FAO cradle in action

FAO cradle

One thing with mowing is that it’s really difficult to take a photo of yourself so more thanks to the Webster family for the pictures they took during their vintage weekend in August.

Here’s the FAO cradle in action, showing how it pushes the wheat over into a row as it’s cut.  Yes, I am wearing lederhosen. Austrian dress for an Austrian scythe – sometimes you’ve got to make the effort.
