I also have that Vol 37, No 3 in 1955 Canadian Tractor Farming magazine. My parents used to get them sent to us starting in late 1954 and continued to get them up into the 1970's . Then I started to get them from my local dealer. I have also bought copies from 1950 to 1954 to complete my collection. I also have some of the US version of Tractor farming from the 1940's and 1950's that I bought from vendors at shows. Sometime about 5 years from now I should sell the collection. One of the good issues was from about early 1963 showing the 4300 that Patricks John Deeres grandfather had in SW Manitoba. I remember looking at the pictures and wondered why such a large tractor was needed. Of course today 300 HP is small in 4wd terms.

 Ok, on the fords.  Just out of frame.  Should of took pic.  2 of them there.

 

 

I might be wrong but that Ford on the left looks like a "Jubilee" 1953 model. Nice cross motor Case there too.

re:  Lilliston rolling cultivator ad from last week

Here is a picture of one of my old 6 row units that I gave to a tenant who rented a farm that I managed a number of years ago.  Cultivating cotton in Leflore County, Mississippi---------believe Willie's tractor was a 1206.

Willie had never heard of a GPS guidiance system at this time------but he could hold it on the row all day long.

Here is an ad  for the Grunder Motor Mower:

The Grunder Company is a pioneer when it comes to Garden tillers it was the first company that made them starting in August 1 1917 when the company A. Grunder & Co. AG. was founded by August Grunder (1880-1957).

I have a brochure for one of those.  It was MM combine similar to this one that turned my land lord green.  They were running a pull type MM then went to a MM SP.  Had it only one year before they traded it for a JD 55.

I don't think there were a lot of these MM combines sold around here. Now JD 55 is a different story. They were everywhere. Lot of  pull type 65 machines as well. They must have been ok.

Lots of mm pull type combines got sold for scrap when it was high down here. Even seen one that was stored inside pulled out and scrapped. Those JD combines are around here to dads buddy has 2 45s one older and a newer style. A lot of 95 ,96 and a few 105 used down here. The 105 must have been a decent combine guys still ran them until they bought 9600 jds to replace them.

I always find it interesting that 30s-60s ads seem to all claim they Make you money.  Not sure how that worked!?

But today they all seem to push You Can do more/faster.  

I guess we farmers finally saw through that line about making more money. Every time we make more money, they find ways to raise the price of our inputs and machinery. 

John Deere was pushing more capacity and reduced grain loss when they introduced this new 7721 pull type combine in 1980. (Or maybe late 70s)

Here is another Grunder Motor Mower ad (I think the ads are from the 30s):

 

Interesting art work on that ad. You would think they might put a seat on it for the operator. 

Here is a combine that is familiar to me. The 1967 Cockshutt 542. A neighbour bought one in 1969 and came to help my dad finish harvest in the late, cold and damp harvest of 69. Dad drove that machine til the early morning hours of November 11. I guess the old Chrysler flathead six put a bit of heat behind the seat but he said he nearly froze sitting up in the open and cold wind. Ground was freezing already.

Oh yes you could order a seat for that motor mower just look at the ad that I posted on August 16! Nice Combine by the way, a cab sure was a big difference when they came out with AC and a heater. When did they start to put a diesel engine in Combines? My Grandfather bought a used combine in 1977 but that thing was already an ancient machine (one of the first combines imported into Switzerland) it was a Koedel & Boehm (or Koela for short). The combine looked similar to the one at the bottom but with the cutter bar of the top one. His had no corn head though.

So, looks like that machine threshed and baled at the same time.

I found this picture on the KXRB radio website. Obviously the rear wheels are converted from steel, but I wonder what the front wheels are. Like did Firestone make front wheel rims for converting steel?

I believe those front wheels are also steel cut offs.
