The Dennis engine was produced by Blackburn for the Dennis Motor Mower, It is basically a 500cc Blackburn engine modified for lawnmower use with Dennis on the side, it was known as a Dennis engine in mower form and was fitted to the Z type mower.

What cant speak can tell no lies....





Manual here:

Would need more info for the JAP

Cheers Steve

Has Dennis lawnmowers anything to do with Dennis truck builders ? I had asumed they were part of the same company but I could be wrong (like normal) I think the Dennis specalist vehicles used to be in Guildford.

Stu we have dennis's at work , have a look these - http://www.dennisuk.com/lawn-mower/ft-range/ .

we have these ones , and they are a serious professional mower far superior than ransomes and honda ... on par with on par with John Deere .

They cost around 3k plus you can get them with different attachments , for grooming and brushing and airiating .

There is quite a few engines they you would associate with Lawnmowers. Greens mowers original had there own 2 stroke developed from a bike engine.


Later in life the Norman T300 and T600 was fitted to there larger mowers, I did have a picture but cant seem to find it!

Lets not forget the Ideal! one lawnmower engine that seems to break the rule about lawnmower engines!

All engines are worth doing up, you'll probably find there's not much wrong with it.

Looks to be a late JAP 5.

Neither worth a lot of money, but as Stu said all engines are worth saving.
