The neighbor used this 50 years ago to pull behing a 2 horses. Used to mow the apple orchards with it. We plan on restoring her over the summer.

A friend of mine's father used one of those right until the day he died almost one year ago. Pulled it with a team of draft horses to mow a pasture and the side ditch along his property. Horses are a lot quieter and prettier to look at than tractors, but the backfire is much harsher! DaveM
