AJAX [Lyman Wilder]

An odd American mower patented by W.C. Farnum in March 1871 and manufactured by Lyman Wilder of New York. This was a roller machine with a disc-like rear land roll acting upon a series of "propeller"-type blades moving in the vertical plane, quite unlike the conventional cutting cylinder. A "V"-handle was fitted. The cutting width appears to have been about 10 inches.
