ID and approx age please ? Qualcast push
once I know what it is , I'll put it in the correct place , thanks
Mother in law (87) decided she wanted a push mower , because Alan Titchnarsh said so ! lol
So we've been looking out for free/cheap ones and got this for free.
I'm guessing I'll get it back to restore when she has got it out of her system !
But I do want to set it up and sharpen it before she has a go
Sorry , there isn't much left of the decal. My best guess is Panther ?
I haven't seen any with the wooden handles , or this style bottom blade adjuster ? (is that what it is ? ) which makes me feel its a bit older ?
it cuts well , if I tip it back a bit , so when the WD40 has soaked in , I'll adjust the cut hieght and have another go.
oh , and what's the best thing to treat the front rollers with ? I have danish oil if that's any good ? thanks
Is just me, or are all the pictures blank ?
oh .. ok .. I wondered why I wasn't getting any replies !
I'll try again , thanks
You need to use the method to add pictures explained in the posting page. I can see you've added them as some sort of Google content but that won't work - it's too sophisticated for the CMS system we use to run the site.
ok , thank you . it's looks fine this end , so I went with it ! .. I'm just uploading now , thanks again.
I think that should do it , thanks
oh , and excuse the state of my lawn :-/
Now I can see it, yes, your best guess was correct, it is the original Panther
Yes, it is an old Qualcast Panther - a very successful product of theirs. When I joined them they were selling the Super Panther, which again was a solidly built roller mower with cast iron side plates.
The adjuster you are looking at is used to position the grass delivery plate (the curved plate) that is used to deliver the grass into the grass box.
thanks , I've now found the user manual , which does say it's for the bottom blade.
Apologies - I always thought that the central knob moved the delivery plate. On this model it must be attached to the bottom blade. They were not manufacturing this model when I worked there.
