Keeping it reel

[Henry, July 25, 2015.]

In the Henry world, all mowers are reel.

The definition of lawn mower from Webster’s Second :

A machine pushed by hand or drawn by a horse or driven by a motor, and usually with a spiral blade or blades revolving against a tangential horizontal knife, used to clip the grass on lawns.
And from Webster’s Third :
a hand-operated or power-operated machine for cutting grass on lawns.

July 26: Earlier this year, Diane Schirf wrote about the reel mower as an American relic.

Wasn't fishing, but seemed to have reeled in a link. Hmmm. :D

Didn’t think you were. But I knew I’d read about reel mowers somewhere before. :)
