ECLIPSE [Boulton & Paul]

A range of gear-driven roller mowers by Boulton & Paul of Norwich in the 1870s. By 1874 three models were available (i) 6, 7, 8, & 9 inch, (ii) 12, 14 & 16 inch, and (iii) 18, 21 & 24 inch; the last two sizes having a draw-rope for manual haulage. Prices then ranged from £1.5.0d for the very smallest to £8.10.0d for the largest. They were ahead of he game in using straight, rather than S-shaped handlebars, many years before Greens adopted that style.
