I've got an Atlas push mower.  They are not cheap built machines.  The company still exists, I called them to ask about the lawn equipment they made and they claim they still have manuals and parts in a mysterious "back room" and that only a few people know about it.  The old lady I talked to said she would get with the management and see about letting me buy some of the stuff.  The sad part is the old lady I talked to left the company between when I called the first time and when I followed up about two weeks later, and no one else says the stuff exists.

Ben W, a shame you don't know  her name to do a search to try to contact her , rare items would have been good to collect , Land Master machines are pretty hard to find here in Australia too , i have an Australian made Land Master rotary hoe with the Villiers MK 12 engine also with 3 speed g/box

Her first name was "Barb" according to my notes.  She would have left in Sept. 2010.   I followed up with her manager (I forget her title, she was an inventory manager I believe) and he said the parts did not exist.
