MOW-RITE

A manual rotary mower (1960s ?) . The vertical drive from the main wheel was, by a series of chains and pulleys, converted to horizontal drive which in turn operated a rotary cutter. Whether the machine could be pushed fast enough to give adequate rotation to the blade must remain questionable, although it seems to perform well enough on short grass. This was probably a catalogue or mail-order mower although no other details are available. The colour scheme of the one machine seen is sky-blue.
