What do I have here ?
Hello, I'm new at restoration, I have been given a push roller lawn mower but I don know what make/model I have to research it. I know it's a Qualcast because I've identified some parts with this emblem on it. I'll add some photos and hopefully someone will know exactly what it is. Thanks in advance.
I'm thinking Wondercut...thinking back to my days in the machinery world....always loved the utopia like drawing on the transfer :)
What ever it is I just love the patina; just hope that it’s left alone.
Thanks for the reply, I'll look into it.
I'm thinking Folbate (Follows & Bate) Falcon roller mower, thats from memory as away for a few days & no access to my archive, more later.
In the meantime more info here, if I'm right?
I did a quick photo search on my Wondercut thought and found a photo that whilst it looks very very similar chassis wise it doesn't have the house and garden scene transfer as shown but has one that simply features the name Wondercut...blowing my therory :-)
I've had a look too, some very similar but I can't find anything with the same decals, I'll keep searching. Thanks.
As Clive1997 has suggested I'm fairly sure this is a Follows and Bate Falcon. A mk2 dating from around 1960, much before then they were still being produced in the ' old style ' with parallel handles.
Here is a Falcon I have, you can just about see the remains of the same transfer. As wristpin said your mower has a great original look & will hopefully remain that way.
This is from a 1965 Follows and Bate (Folbate) leaflet. You can see - just about - the design on the chain cover.
