something cool I found a stripper harvester which was invented by an english man in Australia in 1843 and was manufactured with updates by other manufactures until 1930s by some companies similar to this one a beater beats out the grain and all is thrown into the back and later cleaned with a winnower

I might have posted this one a few years ago already but thought it was worth a re-run. Probably from the early 1900s featuring Case road roller and Case steam engine with threshing machine.

I think it was the 1980s when a British company, Shelbourne Reynolds, marketed a stripper header here in North America. Never saw one work but I figured they might be good for flax. A way to avoid putting that terrible straw through the combine.

My JD dealer sells a few of those shelbournes each year.  We are going to look into them someday.  On the flax, I don’t know if it’s the variety or your climate or what but there has been a little bit of resurgence around here growing flax and the guys I know that are growing it don’t seem to have any problems combining it.  Don’t matter what brand of combine either.  I have one neighbor that planted a flax/chickpea mix. Turned out good considering the dry summer we had.

Here is some International LB engine literature that I got this past weekend to go with my LB. The date code shows it’s a 1946

The LB’s were made up until 1948. There were two different sizes as the literature shows. But quite a few more of the 3-5 hp models were made after 1945 according to a list I have. I looked at a 1 1/2- 2 1/2 1948 LB that was completely restored, it could have been mine for $400 but it was 6.5 hrs from me

Seems strange to see a big (for 1971) four wheel drive tractor without a cab but it was still considered a luxury accessory in those times.

Are there any more details in that ad?? I’m trying to figure out what models they are.  I’m guessing the one on the right is the 700.  The one on the left I’ve never heard of and it guessing it didn’t make into production.

I can't find any more details on that ad. According to my info they only had the models 118 and 145 in 1971. Not sure what came after that but I don't recall any hydrostatic drive models. Unless the bi-directional was?

The 300 was around 1975. It was hydro drive.  Bigger one still looks to have cat v8

Another good old Massey Harris ad from 1951. Some of the numbers on fuel cost per acre and the amount of land they farmed with just a few horsepower seem hard to imagine today.
