Qualcast Electric Panther

Hi,

I have recently acquired a Qualcast electric panther very cheaply.

This is my first mower until I have a bit more money, It works well and the house I have just moved to has a lot of grass. I noticed the blades appear quite worn.

I would like to get this mower running as nicely as possible. The first step I think is sharpening the blades which I will send away. I think then I will have a mower that runs nice than most of the chinese stuff around today.

I do not appear to be able to find a lot of info on this mower. Is there, or is it possible to please get some information of a step by step on how I might go about removing the blade for sharpening? Even though the mower is old and cheap I would rather give it a few more years than wreck in completely! Money permitting I would like to move onto a petrol to reduce the need for cords!

Thanks

An image or two will help.

IAn image or two will help. The first use of the Electric Panther name was on a machine with a large cylindrical motor with a 3-core mains lead, ie needing an earth. The later machines were often referred to as EPs hand had a red plastic motor housing, and were double insulated .

Thanks for your reply

Thanks for your reply wristpin. It looks as though it has the red casing. Pictures attached.

I hope this helps. Thanks
