Collection, Preservation and Display of Old Lawn Mowers


A late 19th century American gear-driven roller mower made by Hills, the "President" had "Archimedean"-type blades whilst the "New President" from the same stable had 3-bladed "propeller"-type cutters as opposed to the more conventional cutting cylinder. In 1891 these machines were available in 10, 12, 14 & 16 inch cutting sizes with prices ranging from £2.5.0d to £5.10.0d. The Dublin agents were Thomas M'Kenzie & Sons of Gt. Brunswick Street.
