Double 3

I'm breaking all the rules and my own principles by discussing such a modern mower but does anyone know what the 'double 3' stands for on this Hayter ? Many thanks.

Naughty !

Naughty !

Never heard of it,  was going to suggest it referred to the cutting width - 33cm or in English not quite 14". Then I discovered that there was a 22" version so that theory is out the window.

If my memory serves me

If my memory serves me correctly it refers to the different distribution of the cut grass, double collect or rear discharge, the 3 or 3rd was the ability to block the shoot and turn it into a Mulcher of sorts. They were relatively popular in their day as they were cheaper than most Hayter being a badged Murray I believe.

Many thanks, I was just

Many thanks, I was just curious. It certainly made short work of long grass on a bank.
