I think that you will find that it is  a Landmaster Saturn. They were normally blue and white and were available as either push or powered.

EDIT.  I was looking for a picture and in so doing it appears that your machine was originally just known as the 14" and then re-named the Saturn  but  the later versions with the grass box at the back  were then  called Sovereign and Sovereign De Luxe

Markyboy: creating multiple threads on the same subject makes it difficult for responders.

Not sure you can call the Sovereign a later version of the Saturn, yes there are superficial similarities, but there are a lot more differences. A bigger cutting width, the grass collection to the rear etc. It was even made by a different company, Landmaster by this time belonged to Atco Qualcast Suffolk.

Perhaps I should have said " evolved into... or replaced by" as I believe that the Saturn  model name disappeared  with the introduction of the Sovereign .

From memory, production of the Saturn ended quite sometime before Landmaster was sold.

H , you could well be right on that. My earliest reference to the rear boxed machine is in one of the old green covered parts books carrying the WEBB name on the cover and it is referred to as the AB 2407 Sovereign De-Luxe Chain Drive ( November 1983). The same book has the Stoic and the " 27" and 30"  rotary grass cutters "  which we probably first knew as the Wolseley Clearway with optional reel and scikle attachments.

Ancient history - until the next  auction site discovery or barn find !

good grief, I forgot about Webb buying Landmaster before they got swallowed up by Qualcast.

You forgot the 19" and 23" Wolseleys and I think you are referring to the MK2 yellow Clearway, the originals (MK1) were painted red, fitted with an 8HP Kohler engine and the Merrytiller  reverse disc assy

I've never used a lawnmaster before. I am always happy with my Greenworks 25022. How's your experience on  Lawnmaster? Thanks in advance.
