Collection, Preservation and Display of Old Lawn Mowers


An early 20th century product of Shanks which continued in production until 1939, this was a conventional sidewheel mower first introduced around 1900. By 1939 it was being offered in 10, 12, 14, & 16 inch sizes at prices ranging from £2.6.6d to £2.18.6d (grass box, delivery plate, and an extra long handle as optional extras). The colour scheme was cherry red and light blue, in varying combinations. Most examples seen have four blades, though later models had five. Superseded by the "New Britisher".
