UTCHFIELD ENDLESS CONVEYER
It has been almost universally conceded that an endless conveyer is the
the most practical kind for a Manure Spreader, and is an ideal form of con
struction, if the troubles due to clogging up with certain kinds of material
and in severe cold weather could be overcome. This is even admitted by cur
Therefore, to prove absolutely that the Litchfield Manure Spreader is
superior to every other machine on the market in this particular part, we
have onlo to prove that the Litchfield automatic section conveyer is the only
noh-clogging conveyer manufactured.
As evidence to our readers that the Litchgeld fully controls }he no-choke
conveyer, we refer to the records of the patent office which will verify our
statements. It is easy for anyone to understand w hy other spreader interests
will attempt to throw “cold water” on the growing popularity of the no
choke endless conveyer. It is always a hard struggle for any individual and
radical improvement to gain a foot-liold w here competition, by being out
from the use of this improvement, is continually arguing against it.
We therefore say to our readers: Do not let the arguments against the
endless conveyer, that are commonly offered by interests manufactnring the
other kind, mislead you. All the arguments that are put up against the
endless conveyer do not hold good in any way when it comes to applying
them to the Litchfield No-Choke Endless Conveyer.
See the machine. See it work and judge for yourself. Investigate the
style of construction and the manner in which this conveyer is put into tne
machine and the why it works and use your own judgment.
We hope no customer will buy a Litchfield Spreader simply because we,
or any of our agents, say it is the best. What we want is investigation. All
we want is a fair chance and we will show you that the Litchfield Spreader
is not anywhere near duplicated by any other make of machine being manu
factured in the United States, or elsewhere, today. Time is telling the
story very fast and sure.
