Mower Restoration

Mower preservation and restoration is one of the main aims of the club. It is also the reason that many people enjoy collecting and displaying old lawn mowers. In this section we offer some general advice on how to go about restoring a hand mower.

We chose a 100 year old Ransomes Patent Chain Automaton but most of the general advice would apply to any machine including hand and motor mowers. The main difference, of course, is the engine.  We will be adding some general information about engine restoration in due course. In the meantime, we suggest that if the engine runs the best option is to leave well alone.
