IP you have ever owned a separator of any other make then
Is one outstanding feature of the NEW Dc Laval that will
appeal to you as much as even its mechanical superiority
and that is its simplicity.
You won't find any complicated troublesome parts in the
NEW De Laval. It docs not get out of order easily even when
it is misused; and if for any reason you ever should want to take
it apart the only tool you need is the combination wrench and
screw-driver furnished with each machine.
The NEW De Laval is the simplest

hie a modern De Laval machine down to the last part within five
minutes and then put it together again within ten minutes. This
is something that cannot be done outside a machine shop with
any other separator made and any separator user who has ever
had to wrestle with the complicated mechanism found in other
separators will appreciate what it means to him.
Dont fail to stop in and see the NEW De Laval the next time
you are in town. Even if you are not in the market for a sepa-
rator right now come in and examine a separator that is said by
experts to embody the greatest improvements in cream separator
construction in the last thirty years.
