This a very early cylinder mower complete with box I put it on my tiller that I use on a regular basis this only to see how it fits and what is required to make it work it will be fitted to one of the old merry tillers

Never knew there was such an animal. How hard is it to push? It looks top heavy.

The lawn mower is driven by the engine  and the blades are driven by a centrifugal clutch that is driven by the engine  I have the clutch on one of the old merry tillers

I do not know how it will work it may be ok on the level only time will tell :thank_you:

I think you really need a sickle bar for your collection,  like the one that's taking up space in my shed ? comes bolted to an early 60's MTP (Merry Tiller Professional) PM me if interested.

Those cylinder mowers are a bit thin on the ground, seems to be more rotaries..but I see you have one of those too, good stuff I always fancied the full set.

Those Merry Tillers turn out to be pretty versatile machines.  Thanks for sharing.

 

Did they endorse these attachments or was it an aftermarket company producing them?

It looks like the decal says "Wolseley". Is that the same company that also made automobiles?
