Collection, Preservation and Display of Old Lawn Mowers
Well this one looks like it's been under the sea for 20 years but I thought I'd put up a couple of photos, principally for Messorestore, although I'll admit it's not a push mower :)
Fab collection! Roll on spring! What's the mower with the midget engine nearest the camera?
Well, that's a new one on me (he says, as if he knows what he's on about). However many blades has that cylinder? Should make a decent cut if set up properly with all those.
Do you mean the Villiers engine ? It's the Arundel Coulthard.When the weather is better I'll get it out and,do a feature on it. Unfortunately here on the North Downs I've got nearly 6 inches of snow today. I bought it from the HD Trust about two years ago. The big advantage was having an original box with it - can't be many of those left ! Do you collect petrol mowers ?
Well here's another of my machines that looks like it's been under the sea for 20 years but thought I would put up a couple of photos essentially for Pandawill. I'll showcase this 6 inch Multum in Parvo ( push ) with some close-up photos if it's not considered too far gone.
Thanks @messorestore, and sorry for the late response!
The Multum looks lovely, please do a feature on it when you have chance.
Yes it's the Arundel Coulthard that I was referring to - from your photo which seems to have disappeared for some reason. Not having come across one of those before finding one to add to my collection has now jumped to the top of my list - I'm from Preston originally!
Hi, yes I'll feature the 6inch Multum on the showcase forum soon. I'll also feature the Arundel Coulthard when it's back ( having the engine serviced - I'm not a petrol head I'm afraid so engines pass me by ) They do pop up occasionally but not often. The next time one crops up I'll message you. Sean
Thanks Sean :)
Hi, thought you mind find this old ad interesting. I include a photo of my machine as you say the other is missing. Cheers Sean.
Thanks Sean, it looks great - I really like it.
I might do a bit of digging and see if I can find out where precisely the Arunco Works were
Just waiting for this to arrive in the post. It should have the full address etc on it. I'll copy it and either put on forum for you to see properly or I could post you a photocopy.
Nice Sean !!
