Collection, Preservation and Display of Old Lawn Mowers


I've come into possession of an Atco '1748' (my understanding - 17" 1948?) but I can find no info on this site or elsewhere..

it has what I believe is the Villiers MK IV C engine, and I will hopefully be able to get it going imminently.

For a 17" it is a large, very heavy machine with enormous metal front rollers.

Does anyone know anything more about it?

Many thanks,

Member Sir Chook is a fount of information on Atcos. It sometimes helps to drop him an email to bring such posts to his attention.

Thanks very much both, that is indeed the machine and gives the confirmation of engine cc, which is nice.

When ive got it running I'll put it on the lawn and get a photo, it's by no means great condition but is ok and I intend it to be a user

thanks again
