CHAMPION Cord Binder. FARMERS contemplating purchasing a Binder this season should first see the above machine, and carefully examine the numerous improvements. In case any Farmers have not been able to attend the trials held, some opinions of those who have used the Champion are here appended, EDWARD REECE, Agent for New Zealand. Greendale, January 2, 1886. Mb E. Reece. Dear Sir, — I am pleased to be able to inform you that since purchasing my Champion Cord Binder I have cut and tied 30 acres of grass seed, much tangled with clover and trefoil, and the machine did its work well. The relief rake and new butter are great improvements, and are indispensable for all kinds of crops. I find the machine very light draft and easily handled, well built and strong, and 1 think yon ought to do well with the Champion,—Yours truly, G. Ridgen. Burnside, January 3, 1885. Mb E. Reece. Dear Sir, —In reply to your enquiry as to my opinion of the new Champion Cord Binder, tried on my farm during last harvest, I may say it was worked for days together in the heaviest and in all kinds of crops—viz., wheat, oats and barley—and in every case "gave entire satisfaction. It is a very clean cutting machine, and leaves a clear stubble. The binding is equally good and reliable. It is a very strong machine, simple in construction, easily managed, and thoroughly practicable. To anyone requiring a machine, I consider it quite equal to any in the market, and in some points superior. Yours truly, W. Boao. We, the undersigned farmers, having been present at the Exhibition of the Champion "lord Binder as made at Mr Cherry’s Farm, Eyreton, hereby express our complete satisfaction with the efficient way the grain was handled. The numerous improvements in the machine are moat invaluable, and contributed materially to the success of the trial. (Signed) F. Denton .
