1949 Atco 20 inch Heavy Duty with 8 blade cylinder for Tennis

20 inch ATCO Heavy Duty 1949

This Atco 20 H/D has been fitted with a special cylinder for a Tennis Court. It was Purchased as a Trade P/X & was previously used at a large Country Estate near Bath for cutting the 3 Tennis Courts, It had been regularly serviced at the ATCO Service Depot which was at Chepstow until it closed in 1984. When I acquired it the mower had been serviced & stored so was in really good condition, I have sharpened the cutters & repainted some of the machine including the grassbox. This Picture was taken when I exhibited the mower at The Annual Saltex Groundsman's Exhibition. to depict certain decades & the machinery in use, (1940s).
