What I believe to be the best one is not mentioned and that has the best features of both the No. 1 and the No. 22 and built between them, That one is the No. 21 and has the style rolls of the No. 1 but the larger wheels like the No. 22 and both the rolls are driven like the No. 22 and not only the top roll like the No. 1. I have had both, the No. 1 that after a few years it busted the bottom roll as it is not driven and put too much stress on it. Then we got an Allis with 2 rubber rolls on it and used for a few years and bought a No. 22 as thought it would do better like the old No. 1 did. After a while we parked the No. 22 and went back to the AC untill we bought a Case 9 ft. 555 mower-conditioner. The wide set crimp on the No. 22 just did not do the job the narrow set crimp on the No. 1 did and the smooth rolls on the AC did better than the No. 22 except for picking up the crop, you had to go in direction of travel with it. With the No. 1 and No. 22 you could cut the back cut on outside of field and then just hook on to them and go and they would pick up the back cut in the direction opposite of cut but with the smooth rolls you had to make that cut, and mow the second round, hook the conditioner to a second tractor to condition that back cut then switch the conditioner to the mower for the rest of the field. Also used a McCormick No. 2? with smooth rolls for a time that belonged to uncle before we bought the first one. Also I understand the New Idea was a very good machine if it noes not have to be a Deere. Our mower with the hitch was a Oliver.
