    Sickle mower

    We went to the Massey Collector's Association get together this week end. There were about 100 Massey Harris, Massey Ferguson, Ferguson, and Wallis. Most unusual piece of there, was a horse drawn Massey Harris sickle mower with a 3 foot cutting bar

    Never saw a sickle mower with less than a 5' bar. It would make for a long ride in most any hayfield.

    This could maybe be easier for the wife to pull in case the horse got sick.
