Hi David,
I'm pretty sure it's a Stothert & Pitt Vibroll 32RD. Built in the 60's and 70's.(commonly seen used as a cricket pitch roller)
Hopefully other members will give more accurate info, but I hope this will keep you going for now :thumbup:

I nearly got one a few years back but ended up with a Aveling GA.
A pedestrian version was for sale at a recent auction.Villiers engine.

So, having got this home it won't start .... Injector not spraying. Have sent it off to get sorted. Meanwhile have stripped the head and reground the valves which were in a pretty bad state. An hour and ten mins to regrind 2 valves ...! Part of the vibrate control is missing. If anyone has a manual I would be happy to buy a photocopy of it or if anyone has a similar machine lying around a few close up photos would be a help .

Yes , very happy with the lister. Have dated it to 1964. Can't locate a manual anywhere though. There was one sold on ebay last year but no sign of one since.

Are you wishing to view a manual on Listers or the roller specifically?
