This particular type of lawnmower was introduced in 1964, and found favour with local authorities, particularly for cutting the grass on motorway verges, in parks and large gardens. The vehicle was available with either a MAG 2 cylinder petrol, or single cylinder diesel engine. The front cutters retract to drive through narrow gangways or onto small trailers.

The Museums example is a Mark 4M, and has the single cylinder 551cc diesel engine, and was used at Ipswich Airport, until its closure. The mower was donated to the Museum by Ipswich Borough Council.
