  • New Holland Hay baler

Philip Bigarel of Gouverneur, sent us this photo of his 1955 New Holland SP 166 self-propelled hay baler, which pulls a hay wagon behind. It is powered by two 15 HP Wisconsin engines.

Bigarel reports that when he took the restored equipment to a show, many people had never seen one like it before.

New Holland, a Lancaster County, Pennsylvania manufacturer, was again in the news early in October, when Ford Motor Company announced that it would buy the company from its current parent, Sperry Corporation.
