Hay stackers still in use today

I was pleased to see the "Jayhawk" stacker ad reproduced in the June issue of Farm Collector, but the photos needed a better background. The explanation of its use was not very clear. I've enclosed a copy of a page from the 1923 International Harvester catalog. Though a different make, the construction and use are clear. For a good description of a stacker today, see Verlyn Klinkenborg's Making Hay, published by Nick Lyons Books, 31 W. 21st St., New York City, NY 10010. They still use stackers in Wyoming today!
