  1. Serial # 2610163UO15215 is in Lyndon, IL. Dont' know the story, but I know the owner of it & he did not originally buy it
  2. I don't own this literature, but ran across it & thought it was neat as h*ll
  3. Looks like a hay loader alright. I've never used one or even seen one around here. I am pretty sure I have posted ads for them somewhere way back in this thread. Cockshutt made one and it shows up in this ad from 1950. Lonestar, he made sure to point out the inset wheels instead of outset wheels. I asked him why the inset and he said I don't know, but any other I have seen had the wheels on the outside.
  4. I'm way too young to ever remember anyone using these regularly, but I have a neighbor who has quite a barn full of draft horses and he uses one behind a team to harvest his hay. We call it a hay loader. Check out youtube, quite a few vids of the Amish using them out in PA. Here are two pics showing what the rig may have looked like when new. This was displayed at our local thresheree. Keith- That's a great looking set up. He was sure to mention to me that it was an inset wheel vs. A normal outset wheel. It looks like the picture you posted has has outset wheels. Thanks for posting those pictures!
  5. Also had this. I have never seen one of these ever. He told me you hooked a wagon behind it & drove over the windrows & it would run up the paddles & into the trail wagon. He didn't know the year, but it faintly said McCormick Deering on the belly tin of the vertical chute. It had an adjustable bar with teeth on the underside of the tin to adjust the vertical angle. Very cool. Gary or Lonestar got an information on these?
  6. This is not an ad, but I found this behind a guy's shed I was delivering shingles to this morning. I know nothing about it other than it is a model 76. I will post more of this man's treasures in the coffee shop.
  7. How much for the little 50cc 4wheeler Gary? Been looking for a good excuse for a road trip out west. redneckchevy9, Mike mentioned to me Sunday that both kids have outgrown that little four wheeler and he was going to sell it! If you're serious, I can get you his phone number, or you can get it off of the internet. Gary I am still working on my wife to get our 5yr old daughter something of 4wheeler nature. I wouldn't even have to drive out there, I could fly out there & drive it home

  9. I see that now - gotta make the sale though!
  10. On the end of the spectrum, here is loader that looks like it would've come in handy unloading into your loft in the barn. Made in MN, so maybe some of you guys will recognize it or may have owned one.
  11. That is true. In the days before hydro you had variable pulleys moved by a lever, or hydraulic cylinder on my dad's model 60 Massey. I believe it had two speed transmission and infinitely variable speeds in each gear. Just push the lever forward to go faster or all the way back to slow down. The catch was that there was no clutch pedal so it got interesting if you tried slowing down on a downhill grade. Slow down the variable pulleys too much and suddenly you were free-wheeling in neutral. Here is an ad showing some of the details of Cockshutt drive-o-matic which I think was much the same as the Massey Harris variable drive . They used a foot pedal instead of a lever on the consolel like Massey. Very interesting! Do you know how fast you were going sir? No. 5/8MPH!!!!!!! slow it down
  12. I'd think on hills like that a knobby aircraft tire might not be the best choice. But I guess the guys that run them have it figured out by now and use what works. Cockshutt does not mention the tires in this 1953 combine ad but you can see the "big knobbies" on this combine in the picture. More than 100 forward speeds? I bet that shift pattern decal was HUGE! Probably just like my IH 151 combine or my Massey 90. The lever for the variable speed has notches in the gate so you really have something like 10 speeds per gear. Why would someone need that many options?

  14. You kidding me, I love it & I hate thing with 2 wheels
