Collection, Preservation and Display of Old Lawn Mowers


A range of late 19th century mowers made by Follows & Bate. The smaller versions were sidewheel mowers available in sizes from 12 to 20 inches. The larger sizes were pony mowers available in 24 and 30 inch widths. The mower was being sold in 1871 in sizes from 12 to 30 inches at prices from £4.0.0d to £14.0.0d with prices for larger machines up to 48 inch width available on request.. By 1887 the 24 and 30 inch pony mowers retailed at £10.10.0d and £14.14.0d respectively. A special version made especially for ladies was called the "Croquet".
