    During a recent Garage clearout (and I mean major :) ) I managed to dump the grass collection bucket from my trusty Qualcast panther 30 push along cylinder mower...How I allowed this tragic event to happen I have no idea...Anyway the croix of the matter is I need a new/used collection tray. So if anyone knows, sees or has one of these going begging please inform me at the earliest opportunity....I have scanned the internet ads etc and whilst the mowers are cheap second hand (of which most are sold complete)..They are usually listed as collection only......Barring that I will have to buy a complete new model, which I'd prefer not to do.
    Any help appreciated
    Regards
    C

    Hi Ian, many thanks
    it was brand spanking NEW ...well almost....I'm still livid with myself...how stupid can one be
    Basically I dont want keep mowing this lawn and leaving clippings or raking into new shoots all the time...kinda defeats the object of the resurrection
    Hopefully I can come across one with the forums help in the not too distant future...I'm in England in the middle of July so if one crops up near to where I wonder I can pick it up, saving on postage

    Big C, I was telling my husband about your reel mower with a grass catcher, and he wanted to see the photo. I explained you were in the UK and looking for a replacement. He is an engineer, and always is thinking (usually good thoughts).
    He thinks that the bottom of a heavy plastic garbage can (dust bin?) cut to the catcher's configuration and bolted to the reel mower would be an acceptable substitute.

    I think marlingardener is right, you might be able to make something. (y)

    First thing I thought is that the shape of it reminds me of the big dust pan at work.
