The first Suffolk Punch lawnmower was introduced in 1954, a cylinder mower made from pressed steel and light weight alloys, with a powerful four stroke petrol engine.  The mower was made by Suffolk Iron Foundries of Stowmarket.

The Punch was named after a well known breed of ‘Shire’ horse and later models introduced in the 50s and 60s continued the equestrian theme with names such as Colt and Pony.

The Suffolk Punch was a very popular machine and among the most reliable domestic lawnmowers ever produced in the UK – with many still in use today.

Suffolk became part of the Atco Qualcast group of companies and is now part of Global Garden Products – one of the largest lawnmower manufacturers in Europe.

The latest range of modern Suffolk Punch lawnmowers bear little resemblance to the original Suffolk Punch, but continue with the same ethos of offering high performance, reliable lawnmowers at great value prices.
