Collection, Preservation and Display of Old Lawn Mowers
Walking through the Ransomes Crawler section at Tractor World, I spy a congregation of Ransomes mowers and an edger!.........
.......Now I shall see what mowers are in the auction? (to be continued)
A Ransomes Automaton in the auction. Collection Box, rebuilt satisfactorily, 1 height adjustment knob inncorect.
The chain Automaton again, and Dennis z type.
A Brott flail "mower."
I visited the show with Alec on Sunday and we saw the Ransomes mowers for sale too. Somebody bought one of the edgers...
Good to hear that a historic machine has gone to somebody who can appreciate and cherish it.
On the subject of cherished Mowers, here are some more pictures taken at the auction.
Coincidentally; "Mowing Wurzel Senior" requires a model 146402, 6hp Briggs & Stratton engine. similar to this one.
preferably code suffix 66. (these are usually painted white for 1966 period)
(see the wanted advert)
Thanks for posting the pictures. Looks like a great show had never heard of it until these postings (just Googled it) - a date for next year's calendar!
Looked up the auction results too - huge number of lots! Liking the British Anzani Lawnrider in your photos - I bought one like it at the OLC rally auction in May.
Probably won't be buying any more mowers for a while though as just last week sold our very practical old Nissan hatchback (bought the lawnrider home in it easily) and bought a Lexus IS saloon - nice car but tiny boot and the seats don't fold down :-(
Thank you for commenting on my pictures, as well as auctions, I am pro-active to visit Museum's displaying Mowers and gardening equipment.
So good to see the OLC compiling a map and key of sites to see them.
The British Anzani Lawnrider featured, is part of the "Lawnmower Diaspora" of a late and extremely much missed friend and member of the OLC.
On the subject of the Lawnrider, this one is 1964.
Tractor World Show: Perhaps the OLC could have a stand there?
