DUPLEX

A late 19th century combined mower and trimmer made by Dille & Anderson of Richmond, Indiana, USA. This was an asymmetrical machine with the driving wheel on the left and a small "idle" wheel on the right. In a tight corner the handle could be turned through 90 degrees so that it was in front of the cutting cylinder, thus allowing trimming up to edges. The "Duplex" was available in 7, 9 & 11 inch cutting widths.
