Not sure if this is the right place but anyway here goes
Been clearing the shed out today forgot i'd got this



I've had it for about 10 years never done anything with it,the person that gave me it said he'd had all his married life and not used it for years he's 84, anyway to cut a story short I cut the lawn with it and not a bad job, nice bit of exercise.

Very nice too, what a lovely old mower, certainly don't make them like they used to.
