I had never actually heard from anyone that tried it or how well they worked. I wondered about the drive too but the 90 degree gearbox makes sense. I didn't know if a hydraulic drive would handle an auger in tough crops with a lot of return flow. Here is another view of those Massey combines featuring the very popular Melroe pickup with rubber belts. Hydraulic drive too. Appears to be picking up flax swaths. How on earth did they put flax through that paddle feeder system without wrapping straw on every paddle? The combine might have a regular feederhouse chain. The paddle idea was stupid in my opinion.
