MOWERS AND BINDERS represent a substantial
investment on farms in practically every section
of the country. These machines lend themselves
readily to repair or reconditioning for additional
service, as, in the main, they are the assembly of
many different replaceable parts or units. Undoubtedly
machines are constantly being discarded though
still capable of additional useful performance if
reasonable repairs or replacements were made.
A machine kept in good repair and in proper
adjustment will last longer and do better work than
one which is not. Also the former is less likely to
cause costly delay at harvest due to machine failure.
This bulletin contains information intended to aid
the farmer in making needed repairs and adjustments
and thus expedite harvesting operations.
Because of the large number of makes and models
of mowers and binders it is obviously necessary to
limit the scope of the bulletin to general information
applicable to all machines in common use.
The degree to which a machine may be farm reconditioned
depends, among other things, upon
available shop equipment. It is not the intention
here to encourage farm repair work beyond the
possibilities of farm shop facilities or of the ability
of the operator. Expert labor or assistance should
be employed when there is doubt whether a job can
be well done with home equipment.
This bulletin is a revision of and supersedes Farmers'
Bulletin 947, Mowers, Reapers, and Binders.
