your goal is a leisurely ride out to your favorite fishing spot.

Ball Launcher

This is another example of a crazy project someone has decided to take upon themselves to make. It is often useful for athletes in sports like baseball, tennis, and football to have balls flung at them at high speeds. It not only quickens their reaction time but trains them to perfect their technique under pressure.

You can use a mower engine to create one of these monstrosities, but it might be a bit too powerful for certain things. It might not be the best option for your tiny dog, but a person could take the hit and walk away with only a bruise or two.


This is by far one of the coolest inventions on this list because everyone in their right mind should want to build a hovercraft. You could fly down the street, over to your friend Jerry’s house, or even to the grocery store. It is the perfect thing to impress your friends with and everyone will want a go on your amazing hovercraft.

They probably won’t believe you either when you tell them you made it from your old mower engine. It might seem like a crazy idea, but then again, most good ideas start that way.


It might not have been the brightest idea, but someone made a submarine using a lawnmower engine. Not many of us could fathom being trapped beneath the water in a metal box with nothing more than a motor engine keeping us afloat, but they accomplished the impossible.

This is one build that should be left to the professionals, but a remote-controlled version might not be that bad. It is up to you to decide if you value your safety, but we think most people will probably decide to stay far away from this project.


There was one man who made a mulcher using his old mower engine, a plastic barrel, plywood, lawnmower blades, and a metal chute. This is something that everyone might be able to accomplish and it is actually quite genius when you think about it. It makes bagging leaves every year that much simpler as it shreds them into a waiting bag.

This project also saves you a ton of money because most of the materials are already available to you, and all you have to do is put together. It probably seems a bit crazy, but this is one cool design that deserves an award.

Mini Bulldozer

There is a kit available for purchase online called the MINI-DOZER MD196K which is a kit offered by Struck. They offer a package where you can add in your own engine to save a few dollars, and it just so happens that a mower engine will power it.

This makes it easier for you to dig out that patch of your backyard for your inground pool, or you could just drive it around the neighborhood for fun. It will be like living your childhood dream as you throw a bunch of dirt around and rip up your lawn in a fun-filled frenzy.

Robotic Mower

This project transforms your lawnmower into a robotic one that doesn’t require you to be outside. There is an option for you to make it self-sustaining so it cuts the grass of its own accord.

It is also possible to create a mower that is remote-controlled so you can cut the grass from the comfort of your recliner in front of your bay window. This takes the stress out of mowing and it is easy enough to operate so you can pass it off to someone else in the household.
