A good friend Jim Ricci finally published his book on the history of reel type mowers called "Hand, Horse, And Motor." I just received mine a couple days ago, and I can see why it took him so many years to get it done, it`s 241 pages and has history on every company that even thought about producing a mower, going back into the 1800`s, with lots of pictures too. Here`s a link to it if anyone is interested, it`s definitely worth the investment. If this isn`t allowed on the forum, I`ll understand if this disappears.

Thanks for the heads-up.


I ordered a copy, but it hasn't arrived yet.
