Collection, Preservation and Display of Old Lawn Mowers


A Manchester (Gorton) firm which started making mowers in 1869 by introducing the "Climax", the world's first sidewheel machine which dispensed with the heavy land roller. They continued to produce a wide range of machines until the firm was taken over by Qualcast in 1938. Qualcast then continued to make mowers under the name "Folbate" until 1966.
