Ann Arbor Hay Press Co.

Gasoline traction hay presses were built by a few companies, including the Ann Harbor Hay Press Company. Obviously, it reflected a changing technology. Farm machines were improving so rapidly that this particular outfit only represented a minor improvement. The traction mechanism was not designed for drawbar work, except to possibly pull an empty wagon.

The Ann Arbor Hay Press Company began in 1910. They offered a self-propelled hay press, one of the earliest balers on the market. In the 1940’s they sold to Oliver Farm Equipment Company.
