Saw an ancient haying and bundling machine at a Fair last year. Amazing. And it still worked. It had some movin' parts too.
The Dain Hay Press is interesting to watch run because of the large off center gear that runs the donkey head. I've worked with a restored Dain Hay Press owned by the SD Ag Heritage Museum. It is in running condition. To see a video of it running go to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UO2ErPdu7fU

That pink IH B tractor belongs to three sisters. It was their grandfather's tractor. Note the long eyelashes over the headlights! Delighted the ladies are involved.Dain Mfg. Co. invented and made hay presses from 1908 to the early 1930s. The Ag Museum's example is from 1915. Watch the You Tube video by clicking on the URL in my answer to Birdman.

You get to watch over eight minutes of the restored 1915 Dain Hay Press. It took the efforts of six of us to bail the straw produced by a thrashing machine.
Hah! You find the most amazing things.
A pink tractor, that's not possible...!Cute!!!
