Description:A root cutter made by Bamfords Ltd of Uttoxeter. Root cutters were used to chop turnips into slices suitable to feed farm livestock. This model was collected from Bamfords factory and was belt driven, using a stationary engine, water wheel or horse power.

Bamfords was founded in Uttoxeter in 1871 by Henry Bamford and made water pumps, taps and agricultural machinery. Joseph Cyril Bamford split off from the Bamford company in 1945 to set up what has become known as JCB - J C Bamford Excavators Ltd.
