ZEPHYR [Greens]

A product of Greens, this was a late 1940s/50s manual roller mower. In 1949 the "Zephyr" was being offered as a 14 inch machine with a 10-bladed cutting cylinder, but by 1956 a 12 inch 8-bladed version was offered alongside a "Zephyr De Luxe" which was a 12-bladed mower designed for fine turf areas. The price of the standard mower in 1956 was £14.6.7d. Early machines are distinguishable by the chevron ribbing on the roller, later machines having straight ribbing.
