    Won on eBay.

    Bargain

    Fired first pull (of course) not bad for its age.

    It's very very clean, no rust or flaky paint. Looking forward to removing grass with it.

    I have seen that lawnmower it’s just magical just so quiet and simple, just need to fix the throttle flap issue to iron out the rough idling other than that it’s a peach. I wish I had seen that lawnmower before Chris :Sorry:

    Would be nice to see the quality of work it can do as I always believed that this type of blade is the best you can have to cut grass, its the only type of blade that cuts grass as opposed to ripping it.

    Work in progress to get the blades sharpened and fix the loose throttle butterfly, then some paint new graphics and a grass box, good to go to stripe my garden.

    The modern Honda lawnmowers do not rip the turf up its a fact they are one the best in the world, look at the premiership every top flight football groundsmen use Honda mowers.

    Sorry C.J maybe things have changed with blades but I do know years ago lawn keepers ,green keepers ,etc would prefer the cut of a cylinder mower than any for a better finish .
    Things are looking good with the mower, Thats what I like A MAN WITH A PLAN.
