SIDEWHEEL MOWER

A mower, usually manual but occasionally powered, with the blades positioned between two outside-frame wheels, and driven either directly or through gearing; thus dispensing with the heavy roller. These were first introduced in the second half of the 19th century. (See "Pennsylvania", Follows & Bate "Climax" etc). Where no other information is given in the Directory, the reader may assume that the mower is a manual one.
