The British Anzani Lawnrider was one of the first domestic (ie for home use) mowers designed as a ride on machine. The Lawnrider dates from the early 1960s and closely resembles the EF Ranger (Ferring) Easimow which was produced for a few years earlier before the company wasbought out by British Anzani.
Two of our members show off their some of their collection.
The Dennis motor mower was produced from the mid 1929s until well into the 1960s with a design that changed very little over the years. This example was made during the 1920s and attends a number of events throughout the year where it always proves to be a popular attraction. The mower in the background is a British Anzani Lawnrider dating from the 1960s.
The Dennis Motor Mower was produced from the 1920s onwards. This example, seen at Malvern Autumn Show in 2009, was made in 1924. Early Dennis machines can be identified from their square petrol tank (later models had round tanks) but otherwise outwardly look the same as older designs. On the video look out for the way the grass is emptied from the box by rotating it on the mounting arms at the front.
The Dennis motor mower was produced from the mid 1920s until well into the 1960s with a design that changed very little over the years. This example was made during the 1930s and was recorded at the club's annual rally at Milton Keynes Museum.
