Best Answer

The Adam's Presto push lawn mower is from 1932.

  • If in good condition (looks like yours needs a lot of clean up) it could be worth $100 or more as there are not a lot of these around.
  • Here is a link that gives a little history about this mower. You can also ask questions (create a free log-in account first) and someone may be able to answer any questions.

Who knows about this mower? I was wondering what something like this is worth now a days. It pushes and the blades rotate like it just came off the assembly line. I'm seeing if it's worth selling as an antique or sharpening the blades and using as a mower.

Your mower may be worth more than the usual reel mowers but, of course, getting what its worth may not be so easy.

Here is a site with info posted a year ago but it has a lot of very good suggestions on how/where to sell - if that is what you are wanting to do.

The only other info I have is that the wheels say "B2R" and "B1L" on the right and left, respectively. I have seen quite a few on eBay for around a hundred dollars.

I have a very rare, all original mower from the Pastime Lawn Mower Co. Detroit, MI? 1890's 14" cut double rotary lawn mower with gearbox/drive shaft and rare cast Pastime letter wheels. It is in working condition. There is no damage seen and the handle is good and original. I've owned this for 40 years. It is the only one I have ever seen. Any idea of the value anyone?

As you have found - there is almost no information available on this mower so that could be good - or - bad news as to the actual value (what someone might be willing to pay).

There are quite a few collectors of old (vintage) mowers but that means going to auctions that handle this type of machine. You may be able to Google for auctions near you (maybe even farm equipment auctions) but these are rare.

The only site I know of that may give you any information is located in the UK - but you can join their club (free) and send then info on your mower and they have a lot of members who like this type of thing and may be able to help you.

What is approximate value of a circa 1939 Eclipse push lawn mower? It is in good, usable shape. The tires were replaced years ago and the roller covering needs repair. Is there a market for these old fellows? Does anyone know of collectors of old lawn mowers in the USA? Am interested in finding a home for this still active old fella.

Answers

I should say there's a market, Billy! They cost next to nothing in terms of operations and maintenance, provide an excellent fitness activity, are environmentally friendly (glass clippings are actually good for our lawn) and can be used any time (i.e., no worries about noise pollution waking the neighbours early on a weekend morning).

I have one too. Works great. Apparently, has height adjustment based on the height of the roller, which has bolts for setting heights (2 positions.) I was just mowing with it. Works great! In excellent shape, from handle grips to blades to roller to wheels. Should I sharpen blades? I'd have to use a grinder to do so. I live in Midwest and would be interested in selling, though my son wants to keep it. It was "green" before it was fashionable!

There seems to be a lot of questions about older reel mowers but very information in answers or on line.

I got interested after seeing so many people wanting to know their value but - wow - almost no sites with true information.
I have continued to check your question hoping someone had found a site or had knowledge about this type of mower.
No such luck...

I did find a site with a photo and some info but it is probably not the same mower as yours.

I have a vintage manually operated reel mower. It has five blades with a blade width of 16". On the handle shaft is engraved "The Rex Ball Bearing, genuine patented self adjusting ball bearings, manufactured by the Henley Lawn Mower Co., Richmond, IND USA".

I am having some trouble making out the numbers on the side plates.
One side says "Patent 2.005.502" (I think) and the other side says "Patent June, 18, 19?? (I am unable to determine the last two numbers without pulling the wheel, which I am very reluctant to do). It has five spoke cast iron rims covered with hard rubber tires.

I have attached some photos for you to view. It is still in good working order. Can anyone please provide some estimates of when it may have been manufactured and what it's value may be today?

Thanks and best regards.

Unfortunately, I couldn't find the exact lawnmower or patent in question, but I am pretty certain that this company, since it has also been based in Richmond Indiana area may be related to this product. http://americanlawnmower.com

If I were you I would write them.

Aside from that, I see these antique things going anywhere from $80 to $120 on eBay and other places. They're actually still perfectly useful unless the blades are dull, and then it costs a sum to have the blades sharpened again.
