MAYFIELD

A company formed as Croft Engineering after World War 2 to make garden tractors and motor scythes. Initially based at Croydon, the firm moved to Redhill and Rustington before being acquired by Allens in the mid-1960s - the name being changed to Allen Mayfield. In 1975 the company was sold to Arun Tractors and traded under the names of Arun Mayfield and Riverside Mayfield respectively before production ceased in 1981. Their early motor scythes had a 120cc Villiers Mk.10 engine but later models had Villiers 25 and eventually Briggs & Stratton engines.
