Sorry about that title, which is mainly for the benefit of the search engines. But whatever, yesterday we finally got organised and went through these 7 Grasshoppers to see which are saleable as working machines and which we part out in due course.
Right now we have one each Series 1 and Series 2 machines not far off ready for sale, so please get in touch if you’re maybe in the market for one, or indeed for any used spares.. The email address is sidandelsie (at) btinternet (dot) com – but do please bear in mind that we’re in the UK! We’re fine sending parts abroad, but a Grasshopper packed for shipping weighs around 12kg and international rates are getting rather silly.
We’ve also sorted through our Grasshopper bits and pieces so that hopefully before much longer I can actually start taking pictures of what we have spare, but for now I can tell you that it includes
Accessory Box trays
One (khaki/”green”) oil can
One Lower Lubrication Cover part #502724 – this is the round black plate with “ELNA Swiss Made + Produit Suisse” and all the patent numbers
Then there’s most if not all the parts from 2 x 220volt machines and 1 x 110v (all three being Series 2 machines), including the cases.
