Welcome To The Old Lawnmower Club

The Old Lawnmower Club was formed in 1990 to promote the collection, preservation and display of lawn mowers made from 1830 onwards. We have more than 500 members around the world.

Membership is open to anyone with an interest in old lawn mowers. We participate in a number of events throughout the year at museums, garden shows, vintage rallies and steam fairs. You can find out more about what we do on this site.

Working Steam Mower Spotted

We've heard from our special correspondent in the USA that volunteers at the Rough and Tumble Historical Association have completed restoring a rare Coldwell Steam Lawn Mower. This machine is now operational for the organisation's special 2016 Steam Show. It is believed to be the only operational steam mower in the world. You can also read additional information here (includes extra video clips).

Members With Their Mowers Section Goes Live

We've added a new section to display images taken by members with their mowers. This was inspired by the late Tony Hopwood who had the idea when he was our club chairman a few years ago. Tony's idea was very simple: members would visit an interesting or unusual venue - the sillier or more famous the better - and be photographed with a mower from their collection. These photos would then be published on the website with details such as the location to highlight the wackier side of mower collecting. A few committee members have already uploaded some images to get the ball rolling but any full member of the club can add their own. We think it's a fitting memorial to Tony and his idea. Here's a shot of some club members at the recent annual rally alongside the world-famous concrete cows at Milton Keynes Museum. Click here to see the images.
