Sickle bar mower.
2nd March 2009
Update 3rd March 2009 - Identified as a "Jari" mower - manufactured in U.S.A.
It would be appreciated if anyone
can identify the make of this sickle bar mower and supply any other information
relating to it.
The machine has many modifications
made to it by previous owners and bears little resemblance to the original.
The "drive mechanism" should provide the biggest clue to it's identity. This
consists of a shaft, raised or lowered by means of a lever attached to the
handlebars, which has pressed (looks like sheet metal) square "gears" on
the ends. When lowered these "gears" make contact and mesh with the ribbed
tyres to propel the machine.
There is no engine on the mower
but it would have been driven with a small horizontal shaft air cooled
motor like a Briggs or Villiers of probably about 3 H.P.
The original paint left on the
machine is orange or it could be faded light red.
Any information would be greatly
appreciated. Also information regarding any 'forums" or "groups" dealing
