Long Description:
Manufactured between 1929 & 1939, these side delivery sickle mowers were extremely popular in their time. Originally horse drawn, this one has been modified to hitch to a tractor. Ground powered, in a heavy hay crop they required a fair amount of strength from the horses and were difficult to use when the ground was damp or wet, as the wheels were unable to gain traction.
