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.

Mervin The Magic Mower

Australian club member Drew Maywald, author, retired teacher and corporate writer, has written a series of children’s stories about a lawn mower called Mervin the Magic Mower. The mower is based on a Scott Bonnar model 33 which Drew’s kids loved in the 1980s and used to drag a cart around the yard while they mowed the lawn.
