The K And K Mower Patent

• CATEGORIES: Documents, Features • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

In February of 1948 Allan Keyser filed a patent for a side mower. It appears this became the design for the K And K Manufacturing Company’s Mower as seen in the brochures at bottom. You can view other early mowing apparatuses here.

“This invention relates to a mower attachment for the presently popular small, four-wheel drive, automotive vehicles popularly known as jeeps, and has for its principal object the provision of means whereby a mower bar can be quickly and easily attached to, or detached from, the vehicle so that it will be easily visible and easily controlled by the driver of the vehicle.

Another object of the invention is to provide highly efficient means whereby the angle of attack of a mower bar may be adjusted to suit the desires of the user and the requirements of the particular crop being harvested.”

    I sold a nice one to a VT Willys Enthusiast several years ago and he is trying to get his Jeep out and about. Come to the Vermont Auto Enthusiasts Show in Waterbury, VT Aug. 8-11 to see if he makes it. You’ll also likely see one at The Great Willys Picnic in Kempton, PA on June 9, 2019. This is the most fun a Willys Nut can have with his clothes on and it’s all free!! There’s Willys Special Equipment stuff there.
