Ransomes Leo Mk2

Travelled to Stockport to purchase a Ransomes Leo Mk2, It is in good shape and comes with a grass collector which requires the large dents to be hammered out to improve the shape, sadly no throw plate as often is the case, nevertheless it cuts well enough.   

I will improve on the name plaque with gold paint to highlight the lion and the lettering without removing the original paint, there is no need to do any restoration on the mower it self.

Having a Mk2 allows me to compare one other Leo in my collection, there is not much difference between the two other than a change in the T shaped handle and the Cylinder knifes, overall I am pleased not to have passed on it, I know how much distance can effect wanting to buy good mowers.
