John Dixon Has anyone seen a manual for a Deering giant mower w 5' bar
Kruser The university of Wisconsin has a huge database with a lot of McCormick Deering equipment including paint schemes and pictures. The earliest I have seen the No. 7 is 1931 and the No. 6 was around 1917. Lot of pictures. Everything was red except the wheels which were cream inside and a dark blue gray on the outside. The cutter bar was a blue as well.

Re: #6 McCormick Deering Sickle Mower

I have a Big 6, which I date pre-WWI and the original colors on it are red with cream wheels. It is my understanding that they went red, white and blue (see Kruser's posting)during or shortly after WWI as a patriotic thing.
