JP Super

The JP Super was the first machine made by JP Super Lawnmowers Ltd in 1921 and was still made in various forms in the early 1960s. This is a 12" model made in 1931 and fitted with the optional aluminium front rollers and multi-blade (9) cutter.

This first mower was called a Type19 (the part numbers are pre-fixed by 19) which may seem odd but could be explained by the very first engineering drawing of the mower was dated 1919. Type 20 was the 2-wheeled carrier; Type 21 was the 24" water-cooled power mower and Type 22 was the 16" Super Power mower. No other JP seemed to be described by Type number.
