Massey-Harris Blackstone Hay Rake

Hope this works as I haven't loaded a picture onto the website before.
Last year I bought a Massey-Harris Blackstone Hay Rake at a farm sale.I wasn't too sure if it was genuine when I first saw it so I rang Malcolm and he told me it was.I had never seen one before.I understand that the blue on it is too dark.
I guess you wouldn't have had them your side of the pond.

Seems like I haven't got to grips with sending pics. I'll try another day.

Just helping Alan out, the photo's were still too large for the site.

Here are his photo's of the very rarely seen complete M-H Blackstone SAM (Self Acting Manual ) Rake, it would of been horse drawn originally and changed to tractor drawbar in it's working life. We often see the seats and footplates preserved but rare to have a complete rake from this period of the M-H and Blackstone partnership.
