Collection, Preservation and Display of Old Lawn Mowers


A range of rotary mowers originally marketed by E.P. Barrus of Acton. These were Canadian mowers with 18 and 21 inch cutting widths introduced in 1962. By the 1980s these machines were being made at Downham Market in Norfolk by NJB Mowers Ltd. These had 127cc two-stroke engines and by 1984 had rear mounted grass bags. The first "Lawn-Boy" was made by Evenrude in 1932.
