Collection, Preservation and Display of Old Lawn Mowers


An 1892 product of Ransomes, Sims & Jefferies, this was a sidewheel mower of conventional design deriving from the export-only "Paris" and the home-marketed "New Paris" designs. By 1915 the original machine had been superseded by the No.2 version which was then being offered in 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18 & 20 inch sizes at prices ranging from £1.10.0d to £4.5.0d (grass boxes extra). The 10 inch mowers and upwards were fitted with a 6-bladed cutting cylinder. Colour scheme on most was pale blue, with pastel green for the blades and inside of the grass box.  Like the New Paris, it could be converted to  a bank cutter with a long pole handle.
