Collection, Preservation and Display of Old Lawn Mowers

Three 6’s

This one is for Lee as I know he commented that he liked a good guessing game. To be honest I'm happy for anyone else to join in if they wish. I have some photos of three mowers. These mowers are not common and not often seen. I am going to give you some clues without showing the photos. The idea is to guess what mowers they are and I will reveal the photos. Two of them are I think fairly easy the other may prove difficult. Let's see.  Each mower has a 6" cut, two were manufactured by Thomas Green and the last by Ransomes. They are all push roller mowers and very old.  I may reveal more clues if this proves difficult. Good luck

Hi Sean. Multum in Parvo and a Silens Messor for Green's and Automation for Ransomes?  If you drop me an e-mail I have something relating to Green's you might be interested in? It's not a mower!! Cheers. Rob

OK, the two made by greens, silens messor and Multum in parvo,

The Ransomes is a tricky one, although until recently a listing popped up for a 6 inch automaton so I'm going to go for that.

Yes it was on EBay. It was up for an unbelievable price. It's so rare,  I know of only two other people with one. I had to get it to prevent it going to a bad home or being used as a very expensive garden ornament. I'm skint now lol. I'll offer more photos of just this machine by putting it on the 2021 Virtual Rally later this week.
