Antique mower

Posted by
Harry (Apex, NC, United States) on 28 February 2016 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

The metal wheels and the wooden tongue date this mower. Probably unused for decades.

SONY SLT-A77V 1/250 second F/9.0 ISO 400 16 mm (35mm equiv.)

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at It is gone now.

Ce râteau de fer accompagne parfaitement le tronc de l'arbre et quelle roue superbe.

Marvellous bit of machinery and a sculpture in itself

i like the symmetry here, and as grouser says, it's a sculpture in itself. very appealing muted colours, too!

We used something similar, only not with a steel wheels or wooden tongue, but otherwise much the same. Nostalgia for me.

@beach: My grandpa had one with a blade like this, but it somehow hooked to the back of his tractor and didn't have its own wheels And yes, it was dangerous - he lost a finger using it.

Seen better days. Back home now working on getting my knee back to full function.

Nice. Except for the rust, it looks like it is ready to be hooked up and onto the hay field.

I like the way it seems to belong right where it is ... probably has not been moved in decades.
