Collection, Preservation and Display of Old Lawn Mowers


An American asymmetrical sidewheel mower made by Dille & McGuire of Richmond, Indiana, USA. Patented in 1885, this had one driving wheel on the left and a narrow "idle" wheel on the right. The "T"-handle was offset to the left, unlike the later "Racine" which had the handle offset to the right. In 1888 this mower was available in 10, 12, 14 & 16 inch widths, with prices ranging from 60/-d to 80/-d.
