Collection, Preservation and Display of Old Lawn Mowers


A powered roller mower utilising J.P. components made by Mitchells of Nottingham in the 1920s. One known example in an Essex collection has a Brough 2-stroke engine and a tubular steel handle (which makes the "Automo" one of the first mowers with this latter feature). In April 1926 "The Motor" magazine advertised the 16 inch "Automo" at a price of 40 guineas.
