I've joined this forum as I'm about to move into my first property which has a small lawn to the rear which I will need to maintain. Helping my dad clear out a garage at the weekend I found an old push mower in there that used to be his. It would be ideal for the small lawn I'm about to take on.
However the mower has clearly seen better days so I was thinking of restoring it. I then tried to google the age but knowing nothing about it I can only go off the style etc. and it looks like some of the examples on this website.
I therefore wondered if anyone recognised the mower? or if anyone could at least give me a rough guess of the brand of mower or it's rough age?
I plan to restore the mower. Giving everything a rub down and a fresh lick of paint. Getting the blades sharpened and then painted before putting it all back together. I've never taken anything like this on, so will be just learning what I can od paints etc. I made a start rubbing handles down this weekend with a wire brush but I think I need some sandpaper or wire wool to do a real job before applying primer and paints.
