Collection, Preservation and Display of Old Lawn Mowers


A 14 inch hand roller mower manufactured by Shanks with 6-bladed cutting cylinder, available from the late 1940s (possibly introduced 1949). Design appears to be similar to the "Lynx" and may be a domestic version. Advertisements claimed the "Pelican" was "light to handle, easy-running, this high-class roller-type mower gives lawns flawless perfection through its clean, smooth cutting action".
