Collection, Preservation and Display of Old Lawn Mowers


The Suffolk Clipper Model Ten and Super Clipper Model Fifty were offered alongside the Viceroy in the early 1950s. Both had ball bearings and thick rubber overtyres, and were described as suitable for coarse grass.  They were painted in blue and red (just like a Qualcast).  The Super had chromium-plate tie-bar and hubcaps, as well as a rubber roller in place of the usual wood and a tubular steel handle very similar to the contemporary Qualcasts..  In 1953, the Clipper came in 12-in, 14-in and 16-in sizes, and the Super Clipper in 14, 16 and 18-in.
