Looks like a great time as usual.  Been trying hard to make it down but this year has been very trying to put it mildly.  I'm still pondering a turn and burn....

This is a 220 A two row cotton picker.

my Dad bought one in 1962 63 and this is what got me involved with Allied Equipment shop for my junior & senior year in HS.

few closer up pics

Looks like an awesome time. After I graduate high school it’s on the bucket list to go to RPR, since I stay plenty busy in June and haven’t had enough time to get down there😭

Keep the pics coming😁

Looks like things are shaping up nicely. Thanks for the pics. They will give me the push to finish up work and get heading south. Planning to be there by noon tomorrow. Can’t wait. Must be nice to be retired and not just tired.

Thanks Tony for the great pics for those of us who couldn't make it , looks like it will be an awesome show. I know it will be a fun one being organised by our friends in Alabama and a great time will be had. Keep up the photos and the updates. I know there are some kiwi's that are at the show (hopefully at least one will make it to the meeting of the forum members) , just not us this time sadly.

Ya'll have a blast

These are sulfer machines.

before chemicals for cotton mites we would dust the plants with sulfer dusting miticide. 

These were six row dusters

My eyes started hurting when you showed the photos of the dusters. I remember putting copper sulfate dust on peanuts and you eyes burning for days!

I just hauled a Root brand duster to the scrap yard in the last couple of weeks.

I remember the dusting days------but never actually operated a duster in the field.  The operator sometimes would wear a set of goggles and a bandana over his face.

I am just thinking about the dust effect on the engine air filter-----wonder how often they got any extra service?

And-------then back in the days of the mule;  don't reckon the ol' mule had the luxury of an air cleaner nor bandana.

Glad to see all of the Cotton equipment displayed.

Keep us posted with pictures-------Hello to everybody-------have fun!!!

Tony----

Hate to rain on your parade-------but whoever brought the big red Mack (with the load of tractors) is riding in better style than you with your motor home!!!

Please give my compliments to them-----that old Mack is a noble critter.

*****

Also------be on the look out for Buddy Cochran and his wife Carolyn.  They are close friends (and neighbors) of mine here at Avon, Mississippi.  Big cotton grower and operates the Avon Gin.  Buddy does not frequent the RedPower forum--------but makes alot of the toy tractor shows.  They will be there beginning tomorrow.

We left Panama City this morning around 4:30 headed back to Ky. and got to the show as the gates opened at the roundup. Worked out great as we had to go back thru Montgomery. Wish we could have stayed longer as more tractors and people were coming in . Met several red tractors  headed south on I65 as we were headed north.  Made it home by 4pm!!
