Never saw the bubble mower except in pictures such as this.

 

 I do however have one of the little Springfields in the accompanying article.  My Father sold those mowers back in the fifties & I picked one up at auction a few years ago. It is waiting my attention.

I have a Simplicity very similar to that, but the bubble has to come off to mount the bagger.

No, saws like that for simplicity didnt have any safety to speak of, pretty sketch.. 

Youd have to have some pretty big 'walnuts' to operate one of those. A buddy of ours has two or three
