AUTO-SICKLE

A post-1945 reciprocating-knife mower by Lloyds, the Auto Sickle was a self-propelled two wheel development of the pre-war "Autoscythe". Having a rectangular frame, this mower had two large wheels on either side of the centrally-mounted engine, the cutter-bar and the handles balancing each other fore and aft. In 1949 the "Auto-sickle" was being sold at £60.
