1943 British Cutlift Machine Photo

Modern Farming; Agriculture in Britain, 1943.

"Agricultural workers operate a tractor-drawn 'Cutlift' machine in a clover field in Hampshire. This machine can be used to cut any green crop. Once cut, the crop passes up the conveyor and is dropped into the trailer. It can then be taken to a silo and be used as cattle feed. This machine is very useful because it means that entire fields can be cleared rapidly."
