Vertical Lift Mower*
' Thia is a machine the bar of which can be raised td a vertioal positions
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, m. .
vertical lift Mower is a necessity, and the only machine having this practical
feature ie 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 the~e 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 obstrue?
tion, throwing the Mower out of gear, and then lower the har afbaw&rd^.
throwing the machine ia gear automatically without loss of any time.
Where conditions require a machine for work in rough and broken landa-'
there is no Mower that will 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 ordiaary,Diachine cannot
be worked.
Like all other McCormick machines,'.McCormick Hay Bakes are built:
on honor. The demand for them has increased yearly with marvelous ra
pidity. For strong, solid and superb leakes the McCormick meets all the re
quirements of the agricultural worl i In material they are the beat, in con
struction they are the beet, and in finish they are the best. In the McCoimick.
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 Hake the necessary Btrength and rigidity. There is no -
danger of a purchaser of a McCormick Hay Rake being annoyed with &
sprung axle or a twisted frame. On the McCormick Rake are wheels that
will stand the strain of work on any kind of ground wherever it is desired tc
operate a rake. A special two-inch cannel tiro is fitted on the McCorasisk;
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 binges are securely riveted and.
will last for many years. Removable boxee in the wheels are notable feature?,
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 teethe
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, 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 tho
balance of the McCormick Rakes that the weight of the driver greatly as
sists in dumping the hay.
