I picked up this little mower today, and it appears to be all complete and it works great. I tried to research it though and didn't have any luck. Does anyone know anything about these little machines? Any help is appreciated.

Chris, it is a Manta Mower. There were 3 different handle styles through the production. There was a sngle wood handle, a plain loop steel handle and the twist loop like you've got. The wood was the earliest but not sure about the other two.

Thanks, sounds like you are real familiar with these things. Do you know what years they were made? Thanks, Chris

Oops, I thought we were talking about the scissors on top of the stove and wrote out a lengthy history of the Fiskars company.

Lol. Those would probably be just as easy to cut grass with compared to the mower.

Well.....It would help if I spelled it right. (you just thought I knew about them)  It's a Montamower. I knew they were in business a long time but didn't realize this long. This site shows 1923-62.  http://www.kovels.co...montamower.html

They are neat little machines. If they all work like mine, they cut better than a person would expect to. Its kind of fun watching all the blades work together when im cutting with it.
