shanks electric ?

hello everyone

I saw this on eBay in australia and wondered if anyone had seen one before, it is an electic roller mower made by shanks.

was it perhaps for the export market? what was the year of manufacture? are others known to be around?

it looks like a bigger more professional version of the shanks pilot, is this correct?

I would not want it personaly and its far to far away but I am just curios about it.

all help appreciated

Seb.

Shanks electric

Seb,

please find attached a link to a picture of a Shanks Pilot dated at 1948 (the mower not the picture) on my Facebook mower pages entitled Mowerhead.

The clear differences are the wooden handle on the Pilot and the sheer size of the one you have found.
