Good Afternoon ODK Members,

I have been collecting QPS mowers whenever I find one, I have 3 now. Made in Brisbane by Queensland Pastural Supplies in the 1950’s, I have the large Master Mower and two smaller Cambridge machines

This Cambridge Deluxe machine appears to have done little work and just needed the magneto serviced, carb and fuel tank cleaned. It is missing its pull start so hopefully I will find one to complete the mower. It is powered by a small JAP two stroke engine, very popular on mowers of that era.

Nice mower paul_c. I have vague recollections from 60 yrs ago of using a mower with that funny shaped yellow fuel tank and that wierd looking handle placement. Did they fold down?
I know Jap motors were on a lot of machines.
cheers speedy

Hi Speedy,

Non folding bars on this one as they were in those early days of rotary mowers, the overtype peanut tank was pretty much exclusive to the JAP and Villiers engines.

All the best, Paul

Hello Paul and Speedy

This is an extraordinary find, Paul

I have walked over the large square where QPS was once located.
This was an inner Brisbane CBD mower maker of the 1950s.

I have written a bit about QPS but with more to follow ...

Many thanks

Good evening ODK Members,

Went to a friends house yesterday and was given a recoil starter for my Cambridge Deluxe mower, after fitting a new spring, handle and a coat of paint it was as good as new. These JAP recoil starters are near impossible to find, he had it on a mower that was in his garden as art 👍 Really completes the mower and works very well.
