These are the types of machines that will last generations
if looked after properly, and there are many mowers bought
in the 1950s and 60s that are still going strong. If you
wish to create a lawn of putting green quality, with stripes,
then our cylinder lawn mowers will enable you to reach this
sort of perfection. See also: Creating
the Perfect Lawn, Lawnmower
the world's best name in cylinder lawnmower manufacture:
Atco produced its first framed 22" petrol powered lawnmowers
in 1922. These heavy machines were sold at £75 each by salesmen
using a specially modified motor cycle and sidecar combination.
In 1935 a new steel chassis was introduced to replace the
cast iron version, reducing weight significantly. During
the war years the 100,000 sq. ft. of floor space at the
company's Birmingham site was given over to munitions production.
In the post war period the Birmingham sites grew four-fold.
Full time mower production and servicing heralded the beginning
of a 'boom' period for domestic lawnmower manufacturers.
In 1955 Atco received its first Royal warrant, granted by
Queen Elizabeth II for Atco's tractors and lawnmowers. In
1964, the first Atco Royale, which has since become a degin
classic, was introduced. In 1975, lawnmower production moved
from the West Midlands to the Stowmarket site of Suffolk
Iron Foundry (1920) Ltd (just down the road from our warehouse,
in fact). In 1986, a second Royal warrant by HRH Prince
of Wales was added to the portfolio. In 1996, Atco celebrated
its 75th anniversary and remains the leading cylinder mower
manufacturer in the world. more
