McCormick Improved left-hand binder
5 and 6-foot cut
IT'S in tough cutting, in fields where the grain is tall, heavy, and filled with green undergrowth,
or in fields where the grain is short and thin in spots, that the McComiiek Improved binder
shows its superiority.
The wide range of adjustment of reel and i^latform, and the enormous capacity of the floatmg
elevator, account for the excellent work of the McConiuck in heav>' grain.
Its good work in extremelv short grain is due principally to the construction of the cutter bar.
The guards are almost on a level with the top of the ]latform can\-as. Short grain will fall upon the
platform canvas when cut instead of accumulating in front of the guards or jarnng down between
the guards and the platform canvas.
McConnick binders are made in 5, 6, 7
and 8-foot sizes, in right or left hand cuts, as
desired. One of these machines is sure to fit
the conditions on vour farm.

THE McCormick Improved 8-foot binder has the good features of the smaller McComiick
machines, and in addition, is equipped with an outside reel support and a tongue truck.
The outside reel support holds the reel perfectly rigid on the roughest kind of ground. The reel
slat cannot whip down and catch on the guards when the main wheel or grain wheel drops into a
dead furrow or ditch. The reel support prevents any sagging of the reel that might take place
after the binder has been in use for some time. The reel on the 8-foot machine can be raised and
lowered just as easily as the reel on the small machines.
The tongue truck regularly furnished with the 8-foot machine is a valuable addition to the
binder. It does away with tongue weight and side draft. It is a great aid in turning corners, and
gives the binder the advantage of that steady motion which is so essential to clean cutting.
The McCormick Improved 8-foot binder can be drawn either with horses or a tractor. It is a
practical machine to use with a tractor because of its simple tractor hitch, its ease of operation, and
its ability to harvest grain under all conditions.
The McCormick Improved 7-foot binder is regularly equipped with an outside reel support
similar to that used on the McCormick 8-foot binder.
THE McCormick main wheel is built on modem, scientific principles. It is a perfect unit. The
weight and strain it has to bear is resisted by the entire strength of the wheel. It is well lugged,
and distributes ample tractive power to the countershaft.
Both the main wheel and the grain wheel are fitted with
roller bearings. The bearings are held in cages, and can be
removed and replaced easily. These roller bearings have
much to do with the lightness of draft for which the
McCormick is so widely known.
litted wiLh ruller bearings
One of the reasons
why the McCormick
Improved binder is so
far famed for its dura-
liiilitv is that it is right at the foimdation. Upon the main
frame of a binder depends to a great extent the good work
of the entire machine. The main frame on the McCormick
Irinder is made entirely of steel, hot -riveted. It is trussed
and braced, like a bridge, in the places where the greatest
strain comes. This construction insures an absolute aUgn-
ment of all the gears and holds the countershaft firm and
true, thereby reducing friction to a minimurn.
Should the gears ever get out of mesh from constant wear,
The main wheel is lugged well for tractive power ^^^ adjustment is pro^dded on the countershaft which enables
the operator to bring the gears into proper mesh again. This adjustment is easily made with a wrench.
Making a rigid main frame for a binder is like laying a substantial foundation for a house-
it takes a little extra time and costs more, but it pays in the long run. , ^ , . ^ , ,^
Look well to the main frame of a binder when bujnng. It has a wonderful influence upon draft
and upon durability.
Durable Driving Mechanism
Power is transmitted to the various parts of the McCormick Improved binder in sucha manner
that there is an even distribution of motive force. This equalizes the strain on the vanous parts
of the frame making both the frame and the driving mechamsm exceptionally durable.
The pitman is diiven direct from the bevel gear, connecting the gear on the countershaft.
It drives the knife with a direct stroke.
A wood pitman is used. It is made of seasoned second growth hickory-. The wood pitman is
preferable because wood absorbs vibration. Another advantage of the wood pitman is that when
it strikes an obstacle it will not bend and throw the knife out of ahgnment.

THE platfonn frame of the McConnick Improved binder
is made almost entirely of steel. It is reinforced
strongly with cross sills to withstand the hard knocks of the
harvest field. The one-piece steel platform bottom is riveted
to a Z shaped sill underneath. The platfonn bottom
is fastened in such a way that the sills and
braces receive the greater part of
The steel main frame and steel platform make the strongest
possible foundation for a binder
Knife Easily Removed
A feature of importance on the
McCormick Improved binder is the
ease with which the pitman can be
connected and disconnected from the
knife. There are no bolts or nuts to
loosen. The operation is accomplished
by pushing down the latch, and releas-
ing the pitman at the wrist end. The
pitman can be removed from the wrist
pin, and by pulling the knife head con-
nection past the sliield, the pitman can
The connection at the knife head and pitman is protected by a steel shield be removed from the knife. This
feature saves considerable time in
removing the knife. A shield is provided which protects the knife head from dust and trash, thus
preventing wear and saving power.
Strong Drive Chain
The main drive chain of a binder must transmit power for the entire machine from the main
wheel to the countershaft. The countershaft drives the bevel gears, which in turn transmit power
to drive the knife, reel, elevator, and binding attachment. To do this well, day in and day out, the
chain must be exceptionally strong and flexible. It shoidd be made of material that will wear well
and still not cause undue friction on the
The McCormick main drive chain
is made of high grade malleable iron
links with steel connecting pins. This
gives the chain unusual strength and
excellent wearing qualities, and causes
the minimum wear on the sprockets.
An adjustable spring tightener, which
works automatically, keeps the main
chain at the proper tension for good work.

Wide Range of Reel Adjustment
ALMOST any binder w ill give fairly good service
. when the grain is standing and conditions are
right, but when it comes to cutting extremely short
grain or grain that is down, tangled, and lodged, the
binder must have a reel with a wide range of adjust-
mcnt and one that is exceptionally rigid.
The reel on the RIcCormick binder can be ad-
justed very close to the guards so that the operator
can force short grain, or grain that is lodged and
tangled, onto the platform canvas. There is never
any accimiulation of grain on front of the cutter
bar. No matter how badly the grain is down, the
McConiiick binder picks it up and binds it all.
There is an outside reel support on the McCor-
Long reel bearing holds the reel rigid
mick Improved 7 and 8-foot binders. This
support makes it impossible for the reel slats
to whip down on the guards when cutting on
rough ground. This feature gives the operator
the advantage of adjusting his reel close to the
guards when cutting short grain. The inner
end of the reel shaft is provided with a conven-

ient device for keeping the reel in perfect align-
ment with the guards.
Long Reel Bearing
The McConnick reel is fastened both to
the tubular steel brace which supports the seat
and braces the elevator, and to the front of
the elevator frame. This construction insvires
a rigid reel base.
The bearing on the McComiick reel shaft
is long. This insures durabilit}-, and practically
eliminates sag. Should the reel ever incline,
due to long wear or accident in the field, the
McCormick has a simple adjustment to take
up the sag.
The McConnick reel is tmusually strong
and effective. It will handle tall, short, dowTi
or tangled grain by merely shifting the levers
which are within convenient reach of the
operator. By means of these levers the reel
adverse field conditions.
THE AlcCormick Improved binder
has an elevator that floats at
four points. This means that if the
grain is thick, tangled, or matted, the
elevator will expand to allow the in-
creased volume to pass through, an tl
then drop back to its original position
for short, thin grain. There are no
changes or adjustments to make.
The movement is entirely automatic.
This feature insures perfect elevation
of the grain under all conditions, and
prevents unnecessary wear of the can-
vas. The floating elevator has gained
for the McComiick Improved binder
a reputation for large capacity and

Easy to Tighten Canvas
It is easy to adjust the elevator convases on the McCormick. This
is done by turning up the lower rollers which are connected on hinged
boxes The platfonn apron is held in perfect tension by means of
an automatic spring tightener. In order to remove or loosen the
canvas it is nec-
essary only to
turn the hand
lever which con-
trols the spring
adjustment. The canvas tighteners make it unnecessary
to remove the canvases when the
machine is not in use.

Roller bearings with which the ele-
vator rolls are equipped make an easy-
running and noiseless elevator arrange-
ment. There is no binding of the

It also makes shocking easy.
Another feature of impor-
tance on the McCormick binding
attachment is the range of adjust-
ment that can be made on the trip
hook for different sizes of bundles. This feature makes it possible to have large bundles when the
grain is ripe and in good condition, or small bundles can be bound when the grain is filled with
The roller tmne tension used on the McCormick Improved binder consists of two corrugated
rollers, held together in the frame by a spring. The spring pennits the twine to be drawn between
the rollers with uniform tension. This tension has much to do with accurate tying of the McCormick.
It straightens out all ciu-ls and kinks in the twine.
Grain Delivered to the Knotter Without Threshing
The packers and the vibrating butt ad-
juster run at the same speed. This dehvers
the grain to the knotter uniformly and with-
out unnecessary threshing of the heads. The
butts and the heads of the grain are pulled
down at the same time and at the same rate
The packers are so timed that one of
them precedes the needle in starting to form
the bundle. This takes much of the strain off
the needle and gives it the advantage of
motion before starting to do its work. It also
means lighter draft.
One of the packers raises the grain over
the point of the needle, which prevents clog-
ging at this point. It is absolutely impossible
for grain to catch on point of the needle on
the McCormick binder.

The needle used on the McCormick Improved
binder has special hardened steel surfaces inserted
to insure a smooth-running surface for the twine.
These hardened parts withstand the continual wear
of the twine for a long time. After several years of
work, these hardened steel rolls may be reversed
easily or replaced, and the needle will be as good
The McCormick knotter is the last word in
simplicity. It has only two moving parts — the bill
hook and the twine disk. These two parts work in
a substantial and accurately constructed frame. In
tying a Imot the twine is fed toward the bill hook by the twine holder. This relieves
the strain on the twine and eliminates the danger of the twine pulling out of the twine
holder or brealdng when tying a Imot. This action reduces wear on the driving pinion.
Another feature of importance on the McCormick knotter is that it does not require as close
an adjustment in order to tie effectively as other knotters. This is due to the great amount of
surface on the cord holder which is in contact with the twine. The advantage of this to a fanner
is that if it should ever become necessary to adjust the knotter it can be done without making as
close an adjustment as it is necessary to make on other machiiies.
Every McCormick knotter is tested thoroughly before being shipped. This fact together
with the simple construction accounts
for the excellent work of the McCor-
mick knotter in the field.
Easy to Oil
AU the working parts of the
McCormick Improved binder are
accessible to the operator for oiling.
The oil holes are placed within easy
reach of the operator so the binder
can be kept well oiled at all times.
A feature of this machine is the
ease with which the operator can oil
the packer shaft bearings. This is
done tty removing the center board in
the deck, as shown in the illustration.
This feature also permits easy access

A TONGUE truck, especially if it is a good one, is a great
convenience and a saver of horse flesh. The McConnick
binder tongue truck is built substantially and meets all field
conditions successfully. It does away with tongue weight,
whipping of the pole and side draft.
The wheels on this tongue truck ha^•e a deep side flange.
This feature in connection with the adjustment, which allows
the wheels to be set at any desired angle, relieves the horses
of all side draft and gives the binder a smooth steady motion
The McCormick tongue truck is furnished regularly with
the McCormick Improved 8-foot binder. It can be supplied
with the 5, 6, and 7-foot ma-
chines on special order at addi-
tional cost. The short stub
pole and all the parts necessary
to attach the tongue truck to
the binder are furnished regu-
larly when the attachment is ordered.
The holes in the pole are properly bored
and adjustments are made to make it easy
to fit the tongue truck to the binder when
it is ordered as a separate attachment.

McCormick Bundle Carrier
The McCormick bundle carrier is simple, light and accurate. It is controlled by means of a
convenient foot trip. When tripped the carrier drops down and the bundles slide gently to the
ground in rows. The earner is so constructed that if it comes in contact with a tree, fence, or
any other obstacle, it will swing out of the way automatically. When the obstruction is passed, it
will swing back to its original position. It folds compactly for transportation.
The McConnick tongue truck inakes it easy to turn comers

The inside and outside dividers fold for transportation
It requires oiily a very short time and little effort to prepare the McCormick Improved binder
for transportation over the road or from one field to another. The inside and outside dividers
can be folded, as shown in the illustration.
The tongue can be removed by releasing two spring latches. There are no nuts to unscrew
and no bolts to remove. All that it is necessary to do to mount the McConnick Improved binder
on transport trucks is to raise the machine, put on the truck wheels, and change the position of
the tongue. The binder is raised easily by means of the main wheel and the grain wheel raising
and lowering device.
The whole operation requires only a few minutes. The transport wheels are fitted with
stub axles w hich fit into the main frame of the binder when it is to be transported.
When mounted on transport trucks, the McCormick can be moved thiough narrow lanes and roadways
The McCormick header, furnished in 10, 12, and 14-foot sizes
THE McCormick header is designed for the man who has> large fields and wishes to cut and
deliver the grain to the wagon without tying it in bundles. It operates with the minimum
amount of power.
The McCormick header has features that recommend themselves to the respective purchasers
— a tubular steel main frame, strong and securely braced; convenient leveling device enabling the
operator to raise, lower and level the platform; a dtirable platform, having a sheet steel bottom;
reversible sprocket, permitting two speeds on the reel; convenient device for adjusting platform
apron; direct dri\'ing mechanism, which increases the durability and insures light draft. All
these features make the McCormick a desirable machine.
The guards are fastened to a Z-shaped cutter bar. This brings the knife almost on a level
with the platform apron — a construction that is especially valuable in fields where the straw is short
because there is no projecting part on which the grain can catch and fall from the platform.
The reel works close to the guards so that all the grain is forced upon the platfonn canvas.
Roller bearings are placed on all moving parts where it is practical to use them. The other prin-
cipal moving parts ax-e equipped with self-aligning bearings. This reduces the draft of the machine
and increases its durability-

McCormick Daisy Reaper
THE McComiick Daisy reaper is designed to
meet the reqiiirenients of those who prefer to
leave the grain in gavels on the ground vmtil it is
thoroughly cured and dried. This machine is in
great demand for use on small f anns or where a man
wishes to cut timothy or clover for seed. It can also
be used with success in cutting wheat, flax, buck-
wheat, rye and barley. The main and grain wheels
are fitted with self -aligning roller bearings; conse-
quently, the machine is light in draft and can be
drawn with two horses.
The McCormick Daisy reaper is driven by bevel
gears. This method of transmitting power elimin-
ates lost motion and reduces draft. The gears of
the Daisy reaper are heavy and will give long wear-
ing sen.'ice. The rake arms can be regulated to
deliver gavels of any size.
McCormick Daisy folded for transportation
This reaper can be folded easily when
it is to be moved from one field to another,
when passing through narrow lanes or
when it is desired to store it in a limited
space. It can be adjusted to cut high
or low stubble according to the condition
of the field and grain. The raising and
lowering device consists of a combina-
tion worm and bevel gear — something
like a jack screw which is the most
powerful lifting device known.

New 4 Mower
McCormick New 4 mower,
regular lift — 4Vi> and
THE McComiick New 4 mower is known for its simplicity and durability wherever hay is
grown. Simplicity is the keynote in its construction.
There are several good reasons why the experienced farmer selects a mowing machine that is
simple in construction. The more simple the mower is the easier it will work. The fewer fancy
trappings it has the less likely it is to get out of order. The McCormick does not have a number of
so-called talking points to attract the prospective purchaser on the sales floor and disappoint him
later, when the machine is put to work in the hay field. It has fewer parts than any other mower.
To do good work for any length of time a mower must have a well constructed and substantial
main frame. The main frame holds the shafts, gears, pinions, etc., in the proper working relation.
If the main frame did not remain perfectly rigid, the gears and shafts would be thrown out of
alignment, causing heavy draft and undue wear.
The frame on the McCormick mower is cast in one piece. It is strongly braced. It wiU
withstand the most adverse conditions in the field.
All the holes in the main frame are drilled at the same S^L
time in special machines to insure JW^ **
absolute accuracy in the fitting
of the crankshaft and counter-
shaft. The main axle is equipped
with roller bearings. The crank-
shaft and the countershaft run in remova-
ble steel babbitt-lined boxes. These boxes
are of softer material than the crank
shaft, consequently the boxes, instead of
the crank shaft, receive the wear.
Substantial main frame

A guard that will stand hard
knocks in the field
THE McCormick cutter bar is built to stand hard knocks. It is right
all through. It is constructed entirely of steel. A special heat
treatment makes it extra rigid. It is reinforced with a taper rib which
extends the entire length of the bar. This rib strengthens the bar so that
a smooth running knife is insured. There is no danger of whipping the
bar out of alignment when raising or lowering it quickly.
The McCormick pitman and knife
are always in a direct line, regardless
of the position of the bar. This means
that the knife works in the middle of
the guards always.
The cutter bar does not sag, no
matter whether the guards are tilted
up or down. This insures an easy
running knife, reduces friction to the
minimum, and prevents the breaking
of knife heads.
Notice the substantial connection between
The cutter bar is connected to the the cutter bar and main frame
main frame by a hinged coupling mounted on a long horizontal bearing. This coupling is made
of steel and forced into one piece. The substantial construction of this coupling has much to do
with holding the McConnick cutter bar in perfect alignment.
Short prairie grass or wire grass has a tendency in cutting to clog between the knife section and the
rear of the guard on some mowers, particularly after the knife has become worn. This is not the
case with the McCormick. There is a clean cutting surface the entire length of the ledger plate.
This ledger plate is fastened to the guard by means of a rivet and a center lug, which always holds
it substantially in place. The section and the ledger plate make a sheer cut that is very effective
no matter what the condition of cutting. After the ledger plate has been worn for some time it
can be replaced. This does away with the necessity of buying an entirely new guard.

Convenient Foot Lift
BY means of a convenient foot lever, the cutter bar of the McCormick mower can
easily to pass over stones, stumps, and roots, and for turning comers. Both the
the outer shoes of the cutter bar are
raised at one time. For this reason the
cutter bar is always in perfect alignment
regardless of the position of tilt.
Another advantage of the inner and outer
shoes raising together is that all strain is
removed from the cutter bar when tilting.
Oil cannot splash out of the McCormick pitman box
The cutter bar can also be raised easily by means of
a hand lever which is within easy reach of the driver.
Close Tilting Adjustments
The tilting quadrant on the
McCormick mower is made with
fine notches. This gives the operator
close control of the tilt of the cutter bar.
It means that a very close stubble can
be cut if desired, and in seasons when
the grass is short it has been known to
make a difference of several tons in the
A foot lift makes it easy to raise the McCormick cutter bar
hay crop. Close tilting adjustment is a particularly
desirable feature on rough and stony ground. Close
cutting can be done without danger of dulling the
knives on rocks, or of breaking the bar by running into
short stumps that the driver cannot see from the seat.
A feature of the McCormick mower that will appeal
to every farmer is the fact that there is ample room
between the pole and the inside shoe. This makes it un-
necessary for the off horse to walk in the grass when a
full swath is being cut.
Large Bevel Gears
THE large bevel gears of the McCormick mower are a noteworthy feature. The bevel gear and
spur pinion are mounted on the countershaft, which runs in a removable bushing. For this
reason the gears run smoothly and without noise. These gears are well covered with large shields,
which protect them from all dust and dirt. The oiling facilities throughout the entire mower are
easily accessible. Wherever
possible they are placed within
plain sight of the operator and
can be reached while standing
back of the machine.
The clutch on the AlcCor-
niiek mower is equipped with
four clutch dogs. These clogs
engage and release quickly.
The mower can be stopped
and started in heavy cutting
without backing the team.

furnished with 43^, .5, 6 or 7-foot cutter bars.
This mower is of the same design and
built of the same high-grade material as
the McCormick New 4 mower, the only
difference being that it is furnished in

THE McCormick vertical lift mower has all the good features of the regular McCormick mowers,
and, in addition, it is so made that the cutter bar can be raised to a vertical position and low-
ered without stopping the team. This makes the McComiick vertical lift mower one that is meeting
great demand for cutting on rough and stumpy ground. It permits the driver to cut close to the
tree, stump, or rock, and save all the hay without loss of time or inconvenience. The cutter bar
also can be raised high enough to pass over stones and stumps by means of a very convenient foot
While the McConnick vertical lift mower is an exceptionally good machine for cutting in
rough and stony ground, it is practical for all kinds of grass cutting. It will do good work in any
place where the machine can be drawn by horses and under conditions where an ordinary machine
could not be used. As an all-purpose mower it is unsurpassed.
The cutter bar on this mower is especially strong and durable. It undergoes a special heat
treatment, which makes the bar unusually rigid. There is no danger of it whipping out of align-
ment when it is raised and lowered. This is a feature that is of great advantage on the vertical lift
mower, because when it is used on stony or stumpy ground the bar is being raised or lowered con-
The lifting lever on the McCormick vertical lift mower and the connections of the cutter bar
have a powerful leverage, making it easy to raise the cutter bar to a vertical position. The lift is
positive, so that the bar comes to a perpendicular position, not part way up.
This machine is automatically thrown out of gear as the bar is raised. It is thrown in gear
again when the bar returns to the ground. This is a very convenient feature, and one that every
user will appreciate.
McCormick New Little Vertical mower is furnished
with 3^5 or 4-foot cutter bar
THE McComiick New Little Vertical mower has been designed to meet the demands for a
mower of small capacity that can be pulled by one horse. It is a practical mower for small
acreage and for mowing lawns, parks and orchards. It can be operated in places where a large
two-horse mower could not go.
This mower is equipped with a vertical lift, which enables the operator to raise the cutter bar
to a vertical position while the machine is in motion. This lift is similar in every way to that used
on the two-horse vertical lift mower. The singletree on the New Little Vertical mower is connected
to the draft rod in such a way as to give an even distribu-
tion of power between the machine and the shoe hinge.
The thills can be shifted to the center and two horses
hitched to the machine if desired.
The general construction of the McCormick New Little
Vertical mower is the same as that of the McCormick two-
horse mower. Great care is taken that all the parts be built
in the same careful manner and of the same high-grade
material as the larger machines.
McCormick Knife and Tool Grinder
The McCormick knife and tool grinder enables the
farmer to keep sections and knives sharp at all times. The
time required to sharpen knives with a McCormick knife
grinder is less than when an ordinary grindstone is used.
Stone for gumming saws can also be furnished on special
order. If desired, a foot power attachment can be supplied at a small additional cost.
Unless the knives are kept sharp it is impossible to secure the best results with a mowing
machine. When the knife is dull the draft of the machine is increased, and the driver often thinks
that the mower is at fault. By keeping the mower knives weU sharpened these difficulties can be

McCormick Hay Tedder
McCormick hay tedder-supplied with 6 or 8 forks
THE best hay is made where the grass does not lay in the swath long after it is cut. There
should be a free circulation of air through it, but it should not bleach in the sun. ^ If it is
gathered up quickly it will retain its rich green color and be much more valuable for feeding. It
follows that it will bring a better price on the market.
With the use of the jNIcCormick hay tedder, grass can be cut in the morning, turned Ijy the
tedder later in the day and put in the bam or stack on the same day, making a great saving of
time over the usual methods employed. All the hay is stirred when the McCormick tedder is
used. Light or heavy crops can be tedded with equal rapidity and the hay will be cured unifomily.
The wheels, frame and forks of the McConnick tedder are made of steel, which insures a sub-
stantial construction. The machine is driven by a chain and gears. The gear wheel is mounted in
the center of the axle and drives the crank shaft to which the fork arms are attached. All the
forks are thus given the full driving force of both wheels and the motion of the forks is steady and
unifonn — the heaviest hay will not retard them. Each fork arm is equipped with_a coil spring.
This spring takes the jar from the forks and protects the machine from the alternating movement
of the fork anns.
The McCormick tedder is so constructed that heavy windrows can be tedded -without dif-
ficulty — none of the hay is left unstirred. The forks extend outside of the wheels so that they
stir the hay that is run over by the wheels. The forks continue in motion when comers are being
turned. By means of a convenient lever within reach of the driver the forks can be regulated
to work high or low as desired.
The IMcComiick tedder often will pay for itself in one season by the better grade of hay which
it helps to make. If the season is rainy, a tedder is indispensable. It scatters the hay lightly so
that it win dry out very quickly.

The McCormick Self- Dump Rake
McCormick self-dump rake. The thills can be moved to the center for two horses if desired
The McConnick self-dump rake does good work in all conditions of hay. It dumps quickly
and the teeth return to the ground close to the windrow. As the rake fills, the cleaner rods float
above and retard the hay, so that it does not roll into a ropy fonn.
McCormick rakes leave a neat appearing field, due to the ease vnth. which the teeth can be
kept in position. The teeth can be adjusted to work on or off the ground, as the operator desires,
or they can be locked down by a slight pressure on the foot lever so that the hay can be bunched
from the windrow. In order to dump the rake the driver simply presses a trip lever, which throws
the pawls at the end of the trip rod into engagement with the ratchets. The teeth then lift and
discharge the load.
The dump rods on the McCormick rake are in two parts and can be reversed end for end.
This gives double wearing surface. The ends of the rods that engage in the ratchets are temper-
ed, furnishing added durability.
The wheels on the McConnick rake are interchangeable, so that when one side of the ratchets
are worn the wheels can be changed. This gives practically the wear of two rake wheels in one.
The wheels have staggered spokes and heavy steel tires. They are large and keep the rake run-
ning smoothly even when used on the roughest ground. The inside ratchets are covered with
shields which prevent the hay from winding or interfering with the tripping device.
Strong Main Frame
The McCormick rake has a strong frame
THE good work and lasting quality of a hay rake depend to a large extent upon the material
that is put into the main frame'. The main frame of the McCormick hay rake is made of
angle steel, which resists twisting. The rake head is made of angle steel, strongly trussed to
prevent sagging. The frame and rake head are connected by heavy hinges. This construction
produces a frame which will withstand for many years the twists and strains to which it is sub-
jected in the field.
Durable Rake Teeth
The rake teeth are made of high-grade oil tempered steel.
They must undergo a severe test before they leave the factory.
A pull of 29 inches, almost 2i'-2 feet, is put on the point of
every McComiick rake tooth, and it must spring back to_ its
exact original shape. A tooth that has the stuff in it to with-
stand this treatment will not break when it catches on large
stones, stumps or roots. It will straighten out to pass over
the obstruction and then spring back to place.
The teeth are held in place by sectional clamps. The ad-
vantage of this is that should a tooth become worn or broken
it can be replaced by taking off only a few teeth in the rake.
The McCormick teeth have a graceful cur^-e which brings
them well mider the load
where they carry it rather
than drag it along. They are
so shaped on the end that they
ride over the ground instead
of digging or tearing it up.
The frame and rake head are strongly
The foot trip and locking lever are within easy reach
of the operator
Meets All Conditions Successfully
The McCormick hay rake meets all re-
quirements of the most critical farmer. It
has gained a reputation in every locahty
for its durability and ease of operation.
The McCormick hand dump rake is
similar to the self dump rake with the excep-
tion of the tripping device. It is made in
the same sizes.
McCormick rakes are made in 8, 9, 10
and 12-foot sizes.
McCormick Sweep Rakes
McCormick 3-wheel, side-hitch sweep rake No. 2
WHEN hay is stacked in the field, the most economical equipment for handling it is the
McCormick sweep rakes and stackers. No other method equals this in the saving of time
and labor. Sweep rakes as a rule, are subjected to a great deal of hard usage and severe strains,
so it is essential that the right kind of materials be used in a right way to insure great strength.
A careful examination of the McCormick line will convince anyone that these tools are built to
stand the hardest kind of treatment. Plenty of material of the best kind has been used in con-
structing them and they are thoroughly braced throughout.
McCormick Sweep rakes will gather hay from either the swath or windrow and are made in a
number of styles so that every field condition can be met. Rakes Nos. 1 and 5 are of the 2-wheel,
side-hitch type. The teeth are raised and lowered by sliding the seat back and forth. Nos. 2 and
6 are of the 3-wheel type. Nos. 3 and 7 are 3-wheel, and Nos. 4 and 8, 4-wheel, rear-hitch. All
rakes, except Nos. 1 and 5, have a lever for raising and lowering the teeth.
The McCormick sweep rake teeth are made of straight-grained yellow pine, and are provided
with metal points. They are interchangeable and reversible. These features reduce wear and
insure durability. The metal wheels are mounted on a square tubular steel axle which extends across
the platfonn, on rakes Nos. 1, 2, 3 and 4. On rakes Nos. 5, 6, 7 and 8, the axles are wood with the
wheels mounted on short steel shafts which are held securely in place by braces. The wheels on
rakes Nos. 5, 6, 7 and 8 are equipped with removable bushings and provided_with shields so that
hay will not wrap around the axle. Rakes Nos. 5 and 6 are equipped with floating poles.

McCormick Junior Hay Stacker
McCormick junior hay stacker
^HIS stacker is known as the "over-
shot" type, and consists cf a
ground frame and A-frame, also lifting
arms which carry the platfonn or
pitcher head. The load is carried up
on this stacker over the A-frame with-
out sagging the platform and is thrown
directly back upon the stack. The
platform is held in position by a heavy
rope. A coiled spring device is pro-
vided, which may be adjusted by the
operator to give the desired pitch to
the platform in delivering the load to
teeth can be
and the height
of the lifting
arms can be reduced and increased. This is a feature that is readily appreciated, because in mak-
ing a stack the operator can begin by having the lifting anns at the lowest point, and as the stack
is built up, the arms may be extended.
This stacker can be operated with either one or two horses. When folded it can easily be trans-
ported and takes up very little room. A hay retainer and transport are furnished on special order
at additional cost.
McCormick Swinging Hay Stacker
The McCormick swinging hay stacker permits the load to be locked in place at any height,
and swung to one siide over the stack. When over the stack the load may be dumped and the forks
swung back and lowered into place. These stackers are very handy, as they can be used to load into,
a wagon. They are strongly laraced and twisting is prevented by truss rods.
The swinging stacker is especially adapted for building long
stacks because it has long swinging arms. When the load is placed
upon the pitcher head, the horse is driven forward until the load
has been lifted to the desired height ; the load is then swung over
the stack, and dumped by means of a lever. When being lowered,
the pitcher head can be controlled by means of a band brake
which is attached to the pulley, around which the raising and
lowering rope passes.
A sledge and stakes
are furnished with
each stacker. A trans-
port and hay retainer

The McCormick Corn Binder
for a Special
Corn Machine Catalogue
' I ^HE McCormick com binder is simple in constniction, light in weight, and compact. The main
-'- frame, which is made of square steel tubes, is symmetrical in design, and thoroughly braced
in such a manner as to give almost unlimited service. All parts are held rigid, consequently the
shafts and boxes are held in perfect alignment.
The McCormick com binder binds the com while the com is in a vertical position. The com
is cut and moved in a position upright to the binding attachment. It requires a minimum amount
of power to bind com in this position and insures evenly butted bundles which are easy to handle.
Another feature that every com grower will appreciate is the fact that this machine straddles
only one row of com in opening up the field. It leaves only one bent row to cut.
The McCormick com binder has an extremely wide range of adjustment. It will cut short and
tall com, and corn that is down and lodged. This adjustment for different lengths of com can be
made from the driver's seat. It is not necessary for the dri\'er to stop the machine to make the
adjustment. This is a decided advantage, because
frequently the operator finds both tall and short com
in the same field.
The cutting mechanism on the McCormick com
binder consists of three knives, one reciprocating and
two stationary. The stationary knives being curved
outwardly, from the rear, cause them to cut the stalks
with a gradual drawing stroke as the machine is drawn
forward. The reciprocating knife completes the oper-
ation, and cuts all weeds, vines, and green undergrowth
between the hills of the row, leaving the field in a
Sectional view sliowing the knives neat condition.
THERE are three sets of conveyor chains on the
McCormick com binder. Each set of conveyors
comprises two chains — one being placed on each side
of the divider on the inside. These chains are so
geared that the upper chains move faster than the
lower ones. In this way the bent stalks are readily
straightened up. The faster motion of the upper
chains carry the top portion of the com back be-
tween the dividers so that the stalks are perpen-
dicular when they are cut. They are, therefore,
conveyed to the binding attachment in an upright
It is an easy matter to tighten the conveyor chains
Two Spring Rods Hold Com
Another feature that adds greatly to the satisfactory work
of the McCormick corn binder and insures positive elevation of
all corn stalks is the spring rod feature. There are two spring
rods so constmcted that they hold the stalks against the chain
until the com gets to a point where the packers are sure to get
hold of the stalks. This insures positive elevation of all the com.
A tongue tmck is fumished with the McCormick com
binder on special order at additional cost. A stub pole and
all parts necessary to attach it to the com binder are fumished
regularly when the attachment is ordered. The holes in the pole
are properly bored and adjustments are made to make it easy
to attach the tongue tmck when it is
ordered as a separate attachment. When

McCormick Improved Huskers and Shredders
These shredders are built in two sizes— Improved
6-roll and Improved 8-roll. The Improved 8-roll
is furnished with "Farmers Friend" blower.
McCormick Improved 6-roll busker and shredder.
THE McCormick Improved husker and shredder has many features that make it durable and
easily operated. The frame is strong and well braced. It is equipped with a practical self-
feeder. A ball-and-socket joint fifth wheel pennits the machine to be turned around in a small
space. Snapping rolls are hung on a cushion spring, which prevent the ends from pounding. A
hand wheel attachment makes it possible to turn the blower pipe in any direction while the machine
is in operation.
The quality of the work done by the McCormick husker and sliredder cannot be equaled. The
separating device is so constructed that aU foreign substances, such as dirt, smut, weed seeds, etc.,
are delivered to the ground and not to the bam with the stover. It cleans and saves all the shelled
com and delivers it to a bag at the side of the machine.
All parts of this machine are readily accessible. The husking rolls are arranged in pairs and
placed parallel with the length of the machine and have large bevel gears wliich remain in inesh.
Each pair of rolls can be taken out independently of the others.
McComiick huskers and shredders are well equipped with safety devices. The oil cups have
long pipes, so that the oiling can be done without going near the moving parts. The husking and
snapping rolls are protected, and gear shields are used where necessary. Safety clutches are pro-
vided for throwing the snapping rolls and self-feeder out of gear.
The speed of the shredder head is about 1,000 revolutions per minute. The quality of corn,
weather conditions, etc., determine to a great extent the amount of com that can be husked in a
day. Under favorable conditions, however, the 6-roU machine will husk from 50 to 75 bushels per
hour; the 8-roll from 80 to 100 bushels per hour. The 6-roll requires a 20-H.P. engine for operation;
the 8-roll about a 25-H.P.

McCormick 8 and 10-Roll Special Huskers and Shredders
THE McCormick 8-roll Special husker and shredder is the same machine as the Improved 6-roll,
except that it is equipped with eight small rolls instead of six large ones. The capacity of the
8-roll Special is no greater than that of the Improved 6-roll, but the rolls being small make it very
effective in small com. It does exceptionally clean husldng, and shells very little com in the oper-
ation. The reason that this machine is a desirable one for small corn is that the extra pair of rolls
give it a larger husking surface; but the small rolls are not as aggressive as large rolls, consequently
the same amount of corn is handled, with very little of the corn shelled.
The McConnick 10-roll Special husker and shredder has ten small rolls instead of eight large
ones. The capacity and other features of this machine are exactly the same as found on the Im-
proved 8-roll. The advantages of the 10-roll Special are the same as those mentioned for the Mc-
Cormick 8-roll Special.
The equipment and required power for operation is the same on the McConnick 8-roll Special
as on the McCormick Improved 6-roll. The 10-roll vSpecial requires the same power and has the
same equipment as the Improved 8-roll.

McCormick Little Giant Husker and Shredder
HE McConnick Little Giant husker and shredder
is designed for individual work, or for those who
wish to do custom work on a small scale. It can be
furnished with 4 or 6 husking rolls.
The husking rolls on the McCormick Little Giant
are placed at right angles with the machine. They are
arranged in pairs and are readily accessible. Each
pair can be taken out independently of the other and
the rolls can be quickly adjusted. The ear elevator
operates from the side of the machine.
A reciprocator keeps the ears mo\ang along the
rolls evenly. This insures clean husking and a uniform
deHvery of the ears to the carrier. The reciprocator
keeps the ears moving no matter what condition the
com may be in.
The Little Giant husker and shredder makes per-
fect fodder and saves all the com. The capacity is
sufficiently large to turn out a good day's work without
requiring a large number of men and teams to keep it
in operation. It is the most practical machine for the
man whose power is limited.
The Little Giant is regtdarly equipped with an 8-inch drive pulley. On
special order a 6, 7, 9 or 10-inch drive pulley will be supplied. The speed of
the shredder head is about 1,000 revolutions per minute. Under average con-
ditions the 4-roll machine vn]l husk from 25 to 50 bushels per hour;
the 6-roll will husk from 30 to 60 bushels per hour. It requires
from 12 to 15-H. P- to operate the Little Giant to its full capacity.

McCormick Corn Picker
THE working principle of the McConnick
com picker is very simple. It consists
of long, projecting gatherers. These gatherers
are equipped with elevating chains. The
chains are provided with long steel fingers
which catch and hold the com after the steel
gatherer points have raised it from the ground.
By means of the operating lever, these gatherer.;
can be easily adjusted for working close to the
ground. Under ordinary conditions, however,
it is unnecessary to operate the machine with
the gatherers adjusted extremely low.
The McConnick corn picker will not only
meet all field conditions successfully, but it will
husk com cleaner than it is usually done by
hand. Draft is reduced by means of roller and
self -aligning bearings, and by the proper ar-
rangement of parts.
On this macliine are found many desirable
features which are readily appreciated by the
farmer who uses it. The snapping rolls are
