Does anybody know anything about this company? Was at a farm yesterday and the guy had a Cunningham hay conditioner sitting in back of the shed. Was painted yellow and orangy-red. He doesn't use it, and I have no intention of getting it, just curious, because I have never heard of this company before. What other equipment did they make?

Years ago about every 3rd crimper around was a Cunningham. Never saw anything else branded that, though.

I've got a Cunningham hay crimper and use it only on 1st cutting alfalfa if the hay is really rank. The working end of the Cunningham is best described as two gears like cylinders 6'long! The crimping occurs when the hay passes between the gears - it is really rough on the hay. Never heard of any other machines made by Cunningham and have no idea of history. Dick

Growing up on a dairy farm in the 1950's and 60's we used Cunningham crimpers on all our hay crops timothy and alfalfa, some seasons would be 100 plus acres.
The metal gears/bars would crush the stalk causing the hay to dry more evenly and quickly. This speeded up the haying process plus made the bales easier to handle and more palatable for the cattle. We also had a hay tedder that was made by Cunningham, these items where purchased though a Massey-Ferguson dealer in our area. I too would be interested in more info on this company!
