Battery charger; bale chopper
I have a Century battery charger that needs a new switch. I had a flyer with it, but it doesn't give any address or phone number. This company also makes electric welders.
I also have a small bale chopper Tomahawk 100 made by Parmiter North America. Could you tell me where I can find parts?

I recently purchased a JD 216 platform, and the reel has had the wood batts and metal teeth replaced with plastic fingers. The fingers have the name Gentle Fingers stamped on the side. Could you tell me where to find replacements? All of my local suppliers have not been able to help.
