Does anyone have information about these machines?
Information on Royal Enfield: There does not seem to be very much information available on these machines.
It really appears that Royal Enfield was more into the manufacture of motorcycles much more than lawnmowers and many of these can be found for sale whereas I have been unable to find a mower for sale or sold on any outlet.
I was wondering if anyone had an idea what my grandfather's vintage Adams Presto push mower is valued at?
The Adam's Presto push lawn mower is from 1932.
mowerpartsusa.com is a valuable resource for prices of all mowers.
You may be able to get some information from this site:
I meant to tell you that the name on the tag Jacobsen is the name of the mower and the model number is part of the numbers on the tag. If you visit the site link I listed before they may be able to help you with more information.
I own a Montgomery Ward mower, model number zyj 10b. It folds halfway down the handle. I am wondering how much it is worth.
Older model push mowers sell on eBay for around $50 - $70 depending on the condition of the mower. There aren't a lot of people who purchase the older mowers because you can now buy a new push mower for about the same amount of money.
Mostly collectors will buy these types of mowers, and then they are looking for ones that are a bit older than the one you have and the ones that have been restored.
I have a Special. No.55 Ballbearing reel mower. I am trying to determine the value and maker's identification?
Mowparts.com has the prices for old and new mowers.
I am wondering about the value and collector demand for a Pennsylvania trimmer and edger, model 706. I also have a reel mower, a Great American, model 2418 - with an 18" cut.
We have dad's yellow metal hand mower. It is a Clemson hand push mower. One wheel on the outside is labeled Clemson Bros Inc. Middletown, New York USA. On the inside wheel, a green tag says Clemson E 17 model L. It works. Could you tell us the approximate value of this hand mower? Thank you!
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.
I have a Pennsylvania Penne reel lawn mower. I was wondering the value.
I saw one that sold on eBay for $34.99.
The Old Lawn Mower Club, based in the United Kingdom, may be able to help you. Here is the link: http://www.oldl h-my-mower-worth
You could also try going on eBay to see if you can find similar items.
We are so lazy in this day and age that I it would be worth anything to the average person. Although, if you could find a collector, it might have a considerable value. It is a link in the development of mowing equipment.
It looks to me like it may be worth quite a bit. I'd keep an eye on ebay.
It looks like Reel mowers are selling.
I just found this on thrifty fun. Maybe someone here could help you or maybe even buy it from you if you're interested in selling it.
hi, i want to buy your mower, made in springfield
I have a mower the. Same as above.
My dad has an antique Great States push mower and we need to sell it. It has the cast iron body and blades and a wooden piece in the rear. It is in great shape and cuts grass well. 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.
Thanks for any help.
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?
I would like to know the year this was made. I have looked at many sites and can't find one with a handle like this one.
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.
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!
Where was the Sterling Clipper 1, manual push mower, made and how old are they?
I have a Royal Enfield Lawnmower, made in the UK 1932-1956. I don't know it's age. It is not running and has surface rust. My grandfather used to use it in the 1960s, but I think it has been in storage since then. Would anyone have an idea of its value?
I saw one online for $100 but it has been already sold.
