For Sale - 1950s Dennis front quarter light glass
Brand New Toughened glass and kitemarked. Made to fit 1955 Dennis F8 Fire appliance but will probably fit other fire appliances and some Pax models.
Happy to post out a tracing if that helps. Although brand new there are some very minor scratches caused during storage.
£50. 00 + shipping which Iím guessing will be £15 to allow for packing. Note that as glass this will probably be un-insurable.
Located Redhill Surrey and personal collection welcome.

Dennis 36 inch mower for sale
In use constantly since 1998 or thereabouts. It starts well and runs along but there is a certain loss of power now when it encounters rough grass. Possibly a valve because the compression seems good and there is no sign of high oil consumption, nevertheless the engine will need attention. Offers in the region of £250. Located Sussex.

Dennis Society - 8th February 2022
Parts Wanted - Dennis Sports Roller
The parts needed are: a tip roller axle, its nylon bearing and possibly the tip roller itself. Please see photos of the roller. From an old instruction manual, I believe it may be called a Mighty, Major or Minor Sports ground roller. The main large roller is about 36 inch wide and the small tip roller is about 17 inch long. There is no sign of a model number on the casing, but there is a serial number: 070103. Any help.
