Trying to figure out exactly what it is.

Looks like a one wheeled reel mower.
Probably intended for trimming before the weed whackers were around.

That's what I'm thinking, trimmer. Works real well.

Do you still have the other half?

HaHa! That's the reason I picked it up. Have never seen one.

That's what I'm thinking, trimmer. Works REEL well.

That's a cool little trimmer.

Never seen one like that before. Now I wonder any how of us have made it this far without one! Rick

I'd fall over using that thing! Gotta have at least two wheels on it!

Most of those I've seen have a cutting disc on the side and are meant to be used as an edger.

Never seen one before,and I hate to break it to you but I hope it doesn't need parts as a sears parts site search comes up model number not found.....imagine that!

As others have already said, it is trimmer.
You "youngsters" had no experience with these, but they were quite common in the '50's & '60's.
Pennsylvania (known best for their gang mowers) made trimmers which also had a thin steel disc to be used for edging (as mentioned previously). ....The disc was mounted on a bracket which was above the wheel. ....To use the edger, the trimmer was flipped upside-down.
Early trimmers used wood handle. .....Later trimmers used metal handles.

This one has a wooden handle.
