Scythe mower is a machine that is mostly used in agriculture field, kitchen garden, or in lawns for mowing grass, cutting shrub, or reaping crops. Earlier in twentieth century, it was used extensively in North America and Europe, after which it went out of favor as farm mechanization is progressed. However, small farmers are showing interest in scythe mower and it is a useful equipment for farmers who do not have resources to buy advanced and expensive mowing equipment. It is small in size, easy to use, and it consists of longer blade and longer handle which is helpful for fast and even working of the blades attached to the cutting bars. Scythe mower can be used in rough terrain with clean cutting as their height is adjustable. A worm gear, switchable drive as well as a wide high traction tires enable mower to mow in any position. There are two types of scythes, the American scythe and the European scythe. The American scythe has a narrower, thicker, straight steel blade and a curved snath. The European scythe has much thinner and curved blade and its snath is almost straight.
Market Dynamics: Global Scythe Mower Market
