Ransomes Edge Trimmer

A popular edge trimmer amongst mower & other horticultural collectors.

Introduced in 1900 and continued in production until the early 1940's, Lloyds of Letchworth also supplied a badged machine with their name.

Several have surfaced with a flower guard & I have been led to believe that these were later models, however I am yet to see a reference in Ransomes catalogues or advertisements to the flower guard? Not even mentioned in the 1940 catalogue, would appreciate any views on this. The guard on mine & others I have seen appear to be more or less the same design.


1900 - 1940's
