Hellloooo All...

Hi all... just a quick post from a new member....  :)

I am new to the world of vintage lawn mowers, my normal interests lie with older and classic cars, mainly Rovers and Morris Minors (I have a few)..

My background is Royal Navy, an Aircraft Engineering Artificer. I now work at Perth college in Scotland as a lecturer.

Anyway - Lawnmowers...  I now have obtained a couple of old Lawn mowers which I look forward to getting back to their former glory - a Ransomes Ajax Mk4, and an Atco 14 with a villiers engine, unsure as to the date of the Atco yet, I think its 40's? - I will get some pics up once they are both out of the car. 

- I intend on using both once sorted. :)

I have to say - this forum and club seems to have a wealth of knowledge. I have been browsing over the last week, loads of fab and interesting information - thank you!

And I look forward to getting to a some events etc and contributing where I can.

Kindest regards,

Kevin

Hello Kevin

Hello Kevin

Welcome to the forum & hopefully to membership of the club.

You will certainly be looked after by the many contributors to this site, as you suggest images of the Atco will help in dating it, the Ajax Mk 4 was made between 1958 & 1964, that would sit well with a Morris Minor!!

Cheers for now.

Indeed it will Clive... and

Indeed it will Clive... and thanks for the welcome... and yes to membership too.. 

Can the Ajax date be narrowed down even further? I assume not?

The Atco is still in the boot of the car at the mo. It fits nicely in a Rover 75 estate.. :)

Welcome to the forum.

Welcome to the forum.

Uploading images can be a chore, especially for new members. There's a how to here:

Re the Atco, in the rare event that it still has its brass ID plate present and in good condition on the flywheel side, then dating it won't be too hard.

You assume right re dating the Ajax, only if you are lucky enough to have the original purchase receipt/invoice.
