I've been tidying up a shed prior to house sale and there's an old Allett 36" cylinder mower. I have never used it but I did put it away end of last season so it does run.

 

I think originally it would have had a Reliant engine and gearbox  but it has a Wisconsin  Robin WM390. I'm guessing it dates back to the 80s.

 

Is it worth using or shall I break it for the bits, I fancy the engine for a sawbench.

It may be worth something to a collector of such items. You could try selling it and using the money towards a more powerful, newer engine for the sawbench?

Yes  but I doubt it will raise £100 so may still break it for bits.

 

I'll have to ask my neice if she wants me to ebay it.
