What on earth is this beast?
No connection, just something I've not seen before.
The roller adjusters look similar in design to those on JP models?
It looks to be a JP Super Power Mower 16in, have had a couple of these that were mid 1930's
A bit of info here......
It must be a JP super. I've included photos of my JP Super electric. If you look at the side frames they are exactly the same. Hope I'm right. Thanks Sean
All principal JP models - most with images - are listed on our JP timeline page.
Thank you all, still a fairly bizarre looking machine even without the funky camera angles of the ebay ad!
It is an early 12" JP Super Electric,made in 1949. It looks as if it has been back to the factory at some time and had a clutch fitted to the rear roller; the switch on the motor is certainly from a later period. Early Super Electrics had a different switch assembly fitted using the 2 holes just above the new clutch housing.. Henry Ellis
Yes, this is the one I’ve bought!
