• Mowers On National Geographic TV

    Old lawn mowers are featured in Britain's Greatest Machines on the National Geographic channel in the UK (available on Sky and Virgin) on Saturday 20 February at 9pm. The show is presented by Chris Barrie (Rimmer the hologram in Red Dwarf) and features machines from a different decade each week. This week it's the 1920s and the show includes Chris trying out an Atco Standard. That's all we know but if you wanted to choose one mower from the 1920s it would have to be the Standard. You can see more about the show, with still images and a short preview video at the link below.


  • Honda Reveals Oldest Motor Mower

    The Hall & Duck Trust has won a competition organised by Honda to find the UK's oldest working motor mower. The winning machine was the 1902 Ransomes motor mower that many club members know as "The Cadbury Machine".

    Club members Mike Duck and Andy Hall found the mower some years ago and restored it to working order and it's been to a number of events since. The prize for winning the competition was a brand new Honda rotary mower. They've been featured in a number of magazines and on the radio as a result. You can read more here on the BBC website here.
