The attention of all parties interested Hi the
pressing or compressing of Hat, Cotton, Bkmt*,
Wool, Rags, Hops, or any other article required to
be baled for Transportation, Storage or Consump
tion, is respectfully solicited, to the PORTABLE
or STATIONARY PRESSES, manufactured by
this Company, under the superintendence of the
Patentee, Mr. John EL Gove
The Press is very simple in its construction, re
quiring but ordinary intelligence to work it, and
can be operated by any known power, such as
Steam, Water, Horse or Hand. In using Horse
power but one horse is required, the Press being
so mechanically constructed on a well-known
principle that the ttr~ power increases in a greater
ratio than the increasing resistance.
The advantages of this Press over all others
are as follows, viz;
Ist. It can press 20 per cent, more material in
a giver spaoe.
2d. It cun do the work in 33 per centless time.
3d. It requires 50 per cent, less driving power.
4th. It turns out the best shaped bale ior hand
ling or rolling.
sth. The I ress will last a life-time, he. work
ing parts being built of the best of iron, and not
liable to get out of order.
The ordinary work of this machine will press
in one operation (after once filling the box of the
No. 1 Press) a bale of Hay of 450 lbs. weight in
Four men and one horse can bale 12 tons of
Hay a day.
Four men without the aid of a horse, or any
power except that contained in the ''ress, can
turn out a bale of nay 27 inches sqnareby 46 inch
es long, weighing 460 lbs., or 23 1-2 lbs. to the cu
No toggle joints, screws, cog-wheels, boaters,
or rollers used in this Press.
The attention of Cotton factors and planters,
Wool and Hemp raisers, is especially called to
this Press, destined as it is to work a complete
revolution in the now slow, clumsy and expen
sive method of baling.
The Company will dispose of Town, County or
State rights (reserving to themselves only the
right to'manufacture) on reasonable terms.
