Qualcast Classic 35S Petrol Self Propelled Lawnmower Recently Serviced And Sharpened complete with scarifier cassette. This is one of the latter variants where the fuel tank is mounted on top of the engine with a much improved petrol cap that doesn't leak a drop. I have fitted an inline tap and new fuel line as these models don't come with one.
Apart from a few light scratches to the side panels this mower is in lovely condition. The cutting cylinder has been professionally reground, the bottom blade has been removed, sharpened and the cylinder honed to leave those much sought after stripes.
I have fitted an adjustable comb to the front roller, for those that like a well manicured lawn, this will flick up those spiky blades that most mowers leave behind, immediately before entering the cutting zone! The 35S features a three way drive system allowing independent engagement of the cylinder and rear roller, roll only, cut only or mow self propelled, five pre-set cutting heights for mowing and one for scarifying, and a large capacity front grass-box for easy collection. Both drive belts and the cylinder drive idler have been replaced. All the nylon gears are in perfect condition, see pictures.Being the 35cm (14 inch) model it is ideal for the medium to large lawn. It takes about 10 mins to convert this model into a very efficient scarifier for moss and dead thatch removal by replacing the mowing cassette with the scarifier cassette using just one allen key, a full demonstration of the mower and scarifier conversion is included in the sale. The cutting height is adjustable between 10 and 35 mm using settings 1-5 on a knob on the side.
There is also a height setting'S' for when the scarifier cassette is used. The 4-stroke engine runs on standard lead-free petrol and the fuel tank has a capacity of 1.7 litres.The capacity of the grass box is 40 litres.
