Need some convincing about why scythes are a worthwhile investment?

Grain cradles

We’ve had a few enquiries about grain cradles recently. Tony gave a guy a hand mowing some oats this season so had a good opportunity to experiment. I’m hoping to convince him to write a bit about it.

In the meantime, a customer pointed me in the direction of the video below which is a really informative view of a grain cradle based on the design from Slovakia that Peter Vido recommended as a simple solution. It’s certainly the most informative and practical piece I’ve come across so far.

I’m going to link to this post from our “shop” menu as well, so hopefully folks looking to buy one will find they’re not too difficult to make.
