SHINGLER (Barraclough)

A device marketed by H. Barraclough of Halifax (early 20th century) for Greens mowers which replaced the front roller and allegedly gave a better finish to a cut lawn. The "Shingler" consisted of helical brushes around a cylindrical roller, not unlike the brushes of a Hoover vacuum cleaner.
