Corn picking weekend.

Recommended Posts

A few pics from our "Picker Days". @DT Fan posted some teasers in his post. 

The 1st 6 are from a good friend that brings his drone, he's got some great shots over the last few years, and some great video too. 

The other pics are some that I snapped. Hard to get a bunch of pics when busy the whole time. 

Enjoy!

What row spacing in the corn?  Will the pickers do 30" rows?

More than likely 38” rows. I don’t know if any mounted pickers were designed for 30” rows. If  I’m not mistaken a couple manufacturers did produce pull-type pickers for narrow rows, but don’t hold me to that.

I’ve watched him do it Mac. There’s a door on the snout. Crank may be extra long, I don’t know. 

Before my time but my Dad talks about my Grandpa having an F20 with mounted picker.  As you said there was a door in the center snoot that you opened to crank it.  

I remember my other Grandpa, Mom's Dad, saying "The only good thing about the good old days is that they aren't here anymore."  That comes to mind when I think about trying to steer an F20 with no power steering and a mounted picker.
