A history of mowing – as reflected by Ransomes Jacobsen

Ransome Matador 71 (1999 model)



CGS has recently acquired this pedestrian mower from a country house where it was used to manage their finely manicured lawn.

Since CGS have obtained it, it has the old fuel dropped and the fuel system flushed, new spark plug and air filter also fresh oil.

CGS has also repaired the collection box, fiberglass on the inside and plastic filler on the outside.

Engine: Kubota GS200 5.2hp

It is now ready for the new season to cut your sports pitch or a finely manicured lawn.

We can send it on a pallet if required at a charge or help load on your vehicle.

Images form part of the description, any questions please call.

£1,395.00 (No VAT)


Ransomes Mastiff 30” Mk2 (No Engine)

30” Mastiffs sell for £1,800. + vat = £2160.00

CGS bought this to rebuild but due to storage space, it is being sold as seen.

All rollers move freely, gears engage and the grass collection box opens as it should by the handle. The blade is in good condition and still cuts well.

We were going to rebuild it with a 9hp Honda engine, which you can pick up for £200 – £250

When rebuilt it would be an ideal mower for Cricket pitches, football, and rugby pitches. Or that country house which has a highly manicured lawn.

It is a project mower but structurally it’s sound.

A bargain at the price of £795.00

We can help with loading, collection from Lancashire, or we can send it out on a pallet for an additional charge.
