My husband was cleaning out his garage and found an old Rumsey electric lawn mower. It works! I can't seem to find any information about it except an ad from 1946 and one that does not work on eBay for $600.

Does anyone know anything about these mowers and their actual worth?

I too have a Rumsey Electric Lawnmower that works and is in better condition than the one pictured. I am also trying to get a value of this lawnmower.

I would recommend that you go to the American Pickers website. If anyone can tell you the value, they can. Either that or Rick's Restorations. If they don't know the value, they might be able to point you in the right direction for finding out.

We recently came across this old Swivel Boy lawn mower and cannot find out any information about it. It only has three wheels. It is very different. Any information is greatly appreciated.

i did find where a Swivel Boy mower sold on eBay in June, 2017 for 103.00 but the photos are no longer available so I have no idea as to the condition of the mower. This link is still available if you'd like to check it out.

i do not know if you have checked with the Old Lawn Mower Club as they have a lot of information and a good forum - you may have to join but it is free and no obligation.

i have one that is similar; patent dates on inside of wheels from 1895 to 1900 and the handle is marked "Red Diamond Senior ........." illegible. I bought mine in New England for $165.00. It has original red paint on the metal parts.

I have a buddy that has a Pearce Mower. He hasn't been able to find any information on it. It is self propelled. Does anyone know anything about them?

Answer Was this helpful? Yes
April 30, 20170 found this helpful

I can't find this brand, either. However, what does he want to find out? If it's how to fix it, it probably works the same as many other self-propelled mowers and he could look for a manual for any brand or on YouTube. If he wants to know the value, he could go on mowpart.com.

There is a British website called http://www.oldlawnmowerclub.co.uk/ I'm not sure if they could help with an American lawn mower, but you could try.

I have a 1930s Cooper "Royal" lawn mower, 4 HP engine, with rope start (wrap around pulley). It also has a ride behind Sulky attached. It is almost restored, with a recent rebuilt carburetor.

What's it worth?

I was trying to get some kind of idea on the value of my Caldwell Cub. What I have found out is that it is a not too common; it is a very early Coldwell Cub.


The earliest models did not have a throttle lever. The other obvious early feature is the side plate of the cutting unit and how it attaches to the chassis. The engine was made by Coldwell. The unit has compression and everything moves freely. It still has the Brass Bear Cub and original cork stopper for the radiator.

The only things missing are the fan belt and it needs a new muffler. It has been in the family forever, but I have not had it running for many years. Any info or value on it would be deeply appreciated.

an ebay search indicates that they can go fro $50 to $300, depending on the quality, year, and demand. Definitely this is a very nice antique, and is especially valuable when it can be made to work.

I have my grandfather's Huffy hytamatic lawn mower model number 187, type 6012. You have to plug it in for it to run. It still runs great. Can you tell me if it's worth anything? Thank you.
