Collection, Preservation and Display of Old Lawn Mowers


A product of Shanks, 1920s/30s, the "Triumph" was a horse drawn mower for golf courses similar to the Ransomes "Ideal" and employing a similar method of raising and lowering the height of the cutting unit. By 1939 the 36 inch "Triumph" was being offered at £65.0.0d. Normally it was sold with horse shafts, but a tractor drawbar or a whippletree (aka “whiffletree”) for oxen was also available.
