Hello ODK history lovers
Turner made lawnmowers for just over a decade.
They left the mower-making industry on a high (record profits) in 1970.

The Model P70 would be the final side discharge model – the Golden Coronet.
This 18” mower was offered with a Kirby 2-stroke or 4-stroke, with an electric
start option on the four. A polythene side-catcher was also an optional extra.

This was the age of the safety lawnmower, or as Turner coined it,
their Safe-T Mower. Turner, one of the pioneers in Australian lawnmower
safety, gave us a double-skirted base on the Coronet.

For completeness, I should say that the P Series, included three
separate and completely different models, The P70, PD70, and SP70.

PART THREE – Operator Instructions
From about 1968 Australian mower makers agreed to a voluntary
code for safe lawnmower design. Various makers adopted marketing
programs that capitalised on safety being a desirable selling feature.

Hence, Turner introduced their Safe-T Mower range of lawnmowers
and they were advertised with safety being a key selling feature.

This is reflected in the documentation that accompanied every
Turner lawnmower.

The most obvious thing to notice is the simplification in operating
instructions. Gone were the bloated manuals of the early 1960s.

The new approach was for short, succinct, instructions that
probably reflected a reality – folks get bored with reading too much.

So, accompanying the ‘green’ Operating Instructions, there was
a separate ‘orange’ Safety Instructions card that summarised the
Standards Association of Australia recommendations for
operating lawnmowers.

Also note the third document – a handlebar hanging-tag -
directing owners to air filter maintenance.
