We are indebted to Mr. Loran Sweet, R. D. 1, Mason, Michigan, for the pictures and description of this unusual Thresher. It came in the period of about 1907-08. It never seemed to gain much ground for some reason. Or maybe reasons. We shall be glad to hear from anyone who had experience with these machines. E.L.R.

This new threshing machine was invented by Halvor O. Sageng of Dalton, Minnesota. It combines both engine and separator on one truck and is a radical departure in thresher construction. Instead of a steam engine, a 70 hp. four cylinder gasoline motor furnishes the power. The machine has an upper and lower straw rack which provides double separating capacity.

It weighs 11 tons. It has a 36, inch cylinder and the separator is 60 inches.

We think the pictures will describe very well all that we could put in print.
