    Hayter osprey

    Got the osprey to keep running long enough to finish the field its the one over the fence about 2/3rd acre in 3hrs no sweat for the osprey,I left the patch in the middle to show how it all looked before.I do beleive this machine is unstoppable so pleased with it.

    Hello Alan thanks for the welcome this forum has to be my best find ever except for the hayters of course 😊 never tackled a project like this before although have allways been a big fan of older mowers just so much better build quality.I have owned a webb 24" cylinder mower with a seat roller for over 10 years and it never misses a beat.

    Hayter osprey

    Hello everyone first time posting not sure if this is the right place but here goes.Have just purchased an old hayter osprey and hayterette with the osprey my main project they were both bought as non runners but once home I put some fuel in the osprey and two pulls later off she went and proceeded to cut half acre of very long grass with ease but once hot cut out.Have tried a few times more and she starts from cold but soon as hot cuts out and will not start again until cold,any help greatly appreciated.It is a 7hp briggs & stratton not sure how old but has number on chassis 12821 many thanks,Rod.
