Where can one find a divider board for a mower? My normal places to search turns up empty results. Either a wooden or the two rod type will work. It is for an IH mower if that makes a difference. Thanks for any help.

On the older mowers with a wood divider I make my own.

Agree with casecollectorsc.

You might consider making your own wooden board.

Take a look at the photos below.









The photo below shows the grassboard measurements.



Hope this helps.

Works if you still have the steel parts. I could get you that steel board in just a few days. Do you have an Amish comunity around, if so go there and find a dealer in machinery that they use. One dealer that speclizes in horse drawn mowers only uses the steel in rebuilding the horse drawn mowers and an unpainted McCormick mower will sell of his lot for $1,500-1,700 ready for the field.

Sometimes a 'farm store' will stock steel ones. ask a farm equipment dealer about ordering an aftermarket. I think you can still order them from Abilene,or Valubuilt. Do a Google search.

I remember Dad using an old worn out chain saw bar. It lasted the rest of the time we had the mower.

The one my Dad had had just a rod coming off the back at that angle. We used it for years that way.

The one I have is used mostly for trimming patches of weeds and grass. It doesn't have a board on it at all.

I would make my own. Or even one out of good sheetmetal would work.

I have always heard them referred to as "Swath Boards" and yes I had to make one using a piece of ashwood.
