    We had a few through the workshop back in the eighties. From memory they used to be fitted with a special 12 Volt battery that had three terminals- one negative and two positive. This allowed for two speeds on the motor as the voltage could be altered from 12V to 6V to suit conditions.

    As far as I remember the rest of the mower was quite straightforward and followed normal practice. Enjoy it and good luck!

    I remember the three terminal batteries but only on Atco machines. Not saying that they were never used on Webbs but we only saw them on Atcos. Some Webb machines had an on- board charger that resembled a car ignition coil of the day.
