A little history tid bit I read up on was that Massey had purchased the Toronto Reaper company in 1881 and Harris acquired the Osborne company in 1863.Apairently there was some intense completion between the two company's in the binder market until their merger in 1891.
Massey Harris then started producing their own mowers/binders/reapers and called them "Brantford" named after the town they were manufactured in.
I believe they started putting their own name on their equipment in the beginning of the century.

Hi Rick, I just noticed your 2009 post while searching for info on a "Brantford" reaper - thanks! You don't happen to recall where you read the info about dating the "Brantford" versus "M-H" labelling, do you? Not, of course, that I don't believe you, but I'd love to read more.....Thanks, Glenn

Glenn
I read that info from the book "The Advertising of Massey Harris/Massey Ferguson"
I believe that book is still available.

Good morning Casertractor;
I was wondering if you had any info on the M H #16 grain binder?I thought that this older thread might have some insight into how to change the wooden canvas slide on the left side of binder.I have one that I am refurbishing to use,but I can not figure out how the massey guys locked the drive gear onto the upper canvas drive roller? any suggestions!Tomq
The answer to the problem is the gear is threaded onto the roller stub shaft that drives the roller,standard 5/8" left hand thread. Now my cabinet maker skills will come into play to fab up a new slider!!! Tomq
