Recommended Posts

Attempting to beat their world record again with amount of working single chop harvesters but also looking for some rare modles in the history of sileage harvesting.Can anyone help them?

The next machine we still need to find, unfortunately a very rare machine. The first Single Pass machine built by John Wilder LTD of Reading UK in 1935, called the CutLift. it was effectively a redesigned greencrop loader with a finger bar mower, at first was ground driven from 1935 but later updated to PTO powered by the mid 40′s

It was featured in a short Film promoted by the Northern Ireland Office to encourage farmers to produce silage durding the war times, the film is entitled Simple Silage & was filmed on Prospect farm in 1942, only 3 miles from Stormont. The film can be accessed in the digital archives of Northern Ireland museums

The closest we’ve come to finding one is the badge plate and pto knuckle from one
