I couldn't find anything about it on the internet
Thank you Louis Nichols
Please upload the image in the normal way for this site . Don't want to have to download an un trusted application to view it!
The photos open ok on the Ipad but are not terribly clear.
The mower looks like a Husqvarna possibly a Dux. This may be confirmed by viewing the wheel castings also if it is the one I am thinking of the handle is a single steel tube that divides at the top to form a Y with a plate bearing a Husqvarna logo. The normal colour scheme for this make is red and white so this one may have been repainted at some point, assuming that this is indeed what I think it is.
Thanks for the clearer images. Certainly something new to me. Looks well engineered for a small mower but of a slightly eccentric design. Other than the width, that cutting cylinder looks as it it would be at home on something a fair bit bigger.
As for its value it is back to what someone is prepared to pay on the day but it might make a nice and and usual addition to a collection of push mowers.
The mower shown in my photos is clearly marked as a Dux Minor and has a ten inch cut, I believe it was also available as a Dux Major with a choice of twelve or fourteen inch cuts.
