Obsolete Ransomes Parts is an online trading name of Bartram Mowers, a well-established family firm based in Norwich, with an additional showroom, workshops, and spare parts department in Ipswich. We keep a huge range of stock on-site rather than holding it remotely, which means that we can have many of our parts sent out the same day as the order is placed. We know that it’s really frustrating when you only discover a part has worn out or failed when it comes time to use that equipment, so we make sure we deliver quickly. There’s nothing worse than being held up by a damaged blade.

Here at Bartram Mowers Ipswich we only offers genuine, high quality parts and we have the unique benefit of being located just a mile from the Ransomes Jacobsen factory. This means that we have a strong working relationship with the company, and an expert understanding of their equipment. Our buying power means we’re able to offer extremely competitive pricing and pass on large discounts off the list price to our customers for many of the parts.

To keep your machine in top working order, it is recommended that parts are maintained and replaced where necessary. These machines are built to last, and with the right care and attention they really will. If you’re not sure which parts you need, please contact our dedicated parts team with your machine’s model number. Our knowledgeable staff will be able to help you chose the right parts every time.

Through Lawnmowers Direct we have been able to supply customers from all over the UK and Northern Ireland with lawnmowers, chainsaws, garden tools and a range of other horticultural equipment. We have a reputation built on excellent levels of stock, unbeatable pricing, fast delivery, a high level of customer service and a real pride in what we do, whether online or face-to-face with our local customers.


About Ransomes Jacobsen

Ransomes of Ipswich is likely to be a familiar name to anyone who knows something of the history of lawnmowers – they were the first company to produce the devices in 1832 under license from Edwin Budding’s original design. Since then, Ransomes Jacobsen has been at the forefront of lawnmower excellence and has long been both a commercial and a household name. Ransomes Jacobsen machines are still being manufactured in Ipswich, less than a mile from the Ipswich branch of Bartram Mowers.
