Collection, Preservation and Display of Old Lawn Mowers


Hi all

Brief introduction.... I'm Karl, 38 from Wolverhampton, I've recently bought my first older mower so I thought I'd join the club and introduce myself.

I picked up a non runner  Acto deluxe 17inch, suffolk engine I believe so I could have a tinker and see if I could get her going, no luck as yet but have found a wire that need soldering back on the points so fingers crossed on that. I did also pick up another Acto deluxe but 20inch yesterday lol, that I got running within a couple of hours, New plug, carb strip down and clean etc, just the basics.

That's probably enough about me for now and what I'm at, so again 'hi all' and look forward to chatting and maybe picking your brains in the future.

Hi Karl, 

I,m John, Sadly I can not offer help in your chosen field of Lawnmowers, I am much suited to the Side wheel push mower, suited for my size lawn.

I own 8 models and one Webb Wasp, my collection is growing at an even pace and only restore such machines that are in a bad way through neglect to ensure many more years of continued personal use and appreciation.

Wish you well and hope you get your none runner up to scratch,

Kind regards,
