This appears to me to be an old tow behind sicklebar mower that someone has added a frame,front wheels,and engine/transmission to.

My neighbors would really love me if I mowed with something like that with open headers LOL. Quite the novel setup on that thing.

It looks like its a horse pulled sickle mower.By the looks of the motor sitting in that frame I'am pretty sure its just sitting there. The motor mounts look pretty long and flimsy to me,but anyway it does look creative thats for sure.Can you imagine steel wheels being turned by that motor on gravel or pavement.There would be ribbons of sparks and lots of metal left behind.LOL.Larry

The original hay mower was pulled by 2 horses. I wonder how many horse power that engine if running would put out? Maybe a bit of overkill, I LIKE IT!

It's powered by the exhaust stream. The angle of exhaust also keeps it firmly hooked up to the ground too! Ingenious!:bigrofl:
