New member! And a curiosity of push mowers...

Hello! New member from Scotland! 

I have recently purchased my first push mower, a Qualcast Super Panther (not very special I know, as common as grass itself) I have owned many old atco’s , qualcast, and suffolks. 

I have a customer who owns one of the new Webb 12” cylinder push mower and I have noticed that they are nearly identical! Is this just a modern copy of the qualcast? I know webb themselves have a history if similar design push mowers but this seems so similar. 

By chance could it share parts such as the reel? Would be good to know as a possible new parts provider!

Yes, the 'new' 12" Webb is

Yes, the 'new' 12" Webb is undoubtedly based on the Qualcast Panther, but wether the parts are interchangeable is another thing. Calling it a Webb is probably down to Bosch licensing the Qualcast name to Homebase. This is also why you can buy Atco's that are not Atco's and Allett's that are Atco's.

I do not own a new "webb" but

I do not own a new "webb" but own a Handy mower.I have had a super panther in the past.The handy and the new webb are all based on the super panther/panther 30dl .The webb/handy have many plastic parts including rear roller,they are ok 2nd hand because cheap,the metal and paint lets them down ,the grassbox is fabric.So overall not as rugged as qualcast.
