The world's largest cream separator, made by DeLaval. Four were built, but because of balancing problems, the unit was never put into production. Two of the four were scrapped, and one was sent to Russia. The lone survivor in the U.S. was given to Kent for his collection. Shown in front: the smallest separator Kent knows of, manufactured by Viking.
