Hi Mich

Many thanks for posting.

This is such an important old lawnmower.
The Greens Silens Messor (silent cutter)
publicized the new 'chain drive' as being silent.

I hope this one is saved.

Looks pretty much complete.
Only thing I see missing is leg back arm power..........
I saw an add for an American push mower with a 20 inch cut....... I think it was Scotties.
good luck

Hi Max and all silent cutter lovers.

Max, that is such an important image.
I would like to make a couple of points: -

The chain drive was quieter than straight-cut gears used
on early reel mowers. Greens made it a feature with their
Silens Messor (the silent cutter).

I wish folks were more observant of noise pollution nowadays.

This NZ image is significant in that to shows the stand
was from Auckland's HJ Ryan (as sole agent).

Ryan, later, would make the Speediescythe ...

Many thanks Max!
