An interesting question about a 45T and a 46. This is what I remember about a 45 baler, about 1946 or 47. I was about 10 at the time.
I grew up rite across the road from an I H C exp. farm west of Chicago. The company brought out the first 45 made , an expermental model and put it to work baling and finding what was good and bad about it.When they got their hay baled the company guys brought it over to our place to bale our hay. The idea was to get a lot of time on it and find the "weak" spots. Well there were some spots , the knotters were very troublesome, tying when they felt like it! That baler was at dads place for a few weeks with the engineers and designers working on it almost daily. They even baled straw from our straw stack. Dad and several others had to pitch the straw into the 45. Not a hard job , as the baler did not have much capacity and it was shut down often for repairs and changes. That baler was to sell for around $650 to $ 750.It seems to me that it was priced about $ 900 when it came on the market a year or two latter. We had several other Mc Cormick machines at dads farm from the exp. farm over the years. It was very interesting. clint
