Jacobsen 22 inch Greens mower 1973

This is a strange story, From 1973 to 1980 I was involved Importing & Marketing Jacobsen Turf Equipment (Big Mowers). We brought in 10 of these 2 stroke pedestrian mowers for cutting Golf & Bowling Greens, Cricket too. They were a lovely light little mower to use, but they were too expensive compared with the popular Ransomes Auto Certes & they were 2 stroke. So they did not sell well, in the end we gave the last of them away in deals for much larger mowers. 4 years ago I found this one on a popular auction website & got it for £20-00 much to my surprise, (I doubt anyone else knew what it was). It had probably never cut grass in the 40 years it had been here in the UK so I sharpened it & got it going, now it is in my collection & I bet ya-all wonder why? Well, it is rare here & it is a very good little greens mower. " So There"!
