Vertical Lift Mower.
Th IB is a machine the bar of which can be raised to a vertical position*
by the driver while remaining ia the Heat, and which also is automatically
thrown out of gear. For rough and stumpy landa, parks and orchards, a
vertical lift Mower is a necessity, and the only machine having this-practical
feature ia the McCormick. The devices for raising and lowering the cutter
bar, and for throwing the machine in and out of gear, are very ingenious, but
simple in construction and operation. So perfect is the action of these de
vices that the driver can run the McCormick close up to a rock, stump or
tree, and, without stopping the team, raise the bar to pass such au obstruc
tion, throwing the Mower out of gear, and then lower the bar afterward;.
throwing the machine in gear automatically without loss of any time.
Where conditions,-require a machine for work in rough and broken lan rL^
there is so Mower that wu! compare with the Vertical Lift. Wherever in
troduced, it has proven itself to oe the King of Mowers, as it can be operated,
successfully on lands and under conditions where an ordinary machine cannot
MCCORMICK STEEL HAT RAKES.
Like all other McCormick machines, McCormick Hay Rakes are hmli
on honor. The demand for them has increased yearly with marvelous ra
pidity. For strong, solid and superb Hakes the McCormick meets all the re
quirements of the agricultural world In material they are the best, in con
struction they are the best, and in finish they are the best. In the McCormick .
Hay Rakes you will find features that guarantee clean and easy raking.
. Highly carbonized angle steel is used in the construction of the frame,
which gives to the Rake the necessary strength and rigidity. There is no?
danger of a purchaser of a McCormick Hay Rake being annoyed mik a.
sprung axle or a twisted fra me. On the McCormick Rake are wheels that
will stand the strain of work on any kind of ground wherever it is desired to
operate a rake. A special two-inch carmel tire is fitted on the McCormick.
The spokes are set in a bracing position which maintains a uniformly circular -
wheel. Extra heavy malleable iron is used in the manufacture of the hinges
which connect the frame and axle. These hinges are securely riveted and
will last for many years. Removable boxes in the wheels are notable features
in favor of the McCormick Hay Rakes. These boxes, when worn, can be re
placed 3t a minimum cost and the wheel is virtually new again. The teeth
on the McCormick are made from a specially selected steel and combine the
necessary strength, rigidity and resiliency to make a successful hay rake.
The McCormick Rake teeth gather all the hay, doing clean work, (mick
work and perfect work. The McCormick Hay Rakes are equipped with the
handiest and easiest dumping device found on any rake. So peifect is the
balance of the McCormick Rakes that the weight of the driver greatly as
usta in dumping thc hay.
