Sunday threshing on a Saturday....

The show this was shot at was in fine shape this year. Lots of new faces & some new (old) equipment turned up. The weather was great! The threshing went off without a hitch & yes, the belts on the threshers were in better shape this year.

One of the new features at the show is a Case thresher with one of the sides cut away & a motor on it to animate it. It turned out very nice!

Enjoy!

Did you get new belts for it?  If so were?  I need a set for mine.  

find some used round baler belting and make your own.

Rubber belts are not the best choice for a threshing machine. I have had to deal with them on someone else’s machine.

Have you done it before.  These are belts are different widths so how do you cut them?  

A good sharp utility knife will cut baler belts fairly easy. I’ve seen baler belts used before on old equipment.

Don't think they are new. The owner of the threshers has a small stockpile of good used ones.

Flywheel Supply can still get you fresh belting. Please be seated when reading the pricing per foot.

Otherwise, keep your eye out for auctions. Think there was just an Aumann auction out in ND that had belting.

When I bought my threshing machine, the belts were stored inside.  But when I put them on and started the machine, the belts flew apart so I'm not too keen on buying used ones or belting thats 100 years old.  Thanks for the link.
