CHEVRON BLADES

A cutting cylinder with the blades set in a shallow 'V' shape, designed to throw the cuttings into the centre of the grass box and to prevent the blade from "walking" to one side or the other and ruining the bearings. This was a feature on many Ransomes pre-1930s mowers, and on later Dennis mowers such as the "Premier". Also known as "herringbone" blades (USA).
