Anyone know when this was built? It’s on my farm from many generations ago. The blade measures 83-5/8 inches (approximately 7 feet); wheel diameter, 33-3/4 inches; frame length, 138 inches (about 11-1/2 feet); frame width, 34-1/4 inches.

The front plate reads Sawyer Massey Co. Ltd. Hamilton Ont. It is located at my farm in Hamilton, Ontario. It has been sitting in the same place for my lifetime (I am 58); I am the fifth generation on this farm.
