I have just joined. My interest is in early Rover Slashers from the early '60s of which I have three. Also I have several Rover mowers, models not known. Red B&S 4hp, blue chassis with a single belt drive. It is my aim to restore the slashers. All are running. The mowers are another story.

Hi yashica

I'm sure the rover fans would like to see pics of your collection and help with model ID.

Cheers

Hello yashica and wce
A warm welcome from me too.

I have fond memories of the 25" Rover slasher mower.
It was a favourite with municipal councils and the AUS military.
It was a tremendous commercial success and it's life span
is impressive - about 3 decades!

The interesting thing is that the HD25 was originally
named the Rover Rider.

As soon as I work out how to upload images I will do so and ask many questions.

The problem I have at the moment is with my two Rover push mowers. I am not certain of the models but they have the red 4hp Briggs and Strat on a blue chassis which is a side through. There is a belt underneath for self propulsion but I prefer to push. My problem is that the carby is on the fuel tank with all mechanism exposed - ie al the springs. These have been damaged or have gone missing over time. I tried ordering a few sets but all I received were el cheapo Chinese made springs with no 'guts'. Can you help with these - where may I obtain them and which one goes where. These mowers are tough little beats and I wish to get them back into service. Yashica
