Australian manufacturer producing mowers for the home market. According to American collector Jim Ricci "Ogden began making mowers about 1946. In 1961 they bought Qualcast - Australia. The lawn mower production operation was closed down and sold off in 1974. I believe that only parts were available after that time, not complete mowers". Jim goes on to say that when he visited the parent company in Oakleigh, Melbourne, they had no lawn mower history available and then made only locks and security products.
