SEARCH ON FOR OLDEST WORKING ATCO
Stiga launch competition
As part of its centenary celebrations, Stiga (UK) Limited who own ATCO, have launched a search for the oldest working machine still in use in the UK.
The ATCO Standard was launched by Charles Henry Pugh in 1921 and became the world’s first successfully mass produced lawnmower. Stiga say ATCO is the quintessentially British brand and is used everywhere from small gardens to rolling country estates.
“Longevity and quality are the cornerstones of the ATCO brand and we would like to find the oldest machine that is still used,” explains Gary Tully, sales and marketing director of STIGA (UK). “We have no idea how many older machines are still in regular use and this is the first time we have attempted to find examples. We are not looking for museum exhibits but working machines.”
Details of everyone who enters will go into a prize draw for the latest ATCO 16SH.
To enter, owners should visit the ATCO Lawnmower Facebook page and upload a photograph of their machine to the pinned competition post.
