Hi all, have been lurking on the forum for a while and thought I would post some stuff back regarding my restoration of a Ransomes Ajax Mk 5. The forum's been great for providing me with some background information so I thought I would start posting some of my pictures back to add as a further resource. Here are a few images as purchased on eBay. I had to drive round the M25 to Dartford to pick it up and I paid a bit over the odds (hindsight is a wonderful thing). It was being sold on behalf of an old dear in her 80's who's husband had bought it in the 1960's. It came with half of the original box (which I've chucked as half a box isn't really much good!).
The mower had some damage too. Both side frames had had some repairs with aluminium putty. It had been used to mow a narrow strip of grass in the middle of a driveway between two concrete strips. The grass was slightly lower than the concrete strips and just slightly narrower than the mower, hence both side frames were scraping on the concrete strips!!
