In Reply to: Hay Crimper posted by Texasmark1 on September 11, 2012 at 14:52:57:

Since you already have drum mower and tedder then I would be on lookout for an old Meyer stand alone conditioner crimper. The Meyer has a unique pick up tine system to actually feed the hay into the 2 rollers so it supposedly does not miss already cut hay and rarely if ever clogs. Many claim it to be the best crimper that they have ever used. (For the record I have never actually used a Meyer but the design does make sense to me as compared to other crimper only designs that rely on the rollers to pick up the hay).

The bad news is that the old Meyer crimpers are not always easy to find. I only found 1 of them back when I was toying with the idea of a stand alone crimper. Still kicking myself for not driving the 3 hours to purchase it as the price was even less than scrap value.

I ended up going with a Hesston 1120 haybine type cutter/conditioner (or moco) and do not have any regrets really as I can do cutting and crimping in one trip over the field instead of traveling 2 trips over field. Have no issues with sickle type cutter bar for a small operator like me. Cheap and easy to keep operational and works decent with the low hp antique junk tractors that I primarily use.
