No side wheels or petrol here .

As the weather has been so fantastic this Bank Holiday I decided to get a few toys out of the cupboard. The idea was to have no sidewheels or petrol mowers. I will post most of the photos up on the Virtual  Annual Rally Forum 2021 with a bit more info. Enjoy.

Just for completion could you have a run through of what they are Sean, I think I know most but a few I'm not sure of.

Great photo!

No images have arrived here

No images have arrived here but was there ever a 14” Marquis?

Edit. Sorry, just realised that you were referring to the image in your earlier post. Still interested in the Marquis though.

Dear Wristpin, I could tell

Dear Wristpin, I could tell you were very excited when you thought I'd had a temporary moment of madness and bought a petrol Ransomes Marquis. However I was a bit more canny and acquired a Mk3 push one and what a beauty it is. There is a long and very interesting story behind this mower. I wasn't going to share the mower or story with anyone as I'm hoping that an entire special article is published about this mower very shortly. Don't worry you shouldn't miss it. I am reluctant to publish any more photos of this very special mower so as not to spoil the article. Regards Sean

Yes, thought for a moment

Yes, thought for a moment that you’d joined us petrolheads on the Dark Side! Looking forward to the great reveal.
