If I'm not mistaken, Ransomes is made by Bobcat?
Assuming this is correct, which I think it is, you might start looking in that direction.

Ransomes is owned by Textron, but also has many other bobcat, bunton, jacobsen, Ingersall rand, and other. Some of the machines have changed names, models after Ransomes(european company) was acquired by Textron.

Bobcat was initially, I think, a product of Jacobsen, which was the commercial lawn care division of Textron. Bobcat, Ryan, Bunton and Steiner evolved into Commercial Grounds Care.

Schiller-Pfeiffer was the manufacturer of Classen, Little Wonder and Mantis.

Sometime late 2008/early 2009 Commercial Grounds Care and Pfeiffer-Schiller merged into what is now known as Schiller Grounds Care.

I don't know where the Ransomes name fits in for sure but I believe it was the golf course equipment division of Textron and the Ransomes Bobcat name was used a name recognition tool for marketing.

This appears to much like the umbrella group of Simplicity, Ferris, Murray, etc under the Briggs and Stratton name.

You should be able to find a dealer/parts source by doing a search for "bobcat mower parts".
