Jusberg's patent "has relation to improvements in devices for mowing lawns, cutting standing grain, and other like purposes." The lawn-mower "shears the sward or lawn very close, and may be stopped completely and drawn back, and an imperfectly-shorn part of the lawn repassed over without arresting the motion of the cutter-head, this property of the device being especially useful in operating under bushes and shrubbery, or close up against sidewalks, posts, or other obstacles." (Patent Number 215,366)
