Honda Reveals Oldest Motor Mower

The Hall & Duck Trust has won a competition organised by Honda to find the UK's oldest working motor mower. The winning machine was the 1902 Ransomes motor mower that many club members know as "The Cadbury Machine".

Club members Mike Duck and Andy Hall found the mower some years ago and restored it to working order and it's been to a number of events since. The prize for winning the competition was a brand new Honda rotary mower. They've been featured in a number of magazines and on the radio as a result. You can read more here on the BBC website here.
