    Hello all, new member so forgive a terrible post.

    I joined up because a couple of years ago I picked up a Bartrop Greenfield ride-on mower, dating from the late 1960s/ early 1970s. I believe it’s an HD-8 model.

    I’ve only subsequently realised how rare it is. It’s in rough but pretty much complete condition. I’m wondering if anyone has any more information about them?



    All I know relates to W L Bartrop. They were agricultural engineers and ironmongers in Highworth, the town I was born near to. Some photographs of the shop and works can be seen on the Highworth Historical Society website
    I also remember seeing one of the Greenfield tractors at a vintage rally held near Highworth around 2003.


    Bartrop was advertising the Australian HD8 and the M8 models in the mid-1970s. They were certainly shown at the Royal Show and also the Institute of Groundsmanship Exhibition, both shows in 1975.

    Trade reports state Bartrop saying that they imported the ride-on machines in kit form and then assembled them in the UK.

    Bartrop detailed that the HD8 had a Honda G65 6.8 hp engine.

    A few Greenfield HD8 and M8 ride-ons have come to light over the years, but they are indeed rare in the UK.
