HI Ya'll,
This P and Q Model: R reel mower has a many names that appear on it. It is marked Handy Dandy Garden Cultivator from LeClaire MFG Co. LeClaire Iowa. It has a B & S model N engine. It also has Camden, NJ on the tag. I would like more information such as the age of the model R. Any history on the Company is welcomed. She is a great runner!
Thanks,
DB1

Thanks for the website. Lots of good information there.

This reel mower seems to have been a kit.
Many names and places and models are on this one.

The Briggs and Stratton engine on this mower is a Model: N. Type :306217
The reel head has Pennsylvania on the tag with Camden, NJ and says it is a Model R.
The tag LeClaire, Iowa Handy Dandy Garden Cultivator says Model L.

I would like to know what P and Q stands for. We also have a an old wooden handle push lawn edger painted green with the same P and Q embossed on it.
Thanks,
DB1
