Many British Manufacturers are finding an increasing demand for their motor-vehicle products and appliances in countries overseas, and an indication of the esteem in which machines produced in this country are held can be obtained from a recent order which has been secured by Marshall, Sons and Co., Ltd., Britannia Works, Gainsborongh. This company have secured what we are told is one of the largest contracts for steam road rollers placed since the war, this being for 100 engines of the company's latest Class S series for the Greek Government.
The engine in this type of roller has compound cylinders with piston valves and radial-valve gear. The machines which are being supplied to Greece will incorporate in the construction of their boilers the Marshall patent anti-incrustation firebox with cambered crown plate. The hubs and spokes of the road wheels will be combined in a single steel casting, and an Allen three-tine scarifier will be attached to each roller.
