- The catalogue covers a range of products including a detailed descriptions of their functions and possible uses. It also outlines that the "Sun Twin-Disc Cultivator has been "specifically adapted for work amongst Malee Stumps".
An interesting element of the catalogue is the sale of rabbit proof metal gates, as it show that rabbits where considered a serious pest affecting farmers crops at this time.
Throughout the catalogue there are small etches of the Sunshine Harvester Works as well as farmers using McKay products for their work. The back cover features a large full page view of the Sunshine Harvester works with smoking chimneys and trains leaving and travelling past the factory.
