Collection, Preservation and Display of Old Lawn Mowers


A product of Ransomes, Sims & Jefferies, the "Lion" was a manual sidewheel mower introduced in the early years of the century and continuing in production into the 1930s. It was available in four sizes, 9, 11, 13, and 15 inch cutting widths at prices in 1915 ranging from £1.6.0d to £1.12.0d. Grass boxes, delivery plates, and a long handle for banks were optional extras. Another extra was Slatter's Patent Front Runner which could be fitted to all sidewheel mowers having a rear roller, thus enabling them to overlap the lawn edges.
