Acquired this last month, some of the information crept into the Lawnbug ride on topic so I thought I had better start a new topic in the right section :hide:...

 

Not got too far with it yet other than a wash & brush up and new decals from Titch, and found a manual in my literature collection.

 

Hopefully picking up an interesting addition at the weekend... :D

A good find there but I would think that the little Suffolk engine would be working quite  hard with that ridger (spelling??) body in Wealden clay, but perhaps it's destined for a more relaxed life?

I agree, the engine would indeed struggle, this lot will be for show only methinks :thumbs:

Looking good. On the Flymo parts illustration there's a lever to trip the bin latch to allow it to tip. Is there any sign of one having being fitted to yours or was it a latter addition?

Yes there is, looks a bit Heath Robinson and as I intend to show the machine with the barrow on, the pins and r clips will be replaced by bolts and wingnuts to make it all a bit more sturdy :)
