It seems to be somewhere between 'mower' and 'harvester' but I cannot find a proper translation.

It used to be very popular in small farms which were just getting mechanized before agro-food industrialization made them completely obsolete.

I think these machines are free hardware, they do not host any firmware and everything can easily be reverse engineered.

Also, one of these would help me in my current inadvertent responsibilities of field maintainer. The strimmer is easy but very slow, the mower-strimmer is difficult to use on uneven fields, this one would be perfect. We used to have one a couple of generations ago but it is gone to post mortem metal recycling.

Isn't it a dishwasher of sorts?

I think you can tweak the accessory and replace the field mower blade by a drum or by a dish-washer tank.

I wonder what kind of dishes Russian people usually use.

I've found your device:

It looks like it isn't a dishwasher after all, what it truly is - a non-free javascript (if you decide to visit that page).

I see. My version has no javascript enabled by default. It is a bit expensive though, I might borrow the neigbor's one instead.

Anyway, I have now found an alternative solution which involves less horse power and more horse.

Chickens obliterate the grass at very high speed (no joke). You have to keep chickens in a cote or they will eat all the grass around.

I've got chickens and they don't ruin the grass, but I give them good chicken food and table scraps every day. If they are hungry they'll eat a lot of grass. They also eat an enormous amount of insects, very good for keeping the bugs out of your yard.

Indeed in French the hen always goes "cot cot".

From what I remember, fed well they will indeed keep the yard clean - except for the occasional hen droppings, but then in turn it fertilizes the soil.

Two problems with these -
1. You can't flash them with libreboot
2. They won't run any of the atheros wifi cards

"Field mower" retrieves very similar things, including the second one above.

What I called a strimmer is in fact more accurately described as a brush cutter. The brush cutter blade is around 10" wide while these ones ship with 34" blades. That could save my day.

> run any of the atheros wifi cards

I am considering getting one and hacking it to add remote control.

"Scythe mower" and "sickle mower" return the closest matches, including some nice vintage stuff.

I could also try to combine the horse and the sickle.
