Hi if the name plate is still on the engine it may give you a clue to which power unit it is, otherwise do your best with some pic's.

It appears SISIS have specialised in grass care for the last 80 years.
It also appears that they are still in business - wouldn't they be the best place to ask first?

Sounds like an aero-main, you will probably find that the engine is a 420cc BSA. Whilst 'Sisis' has been around for 80 years, it now belongs to Howardson, they also make Dennis mowers. They do have the documents etc, but I am not sure if any of the Sisis staff still have any involvement in the company.

I've got a Sisis pedestrian roller. Curious beast. It also has a 420cc BSA engine in it. There's an alloy makers plate on the handle, but it give no detail other than the model and works number of the roller, no engine info.

Sometimes it hits, sometimes it misses ...........
