Hi to all,
I have picked up a SB45 that appears to be in repairable condition. I would like to bring it back to as close to original as possible.

The motor is a 3hp B&S Model 80202 Type 0879-01 Code 78092101.

The hand grips I am not sure if they are original to this model.

The reel has thicker blades than my other machines but have been machined or shaped to give a narrower cutting edge, never seen this before.

As for the chains and sprockets, they are good for scrap metal as the chain has never been oiled.

This is a twin rail machine, unfortunately the id label is detached from the machine but in my possession. I am sure this id label came with the machine as I took it off myself. It is just a sticker.

Please check out the photo's and try to help me with the correct period parts.

Regards
Arty

Hi Jack,

Thank you for the picture. I have another SB45 with the exact same motor which also has the same hand grips. I think the motor was manufactured on 21st of September 1978. If this is the original motor then the mower would have been built maybe early 1979.

Does the brochure show a picture showing the labels etc. I would like to be certain of the labels before purchasing.

Or better still can I download the brochure?

Many thanks for your help.

Arty

Hi Arty
Yep, of course you can ...

Your machine is a mower made when SB were controlled by
NZ's Challenge Corporation. They introduced the Morrisonesque 'pentagon'.

Hope this helps
