Ajax MK3 Handles

Hi, just joined and as ever have a question.  Looking through mower profiles the Ajax MK 3 has two different handle styles, both the ‘crossover’ and ‘parallel’ type.  Does this represent the age of machine or were they produced with both styles?  I have a mk3 and mk5 to restore and doubtless will be asking for some much needed advice in the future. Thanks Nick

Welcome NH, I am restoring a MK5 at the moment, but I have 3, 4 and 5.

The mk3 has straight handles with wooden ends, mk 4 and 5 have the cross over tubes.

Check out the downloadable parts sheets on this site it helped me and I'm still refering to them.

Hi Brad and Hillsider, thanks for your replies.  The profile link sorted out my question very easily.  That helps with my mk3 albeit it needs some parts and a overhaul. I’ve read through the forums for Ajaxes and presume the technical forum is where my next should  be.

I thought you would find the Ajax profile useful, re parts if you post your requirements on here we can then advise you of possible sources.
