Today, I just acquired 2 nice old hand mowers to restore when I get the chance. a Folbate J2 10" and a greens monitor 12" so they're going to benefit from my skilled love and care.
besides this, the chap that turned up with them, said... "Would this be of use"
"This" being the grass box of the old 12" qualcast blue concorde mowers. Now thn, for those not familiar with this, the old concorde was a compact cylinder mower with a small electric motor, plastic rear roller and ront rollers and a tin grass box at the front. the design gets interesting with regards the handle. it's just 1 square beam going up to a plastic hand grip and trigger.
I'd like to find one of these strange little beauties. I remember these by feel from my younger days. I quite miss that design and would like to find one, either with or without box, preferably in working order to showcase in the workshop or maybe even use or restore to pass on to someone who has a small garden I manage for them now and again.
