Is that an ELECTRIC WHEEL flarebox wagon raised up unloading into the auger?  Dad bought a 150 bu. version with Oliver decals and an 8 ton EWC/Oliver gear for it about 1965.  Had to stop hauling in loads with the '39 H.  We picked earcorn, had two feet of sideboards, and we filled it right up to the top.

      I hauled several loads of dry shell corn with it to town with the Super H,  right at 10,000# net, thankfully no big hills!  That's without sideboards.

300 bushel Lindsay Bros galvanized flarebox.  Used to have 2 more sideboards above that one for ear corn.

Swing hoppers are great but they sure splatter a lot of corn on the ground, I hauled some corn for a neighbor a couple weeks ago and when I went back to open the trap on the truck there was an old mud flap from a truck laying in the hopper and I thought,  well ok, guess everyone has there own method, couldn't believe it but if you got it in the right spot the corn would just pile up on it and run off the sides. I don't think there was a scoop shovel of corn there from filling a 28,000 bushel bin, learn something new every day.

Finished corn Saturday. Got the 806 on the Dakon 6 row stalk chopper for some end rows and field borders.  Then plan on disc chiseling what I can if the weather stays dry. Stalk shopper hasn't been on a tractor for probably 10 years. Greased all the bearings and checked oil in the gearbox and went to the field. The tires weren't even low!

 

Dad bought that 806 in 1971 so its been working for 50 years here now.  The chopper makes her smoke a little.  40 degrees out there so will go at it again tomorrow!
