Collection, Preservation and Display of Old Lawn Mowers


The Ransomes 'Anglia was a compound geared hand roller mower introduced in the late 1920s and available in three sizes (10, 12, 14 in). It shared the frame and gears of the Certes, including the malleable iron handles inherited from the 'Automaton Minor'. It was advertised as giving "an extra clean close finish". In 1929 it sold from £6 which, by 1939 had risen to £7.2.6d.  Late models (Mark 5) retained these handles, but the side frames were now made of aluminium alloy, like the Certes.
