CAPITOL [Sweden]

An early 20th century Swedish sidewheel machine with a wooden "T"-handle and trailing wooden roller. One example in an Essex collection has an 8 inch cut; the original colour scheme being dark green and orange. Although this machine was manufactured in Sweden its similarity to the "Capitol" trimmer and edger referred to below makes it likely that it was a product of the same company but made in Sweden to avoid unfavourable import duties.
