Here are some pics from the pioneer days in my area!

.

Some unique harvest equipment from the 1985 Case-IH buyers guide. I never saw any hillside machines or double swather hitches here. But the pull type axial flow combine was everywhere.

Talk about a down-front cylinder.

Somewhere on the internet there is a picture floating around of an experimental Gleaner CII with a rotor down front just like cylinder on the regular CII.  There was two engines probably for the extra hp needs and to counter balance the rotor.  Think the picture was from the late 60s.

Sugar cane is a giant grass. The sugar is concentrated in the stems. The harvester cuts off the leaves at the top, the stalks are cut at ground level and the cut stalk cut into approx 12 inch pieces. Trash is blown out of the harvester and is left as mulch over the plants.

Cane can be harvested several times (annualy) before cultivating and replanting.

The cut pieces are transported to a mill and crushed and heated to extract the juice and sugar.

The remaining plant trash is used to fire the boilers to generate electricity to power the mill and also sold for use by locals.

Getting ready to start up the threshing machine for harvest. Might need to look for a new drive belt from Goodyear.

Chamberlain tractors were manufactured in West Australia starting after WW2.

They were part owned by John Deere when the tractor in the photo was built in the 1980s. These Chamberlains were powered by JD engines.

Here is one from 1969

That's really cool those that company still exist? Or was it bought up?

The brand BOURGOIN still exists.

https://www.bourgoin.fr/
This French company was bought in 2013 by the Dutch group Ploeger Oxbo Group.
This machine was produced from 1986 to 1992.
Very complex and expensive machine, difficult to position against Massey Ferguson, John Deere, Claas or CASE IH; sales did not follow.
