Well not to argue with our resident vintage hay rake guru but I will a bit this time. The haybines (or moco's) pretty much obsoleted all crimpers so you really do not see many of any manufacturer still left around now - most have went to the scrapper.

My guess for not seeing many of the Meyer units was not that they did not work well, but that it had more to do with the pick up assembly adding to the cost of the unit making it slightly more expensive than all other brands of crimpers that lacked the pick up assembly . Farmers back then almost always bought what was cheapest not what was best. (No better example of this than Allis Chalmers tractor sales in the 1950's based really only on being cheaper than all others. I do not think anyone would argue that Allis's were better although I do love Allis engines but the rest of the package well.....enough said on this tangent).
Please find me one post on any board "from someone who has actually used the Meyer" that it was not one fine crimper. I have not used one either, but the few user's that have posted all claim it to be the best crimper that they have ever used. Do not think you will find those same praising claims with the Cunningam's or any other brands for that matter.[u:c8fcf1ee4b][/u:c8fcf1ee4b]
