The Moore Mower

Was going through some old papers this morning and came across this brochure and press clipping for the Moore Mower that was designed and built by a retired director of Howard Rotavators in the late 90s. Some prototypes were built and shown to the trade but I don't know if it ever went into production.

This link may take a little time to load.

Hello,

Looks an interesting piece of kit I would like to think that there is one in storage somewhere waiting to be discovered.

I am fairly certain  that there were at least two prototypes produced  as I think that I can remember them being exhibited at the IOG Windsor show (now Saltex) but that is the last I heard of the Moore Mower. I seem to remember .that local (to me) firm Drake and Fletcher were talking about taking them on but Drake' s groundscare side was subsequently taken over by Lister Wilder so I doubt if anyone there will remember.

Well you have given the knowledge tree a shake now we wait to see what falls out of it, perhaps one of our fellow members will have remember them also.

Ray.

A former member who didn't want to post on the forum contacted me over the weekend. He said that he recalls that the Moore mower was made for a short while by a company called Autoguide but there was never much interest and they stopped making them shortly afterwards.

Yes - have been in contact with Autoglide and they confirmed that production was moved from Suffolk to them and that a total of about 20 were made.

I have a Moore Mower with both rotary deck and cylinder mower. Beautiful bit of kit. What do you need to know?
