1931 Coldwell Power Lawn Mower
In May of 2019, a good friend of mine, Jim Tomasetti, stumbled across this 1931 Coldwell Cub lawn mower for sale at the Bernardston engine show. Jim contacted me, and we made arrangements to collect the mower. I took delivery of this mower in July of 2019. For several months this mower sat on my workbench soaking in penetrating oil, awaiting its turn in line for mechanical restoration. The entire month of April, 2020, I spent carefully disassembling, cleaning, inspecting, machining, and repairing this mower back to its glory. Coldwell was the leading manufacturer of power lawn mowers, and at the time was the only mower manufacturer endorsed by the United States Government for mowing federal allotments. Sit back and relax as I take you through all of the work that I have performed to revert ninety years of use and abuse.
