Hay Press Back In Business

Vintage hay presses, including a rare Kansas City Lightning, get back to work with help from Minnesota collector

The Bale Chamber on the Kansas City Lightning Hay Press
The bale chamber on the Kansas City Lightning combined hay press measures 14 inches wide and 18 inches high. Note the bale wires extending out of a tube on the machine’s side. Designed for use on a modern cardboard box baler, the wires were modified for use on the vintage machine.
