If anyone who is local would like our old mower, please post a comment with a contact number or email below. It's now fairly old and held together with self-tapping screws & glue, but still runs OK and cuts the grass. There's no silencer: the studs holding it in place having broken so this machine is NOT quiet, but at least everyone will know you're being good & keeping your grass down.
There may also be an even older Mountfield mower with broken handle that can go with it. This was my previous mower (!!!) and was a much better made machine, but for the broken handle, no grass box and a reluctance to start after the winter lay off.
Mower now taken.
