Bucher Guyer's first Self Loading wagon in 1960, my grandfather had one just like it. My grandfather was one of 30 farmers that got one of the first series. That machine run until it got traded off in 1970. This pic I got from a magazine:

Am I correct that those are Swiss tractors?

here is another Swiss tractor brand Buehrer once the largest tractor maker in Switzerland, the company still exists today but only as a service and parts company. The Tractospeed transmission was and still is a masterpiece of Swiss engineering

Haying season here now. I guess in the mid 1950s this Snowco bale loader was a real labour saving device. From 1953.

that one appears to be a bit newer than the one in the ad.  I have no date for the advertisement.

No , I have only seen the self propelled balers in ads. I don't think they sold many at all here in Sask. The pull type pto balers were very popular though. As was the pull type bale wagons. Saw the occasional self propelled bale wagon too. This ad from 1973.

Yes, there were a surprising number of them sold in eastern Canada, and particularly in Quebec. I saw them as  a kid at several of the farm shows in Quebec and eastern Ontario. In fact a local collector near me has two of them stacked away in his collection.

Was at the grandparents house yesterday in hopes to find some old successful farming magazines with some farm equipment ads but I couldn’t find the magazines. I’ll have to have grandpa do a search for me??

I did find this International truck ad. I don’t know the year but I’m thinking late 40’s to early 50’s? 

This is one sided and it’s made out of cardboard material with plastic around it.

Time flies. Its been days since I posted any vintage ads so here is one. In 1948 New Holland was selling cement mixers.
