Collection, Preservation and Display of Old Lawn Mowers


This Swedish firm originated in 1682 as gun makers and later made their name as sewing machine manufacturers. As well as the popular "Dux", examples of a small manual sidewheel mower by this firm c1960 are occasionally seen in the UK. This had a metal pole handle with the crosspiece consisting of a "vee with knobs on". In the 1990s the company introduced a flat solar powered mower which, once set up, needed no human guidance. This sold for around  £2,000. The firm is now part of Electrolux.
