Miniature Working Replica Of 1936 Stationary Hay Baler
We demonstrated this miniature working replica of a 1936 stationary hay baler at the Sunbelt Expo last fall near Moultrie, Ga. It produces miniature bales of hay or straw that measure 4 in. wide, 5 in. high, and 9 in. long. The baler itself is 62 in. long by 18 in. high and weighs 110 lbs. It's powered by a modified 1939 John Deere pedal tractor which is equipped with a small gas engine. Both the tractor and baler were built by Clifford Stone of Benton, Tenn. He's in his late 70's and built the baler from memory. As a child growing up on the farm one of his chores was to help bale hay with his father's stationary baler. (Patsi Barker, 233 Co.
