Originally ATCO named from Atlas Chain Company 1921
Charles Henry Pugh was born in 1840 in Newtown Montgomery. Unfortunately he never
lived long enough to see his first lawnmower. The company produced the first mass
produced petrol lawnmower, powered by a 1½ horsepower Villiers 2 stroke engine.
This was one of the first Atco models to be manufactured. The 9 blade cutter would
give an excellent finish. A lot of detailing was put into the machine note the brass
gauges, fittings and tool rack, integral throttle and choke lever. This a beautiful
example of the workmanship from over 80 years ago.
