At the National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Kentucky, this week, we’re showcasing the 50th Anniversary of the Batwing rotary cutter. The Batwing was invented by two brilliant engineers, with the help of one of our founders, Keith Wood. The cutter below was built in 1965 and is as close as they come to the original built in 1963.
This vintage Batwing has gotten a lot of attention from visitors to the show. When people see these old machines, they love to reminisce and share their memories of mowing the pasture on grandpa’s farm, getting stuck while mowing a roadside, and enjoying an Indian summer day while shredding corn stalks.
Woods is proud of its heritage and happy to share it with those who have benefitted from our products over the years. The show runs through tomorrow, so if you’re in the neighborhood, stop by the Woods booth and share your Batwing heritage with us.
