    Dening Somerset Machinery finger mower

    Elderly neighbour, simplifying his life, gave me one today. Are they rare? I've never seen one here.

    Evening John


    Only Dening product I've seen/dealt with is a 3point mounted pto saw bench we have here, dated from the mid 70's I expect given that it came here when the farm took on land, the 2 old boys and some kit in about 1982.

    I should think anything Dening out there is quite rare?

    "DENNING OF CHARD"

    We have a horse rake, swath turner and left hand mower here but that's not as far from Somerset as you John.
    Don't itch for something if you're not prepared to scratch for it.

    Hmm .. the left hand mower must be quite rare - obviously for people with a left hand bend

    I'm quite impressed by the design; similar layout to the Fergie 'Rattler", but without the long breakaway bar which went up under the right hand axle - and was a real b... to fit, as I remember. there is an adjustable linkage which starts under the left hand lower link, and produces extra lift to the outer end of the cutter bar when the whole machine is raised on the 3 point.

    Several of the castings are stamped "Dening" I wonder if they were made in-house.

    Spose I should consult Google.

    Dennings of Chard (Somerset) were also renowned for their disc harrows. I only remember trailed versions but they may have manufactured mounted versions towards the end.

    Google had little to say. Does anyone know when the business shut the doors? Did another company buy the business & change products?
