My Solo Multimot collection

Recommended Posts

Just picked up a water pump to add to my collection of Solo Multimot accessories. From the 80's so are they classed as

" My old Machines "?. You bought an engine then buy various accessories depending what you wanted. I now have 4

engines, a water pump, a chainsaw, hedge cutter and 3 brand new boxed hover mowers. I am always on the lookout for

more. Would these look out of place at a vintage show ? I like them but they are perhaps too modern to show.

The telephone number on the sticker is 404, how long is it since 3 digit numbers were used :)

WoW, that's a rather nice collection.. Not something you see every day or at all.. More than worthy of being classed as an old machine.. Thanks for posting :thumbs:

Thanks vegikev, I've emailed them, I've got a bit of a phobia about phones, I hate using them :( , I don't know why.

I emailed Stuart Dawes yesterday and got the following reply back today, which I thought was very good of them and with a bonus of a parts list for the hedge cutter :)

 

"We moved premises 14 years ago and I’m sorry to say that we destroyed our older written records.  We did sell a number of these machines to the local Electricity Board but am unable to find any further information.  I don’t know if it would be on any use but I did manage to locate just one parts list which I have attached.

 

Regards.

 

Lincoln"

Picked up a few more accessories for my Multimot collection this morning. I already have the chainsaw and hedgecutter but very pleased to find a strimmer. Bought from the original owner who bought them new in 1985.

Another Solo Multimot delivered today, this is different to all my other power units, it has a primer bulb where the petrol filler cap is on the others and the fuel tank is a completely different design.
