Hello, new member from Sweden here!
I recently bought 2 Suffolk Super Punch 17" for 1500 SEK (about 131£). I hope to make atleast one of them work and somewhat restored to its former glory.
I like English mowers, especially cylinders. We use newer 5 unit mowers at work on football pitches (Ransomes, Hayter) but I always wanted a classic mower at home.
A couple of questions about the Suffolk mowers;
1. Can I get some assistance in determing the year of manufacturing and version? I can post images of both machines and what I know.
2. Looked around for parts, some generic stuff on Ebay like gaskets and carburators. I think I will make my own gaskets since its not so complicated, I reckon it will be harder to replace other parts made solely for these mowers. Any other store that ship to sweden? Might need new bottomblade for example.
3. About colors. I have read the section about colors on the site but still think its hard to know which Green to get. I think these are original paint(?), The cylinder is supposed to be green ? If someone have a RAL code on a good looking green and orange id be happy to know. Looked at several different, i think Deutz-fahr green is pretty ok? Maybe too yellow.
* Super Punch No1
I think the metalplate says model 1A. Got wooden rollers and split drive.
Super Punch No2
Decal says model No 2A.
Have a great evening!
