1950's McConnel hedge trimmer
1950's McConnel hedge trimmer
A Lister engine drives a belt driven reciprocating finger bar mower. The operator adjusts the height and angle of the cutter bar by turning the big wheel and the crank lever whilst also steering the tractor. This was a step forward from the hedge slasher but you still had to clear up the trimmings by hand or fore loader on a tractor.
