Collection, Preservation and Display of Old Lawn Mowers


A late 19th century sidewheel mower made by W.E. Lape of Syracuse, New York. A smaller version was marketed as the "Rex Junior" and advertised as "the legitimate offspring of the "Rex". The "Rex" was available in 13, 15, 17, 19, 21, 23 & 25 inch sizes, and the "Rex Junior" in 12, 14 & 16 inches; the main difference between the two mowers being the diameter of the drive wheels.
