CLIPPER [Clipper Lawn Mower]

A late 19th century 12 inch cut sidewheel reciprocating mower made in the USA. The knives worked off an eccentric running between the two wheels to give a very fine cut. One example is in the agricultural museum at Cayuga, New York State. This was made by the Clipper Lawn Mower Co. of Norristown, Pennsylvania (1895-1904) and Dixon, Illinois (1904-1940s).
