This department housed some of the raw materials used at the Harvester Works. One of the works’ five internal railway lines ran through the store, where a crane unloaded material from the railway wagons. Today, the remains of this crane can still be seen inside the former store.
In other areas of the factory, workers used electric cranes to move awkward machinery like ploughs, rakes and hay balers, and to load finished implements into railway wagons.
