Lawn-mowing African style
It was 60 years ago that I watched my father unpack his very first petrol lawn-mower. It was an English made JAP model with a 2hp Villiers engine fitted to it. This poor sad little machine was expected to cut a lush Kikuyu grass lawn at an altitude of 9,000 feet in the highlands of Kenya -- that is when he could get it to start, which was usually after at least half an hour of cussing and priming with various solvents. At the age of about 8, I decided that I would help by fixing his mower for him (I was a mechanically inclined child) - after which it never ever ran again. At this stage he reverted to the tried & trusted African lawn-mowing method of the gardener with a swing scythe! Since then time has passed, I became an A Grade Mechanic with top marks in New Zealand, started Gardening Aids in 1973, and with the help of some very skilled employees built up one of the leading Garden Tool & Machinery businesses in New Zealand. We are very good at making old mowers go and offering you a wide range of solutions and machinery to help you mow your lawn easily.
