A DEERING MOWER and RAKE.
THE many advantages the Deering Mower has enables the operator to
work it with much more ease than any other machine, and no time lost in go
ing around stumps and trees. This Machine is so constructed that the driver
is at no trouble in lowering and raising the cutter bar in passing etumps and
trees. With no effort scarcely he brings the cutter bar to an upright position
without stopping the Machine. There are many other advantages the Deer
ing Ideal Mower has that we will show you when you want a Mower. The
Pitman Rod of this Mower has only two pieces, while all other Machines
bave from ten to twenty-five pieces to wear out and be replaced.
The Mower is not all in looking up an outfit. It is essential to have a
i?ood Rake, and the Deering Rake is the simplest Rake on the market. A
comparison of our Rake with other makes will convince any farmer that it ia
the Rake he necls. The devices for dumping are so constructed that a child
;an operate it without any assistance. If you are in need of an out?t let us
how you our Mower and Rake and be convinced.
