          I have a 1935 Qualcast Panther (Only two previous owners from new) and a 1955 Follows and Bates side-wheel mower, both in fair condition and have their original grass boxes. Could do with sharpening etc.,
          I don't use them any more, so, FREE TO GOOD HOME ! - if any member is interested in the mowers you are welcome to pick up. I am in Linthorpe, Middlesbrough TS5 (PM me with your contact details).

            Believe it or not I prefer the Qualcast. Could be because thats the one I stripped down and serviced. I have not done the other one. (You can tell from the picture) It makes a grand sound in use and is easy. The witch is a tad heavy and really to big for my little patch. I probable use it when the grass needs a roller on it.
