Thanks for letting me join.

I was excited to see this resource available after researching my 14" Mower I just purchased. I have never heard of Sensation Mowers but I am looking forward to trying to restore this one.

You will find most of what you need here.

Looking for any information on a sensation electric lawn mower


Sensation made many electric models while Howard Phelps owned the company from 1938 - 1966. Some had wood decks, some had aluminum or steel decks. Can you identify the model you have or describe it?

Aw, you make me incredibly jealous! Where did you find that little beauty? My wife, of all people, wants a 14" - she loves "baby versions" of things. And I actually have a couple of places to use it!

see page 6 of this 1980s era catalog:
the 14" version was referred to as a "trimmer" in that one. For some reason I have in the back of my head that these were once referred to as a "Cemetery mower" but I don't remember why I thought that and I can't find any mention on this site about it. Now that Yahoo Groups has tossed all of our old messages we can't go search there, but I did manage to download them all using a script before they did so I'll see if I can find where I put that and search around in there too. I think the 14" ones are worth restoring if you do it make sure to post pics!

I did find the post from the Yahoo Group I was thinking about. Sadly, we didn't know much about it but I posted it on this page:
