Atco Scythe - Dating it?

No - I can't see this question answered anywhere else!  Can anyone date my Atcoscythe please?  The brass plate shows it as No A61.  Thank you in advance.

Hello

 

As said many times on this forum, Atco's are not that easy to date specifically, some models had the benefit of a brass tag with date, but others a rough date can be determined from ad's & catalogues of which many of us have, we do not have the benefit of the Atco's original records. You may be able to date the engine from its serial numbers, but that does not necessarily date the machine.

Some images would be helpful to compare with those we have.
