Can anyone help me identify this model? It is an old Montgomery Ward hammer mill. This one is unique from the other Montgomery hammer mills I have searched because it has a pre-chopping unit in front of the milling chamber. The chopping unit has several blade with a twisted helix configuration like a real mower. The unit also comes with a toothed feed drum accompanying the feed belt. The gentleman I bought this from doesn't know anything about the unit. This unit does not have a name plate, but part numbers are still clearly stamped all over this thing.

I think I know what you are talking about. It is a hammer mill either a 15" or 17" wide model with a self feeder for hay bales as well as for grain. Hor bales if narrower model lay on edge, wider flat and it will pull them in at a speed it cam handle to gring them up into alfalfa meal for hogs or chickens. But it can also be used to grind ear corn for cows or sheled corn for hogs or chickens and can be seet to feed to just what it will handle without overloading or pluging the feeder throught as a normal hammer mill with just the slide to put the grain on you can do. Built not later than 57 because it is not in the 58 catalog. And not sure where my older catalogs are now. I have never seen one only in the catalog and they cost about twice as much as the normal non self feeder models. The mill I used was a David Bradley 10" mill and we ground a lot of hay for hog feed with it but you had to tear all the slabs of hay apart befor tryimg to feed it in the mill. Ground all the baling chaff off the wagons after unloading to mow for use in hog feed. Way cheaper than the alfalfa meal you could buy at the local elevator to get mixed into your feed. And a lot better as that alfalfa meal as long as it tested to a certain abount could be 90% weeds where we had good high quality hay to put into the feed. A 1" screen will completely grind up any hay. We tried the 1/8" screen at first and found out things were better with the 1" but for cow feed the few tines we ground at home we would use a 1/2" screen. But trying to mix oats and corn and supplements with out a mixer was just too hard. Then we had to stake down outside barn every time wanted to grind feed. We would have a hundred burlap feed sacks filled at a time to take as needed to the elevator to be mixed into the hog feed when it was ground. That type of mill were very scarce as most were not conserned with the ability to grind a bale of hay into the feed. Were in the 49 catalog I have, not sure how much earlier they were made up to 56. I am now 74 and out of livestalk since early 80's.

Is it a hammer mill, or a burr mill? Hammer mill has free swinging hammers that grind and force the material through a screen. Burr mill often has the twisted roll to help it pull ear corn into the burrs. Post a pic?

It seems to me that it might be both. It has a hammer mill but also another stage in front that has blades like you deacribe. Do burr mills also have the hammer mill section with them; are burr mills two stage implements?
