Details on Dain Mower
I dug a Dain 2-horse mower out of some trees. “Dain Mower” is cast into the frame, along with “John Deere Moline Ill.” in the toolbox cover. I’d like to receive information on the mower. It has a 4-foot cutting bar and a cavity cast into the frame for an oil can. The gears are exposed and there are oil cups with covers in four places. I would appreciate hearing from any readers who have information on the mower.
