Vertical Lift Mower;
This ia a machine the har of which can be raised to a vertical position ?
by the driver while remaining in the seat, and which also is automatically
thrown out of gear. For rough and stumpy lands, parks and orchards, a
vertical lift Mower is a necessity, and the only machine having this practical
feature is the McCormick. The devices for raising and lowering the cutter- .
bar, and for throwing the machine in and out of gear, are very ingenious, baa
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 an 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 lande
there is no Mower that will compare with the Vertical Lift. Wherever in
troduced, it has proven itself to bo the King of Mowers, as it-can be operated
successfully on lands and under conditions where an ordinary machine oanno-1
MCCORMICK STEEL HAY RAKES:
Like all other McCormick machinea.JMcCormick Hay Rakes are butti
on honor. The demand for them has increased yearly with marvelous ra
pidity. For strong, solid and superb Rakes the McCormick meets all the re
quirements of the agricultural worli In material they are the best, in con
struction they are.the best, and in nnibh 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 givea to the Rake the necessary strength and rigidity. There is no
danger of a purchaser of u McCormick Hay Rake being annoyed with a. .
sprung axle or a twisted frame. On the McCormick Rake are wheels that
will stand tbe atrain of work on any kind of ground wherever it is desi:ed tc
operate a rake. A special two-inch carmel tire is fitted on the McCorraisk^
The spokes are set in a bracing position which m a in tiri ns 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 at 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 bay rake.
The .McCormick Rake teeth gather all the hay, doing clean work, quick
work and perfect work. The McCormick Hay Rakes are equipped with the
handiest and easiest dumping device found on any rake. So perfect is the
balance of the McCormick Rakes that the weight of the driver greatly ag
eists in dumping the hay.
