Collection, Preservation and Display of Old Lawn Mowers


Produced by Alexander Shanks and Son Ltd. c. 1950, this was a 12" roller driven hand mower similar to the Silver Comet. Intended to boost the Company's ailing lawnmower division, production lasted less than two years. Together with the Hawk 2 sidewheel mower, the Emu was the last hand mower Shanks manufactured.
