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.

You can buy the solid metal ones off ebay and other places they are pretty much a universal fit.The wooden boards for a show piece are fine but to use get an all metal one
if you want it to hold up as the wooden boards will break out lots of times backing up in heavy hay while clearing the blade.

I also bought one online some place but I cannot find the link anymore. It was a nice wooden one a guy make and sold. I bought it first and then made one using that one I bought as a pattern. Since then I have found the links I posted previously. I still have the one I bought and the one I made using oak for the board and a broken ash pitch fork handle for the rod.

Family centers, Tractor Supply have them. Google Value Built. I bought 1 from them several years ago for an AC mower.

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

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

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

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.

My google search for Valu-bilt.com shows other mower parts but no divider boards. Would you have a company name or phone number for Abilene?

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.
