If you do not find your machine in the Gilson Registry I hope you will take a few minutes to complete this form and submit it. First name credit is given to the first person to submit a model. I really appreciate you taking the time to tell me about your Gilson! If you can't supply all the information that's OK but please be as complete as possible.

What is your email address:

Your first name, so I can give credit if yours is a new sighting:

What Brand is your machine?
Is it an actual "GILSON" or one of the private brands Gilson built?

Gilson Identification Tag, Photo Credit: Cale What is the model number of your machine?
NOTE: If your machine has an "ST" model designation on it like "ST826" make sure you get the model number from the actual model/serial tag. The "ST" numbers were generally showroom designations and apply to many machines of the same horsepower and width. The model number is usually on a metal tag or sticker on the machine, not the engine. If you stand at the controls your toes will probably be pointing at it. See my FAQ for more information.


What is the width of your machine?

What Horsepower is your machine?
If unsure enter the engine model number.

Is the engine a Briggs & Stratton or Tecumseh?

If the engine is a Briggs and Stratton What is the engine CODE number?
If it is a Tecumseh what is the engine serial number?

Best expressed as an actual date or the years the winter spanned like "76/77"

If it is self propelled model:

How many forward speeds does it have

How many reverse speeds does it have

Is the traction transmission "Friction drive" or "Gear drive"
Friction drives will have the transmission area under the engine closed with a plate on the bottom. Inside there will be a friction wheel that looks like a 5 inch tire. The drive pulley will have a flat platter surface. If it says UNI-TROL it is a friction drive
Gear Drives will be open on the bottom below the engine and if you look up in there you will see some drive chains and a sealed gearbox. There may be a GEAR DRIVE decal

Is your machine single or dual stage?

What state or Canadian province or other country are you in?
