Maybe a Webb bottom blade ww3233, ring any bells?

I have no idea when or why I bought this brightly finished blade with WW3233 on it, maybe I'm daft to think that ww means Webb, but it's all I can think of at the moment, it's quite light and very sharply angled at the cutting side, any suggestions, please.

Could it even be off an electric powered model?

It's 16 inches long and has only five fixing holes. Any help is appreciated.

3233 was the part number for the bottom blade for an early Hayter 20" Ambassador Super but its too short and the wrong shape ! If I'd written WW on something it would have meant Westwood but I don't think that they ever did a cylinder mower. Early Webb part numbers usually had some Alpha characters such as LM and later ones were W and five digits, or L and six digits.

More head scratching required!

Are you sure it is a bottom blade ? I haven't seen anything like it and I wouldn't have thought that a five hole mounting was enough for a sixteen inch blade.

Thanks for the replies, I stored it with my bottom blades so took it for granted it was one too, maybe it is Westwood, not Countax I feel!

Of course, why didn't I think of that.

WW = Westwood and 3233 = retaining bar for the flap behind the HST unit.

Now this IS a bottom blade for a well known British mower, and if anyone wants one, I have three! They were either very popular of my stock control was **** !
