ATLAS [Ransomes]

Very similar to the Ajax, the Atlas was Ransomes' answer to the Qualcast Panther, with chain drive in a pressed steel cover and cast iron side plates.  Unlike the Panther, it had a proper divided roller with free-wheel, and unlike the Ajax, with its modern all-steel grass box, it had a traditional wood-sided grass box, of larger capacity than the Ajax, presumably also to compete with the enlarged grass box of the Panther.  The Atlas was a very  popular mower, and it is surprising that it was not revived after the war.  Like the Ajax and the Panther, it was made in the 12-inch size only.
