Can You Spot The Difference?

We're inviting our members to bring "catalogue" mowers to our Annual Rally at Milton Keynes Museum next weekend. Catalogue mowers are machines made by a manufacturer on behalf of another company such as an agent or retailer who then sells them as their own, usually with a name cast into the wheels or on a badge mounted on the handles. Often these mowers were sold through mail-order catalogues, which is why we refer to them using this name.

There are lots of examples around and it's possible to find almost identical mowers in different colours and with different names. Sometimes it's only the name on the wheels that's different. Come along to our annual rally and see if you can spot any mowers like this.

Spotted by one of our members on a shopping trip to Manchester, here's a new way to use an old mower (click on image to see larger version). 

We occasionally see mowers being used in advertising and in shop displays. Goes well with that grass frock, doesn't it? Apparently the display is at River Island, Arndale Centre, Manchester. Send us any more images you find like this and we'll try to use them.
