Dan Robinson's Corn Picking weekend

Since no one else has t=started a thread I guess I will.

'Shiek' and I attended Dan's corn-picking event Sunday. I had a great time, pretty sure Aaron did too. I didn't take a lot of pictures but did take a few. Aaron probably got a bunch. There was a fellow with a drone, maybe Dan will post some of that footage?

Dan's buddy Kevin is quite a fellow, has lots of cool toys!

Long story short, here's the pics I took.

I have never seen that IH two wheel auger trailer or the IH elevator. 

Great pics and it looked like a lot of fun!

That elevator is really cool. He/they have quite a few rare pieces.

Another rarity is the THREE row corn head.  (Four snouts equals three rows)  And it appears that the ladder would have raised h3ll on the next row of standing corn.

I've seen one of the little augur carts several years ago, at a small machinery jockey's place of business in Dublin, TX.

I'd only seen the IH hydraulic raised elevator in a brochure I used to have.

IH model 21 elevator powered by an MD.  The 21 is a neat elevator with several innovative features.   The cylinder lift is exactly how all modern augers raise and lower.  It also features a removable cover that reveals slots for grain to channel into a chute and be easily collected.  Dan had it dumping into an auger through and through a chore auger into a #10 cart.20221030_104535.thumb.jpg.304238a9a56d52dd90d5fa366a18f4f2.jpg20221030_104413.thumb.jpg.4980308fd489c9a4a3deb636fa40937a.jpg20221030_104426.thumb.jpg.05d8b7cb285f7aa648ec516432d83d1a.jpg

Thanks for coming! And thanks for sharing pics!

The combine is a 315, has a 3row 30in head on it. I had the 2 row 38in head on for taking off the picker corn endrows, swapped heads out Friday night. It has a hydro, and factory straw chopper. Odd combo. 

The ladder will fold up against the door when you pull on the rope and tie it up. Makes it a hot box with the door shut. Broke a land then left the ladder down. 

At some point it did have an A/C kit in it, but the evaporator has been removed from the cab. 

Mike (DTFan) and Aaron (nepoweshiekfarmalls) both ran my 234 and sheller on Kevins 806. 

Had the last 4 rows to do, so I swapped on the grinder unit for them, and ground the last rows onto the #10 cart.

I will try to get some drone shots posted up.

The 656 gas Utility with 2000 loader my grandfather bought new, my mom just bought it from the estate a few months ago. Needs a lot of TLC but I'm happy to have it. 

The Killbros gravity box has a IH 330 gear under it. We were unloading on the go. Uphill, the 315 didn't have enough ponies, downhill we were good... lol.

Thanks for ALL the ;pictures!

 

And a 2510 John Deere under the #237.

Our HS ag class had a 2510 gas restored that we used to work some school owned ground and farm making money for the FFA. That 2510 was the most gutless tractor I have ever been around.  I’m not saying that because of the color.

3 x 30" row corn heads were fairly common when I was a kid.  Guys went to 6 x 30" planters but the combines weren't big enough for a 6 row head so a lot had 3 row.

My Dad's Stan Hoist elevator had slots for shell corn to fall through.  But it did not have a chute, that is a neat idea to contain it all to 1 spot.

 

I'm horrified when I see all these mounted pickers with 2 people riding on the tractor.  I think I even saw someone riding on the husking unit.  Looks like a great business opportunity for someone selling prosthetic limbs.
