Now that I have a lawn, I'd like to keep it neat and tidy. My old man
used to have a push along cylinder mower with a heavy roller at the back
which allowed you to get that 'lawn' look.
The only mowers like that I can find these days have a petrol engine on
The only push along mowers I can find just have the cylinder blades with
Any ideas where I might find an original lawn mower?
asked my relations about this, they own a mower shop.
try a museum they said.
not sure if they were just winding me up.
tried everywhere for you in the north west, with no luck.
my advice, try a museum :o) or wait for my neighbour to croak it, he has
infact I might ask him for it as he now gets the local gardener to do his
I suspect you are correct.
I went to 'Toad Hall' down here near Henley. They have a lawn mower
specialist with some very expensive stuff on show.
The only push along was an antique miniature lawn mower that probably
dated back to the early 1900's! A work of art in cast iron though!
I'm sure that as it's something I actually want I'll never find one at a
junk shop or car boot. Once I give up and buy one with wheels on the
sides, I'll probably dig several up in the garden.

Just spoke with the Lawnmower shop I used to work at.
No, they don't know of anyone who still makes them but they do get
folk asking if they can make use of them. Best ask your local mower
place if they can keep the next one they get for you (make sure you
get the grassbox). An ad in your local paper will also be a good plan
- there are millions of them rusting in the back of garages.
Failing that, Qualcast make a half decent electric cylinder with big
roller (which has a scarifier attachment too)
Your local mower shop should have them.
