This is an 'Alligator' box-type horse power operated Hay Baler -- the only one in operation in the entire U.S. It will be in operation at the Wisconsin Historical Steam Rodeo, Inc., at Luxemburg, Wisconsin, Labor Day Weekend - September 4 and 5. The sweep power used with this unit is not shown. Height is almost 10 feet. The rear wheels are 5 feet in height. 3 wires are used on the bales which are huge and weigh up to 225 lbs. each. The bale is removed from the side through a door in right front of baler. The baler is about 75 years old and owned by Orwin C. Burmeister of Kewaunee, Wisconsin. It sure is an antique and rare machine!
