Ransomes Lioness

Ransomioes Lioness Mk1, 12"

 

Ransomes Lioness Mk1 12" Ball bearing side wheel lawnmower was a different breed compared to models made from cast iron, Ransomes created the chassis and wheels from Aluminium to create a light weight lawn cutting experience, possibly aimed at the other side of the spectrum "The female Gardener."  In 1948 this model was priced at £5, 2s,7d and generally offered with a grass box however unlike the rest of the pride - Lion,Leo & Cub, this lawnmower did not come with the popular name badge, instead branding was kept to the wooden shaft to the handle,  the OLC archive puts the manufacture of the lioness into the 1930's.  .
