MARQUIS

A range of mowers by Ransomes, Sims & Jefferies. The early "Marquis" was a 1920s manual roller mower with "chevron" blades on the cutting cylinder, but the later post-war models were high quality powered mowers for the professional market which were still being made into the 1990s well after the company withdrew from the domestic market. By 1997 the "Marquis" with its 15cm cut was the smallest machine being made by that company.
