The best advertisement for any product is a lot
of satisfied customers.
Ask any of the many users of “Sol-Hot” Brooder
equipment about their experience last season with
their “Sol-Hot.” They will invariably tell you that;
they have never seen or used anything to equal it in
its simplicity, dependability and economy of opera
But great as has been the success and outstanding
leadership in popularity in past seasons, the 1924
“Sol-Hot” models have anything ever put out befora
backed off the boards. *
Just a few of the many improvements you will
find in no other brooder: The new style canopy is
built as strong as a house; the new large-size fire
proof metal oil container has removed all fire haz-
zards, which alone will make the public prefer the
“Sol-Hot;” positive automatic oil control; reduced
oil consumption; increased heat production; more
chick capacity; diaphragm fresh-air circulating
hover systeni, and many other new features too nu
merous to mention.
See these new brooders on display at Poultry Show
