1800s ad: Whiteley's Champion Reaper and Mower

. Tuesday, July 23, 2013

Caution! Whiteley's Champion Reaper and Mower, manufactured by Whiteley, Fassler & Kelly, Springfield, Ohio. Farmers look to your interests, and before purchasing combined reapers & mowers, for the harvest of 1858, see that the machine is marked "A.J. Purviance's patent, May 22, 1849." This patent relates solely to the attaching of the platform to the machine for reaping and detaching it for mowing. No combined machine can be made without using this arrangement. William N. Whiteley.
