Drummond Willing Worker

I bought this Willing Worker a couple of years ago as part of a large collection. As you can see it is in lovely condition. I'm not quite sure what's going on with the wooden sides of the Grassbox - giant very precise woodworm lol.This is the smallest 10 inch version and was also available in 12, 14 and 16inch sizes. The willing Worker was manufactured by Drummond Brothers from 1923 to the mid 1930's in Guildford, Surrey. The main colour for the Drummond was green but a colour change to silver was introduced in the late 20's as sales had not been successful. This gave the appearance of the mower seeming lighter, easier to use and more modern. There is a really nice example of a Willing Worker at the National Trust property of Polesden Lacey in Surrey.
