Pictures of machines made to look like a Real Ryedale, but are not
Here are some pictures of sorters that are designed to look like a Ryedale Sorter™, but in reality they are not.
They are targeting the uninformed on EBay.
I have since taken up advertising on Ebay as well as having a few Auctions out there to help educate people about the copy and counterfeit Ryedale Sorters that are being offered.
If you receive a machine touted to be a Ryedale Sorter™ that looks like the following pictures, you should send it back immediately and demand your money back. The "home made" chute is a casting of the real Ryedale Chute. These are breaking and falling apart with normal use, then the seller suggests the buyer contact me to get some new parts. Another variety has bent up metal chutes and the builder has made a direct copy of my red base metal chute, again with the intent to fool people that they are buying a Ryedale Sorter™.
This machine is a copy from the sheet metal to the harness. I have even heard the sellers are using used parts to assemble their machines.
