Hello and welcome to the Old Lawnmower Club,  you will find the instructions for loading photos to the forum in the guidelines section located at the top of the first page of the forum.

I am sure that there will be a member out there who has information about these machines, I believe that they were a bit of a handful to work with so please allow yourself plenty of room if you decide to have a test run.

If you type Allen Scythe into the search box at the top of this page you will see every posting relating to the machines that is contained here, including mower profile MP014 from the Lawn Mowers section of this site.

Good luck with the search,
