Got myself this 14" 8 blade Webb Windsor today.
I have an advert from 1939 showing a 12" Windsor but not the 14". Were they produced around the same time? Any other info regarding the mower type gratefully received.
It came without a Grassbox, so can anyone help me with one for it please?
Thanks as always for any info / help received.
This is from a 1933 trade catalogue. I have also seen similar ads from 1939 so we can be confident that the mower was produced at least between these dates, if not a bit longer. As far as I know it was only produced in 12 and 14 inch versions.
Thanks for this Keith, much appreciated.
Nice little quality machine, but if to be a working machine it looks as though the cutting cylinder is near the end of its working life - many times reground.
Thanks for this Wristpin. As I only have 2 small lawns if I can get one more sharpen done hopefully that will last me for a good while. I try and alternate cutting the lawns using my different push mowers of which I have 7. Not the biggest collection in the world but I love them!! Again, thanks for pointing this out to me, appreciated.
Have sent some bits tonight as promised, glad you got it, be interesting to know of any more out there, Chris P did an article in Grass Box 107 link below
As said not many around in fact only know of 4 now including yours, but I'm sure there are other members with them hidden away.
If it had been a 12 my spare Witch box would probably fit, you could extend it!!!! just weld in a 2in strip.
Hi Clive. Thanks for sorting out some stuff on it for me, appreciated. Thanks for the link, I remember seeing it now, I will take another look at it, thanks. Nice to get a rarer model. I have a spare 12" Webb grassbox. If only I could weld !! Thanks again.
Hi Rob, following your thread I thought I would add my 12" Windsor to the discussion. It has original instruction card and original grease gun attached to the handle brackets.
Hi Sean. Saw it on the Bay of E and if it had'nt been over 3 hours away from me I would have had a bid on it. It looks great and to get the paper work and the grease gun with it is an added bonus.
