Very interesting reel Mowers. 2 Atco and a Ransomes. Picked the Ransomes and an Atco up from a new friend this year and the other Atco came from a swap meet in Michigan. Bob tells me I'm pretty luck to have these mowers. How might they have gotten here? Seen any others around here in the U.S?

Those are pretty unique. I especially like the Ransmoes. the story of how they got here is probably as interesting as the mowers are.

Today, Ransomes is part of the Textron company, the same company that owns Jacobsen, but I haven't read of any connection to the two back when that mower would have been made.

Those are cool. I like the look of the engine on the Ransomes.

How do they compare in weight to your others that are similar in size?

The ransomes is about the same as most American made units from the time period. (which is mid 50s). The other two are far lighter than anything else she has. (Trust me I know, I'm the one who moves them most of the time) I had to carry the ransomes over my head to get it out of the barn it was in.
