Cannot tell the make but Meyer (SP) was the first company to make that. They only were in the fields a couple of years before people got rid of the things and went back to the seperate mower and conditioner as they never worked as supposed to. Plugging all the time and you could not cut a square corner. I know where one is setting in a junk yard. Our neighbor bought one new and it was gone within 2 years because it was junk. No mater what you tried you could not make that backcut with the crimper part trying to run over the standing hay, you needed a mower to make that, then with the pickup it had and yes a tooth pickup it would not pickup up the hay laid on the first cut because it was running the wrong way. They would plug at every corner as you could not make a clead square corner. Years later my uncle was going to buy a conditioner and the dealer sold both New Holland and McCormick. He was going to go with the New Holland and dealer brought out for him to try the semi-mount version of that unit but as he only wanted the conditioner they did not put the cutter bar on. They hooked it to the WD Allis and the first thing they found out was that it had a mind of it's own and where it wanted to go it went, not where you wanted to go and it pluged something fierce. In less than 3 rounds it was gone never to be heard from again (think the company shipped it back just to get rid of it. They then brought out a McCormick conditioner and both my Uncle and Dad used that McCormick for years. With the seperate mower - conditioner hook up you would hook to the conditioner after you made the first round and those setup would cut a square corner without either plugging up. It's only value other than as scrap is showing what was a bad idea at tractor shows.
