Visitors to our website can now access our online Directory of Manufacturers and Models. This directory was originally created as a printed booklet by one of our members some years ago. The objective, then as now, was to compile a comprehensive reference list of mower manufacturers and the models they produced. It's been updated many times as newly-discovered models and manufacturers have been unearthed and added to the list. We know there are many gaps to fill in terms of missing companies or machines or additional information about existing entries. It's still a work in progress.
There are some simple rules for items to be included: one of our editors must have seen either an actual example of a mower or a published reference (such as a photograph, advert or editorial) about a company or one of its models. We'll be happy to add or amend entries when we receive information that meets these criteria. Mowers made after 1970 are generally not included.
The Directory was transferred from a printed to online version a while back but access was restricted to full members of the Old Lawnmower Club. However, we have now decided that this valuable reference resource should be made available for everyone.
