That's a bit different. Usually you see the belt being driven by the rear wheels.

That is a great photo. That machine is very interesting too. Dane could you explain the chaff cutter. Is it a hay grinder?

Those little ones sitting up on the seat backs in the T are taking it all in.

Steve I think the rear wheel powered units were for a little lighter service, Pump jacks, corn shellers, washing machines and the like.

That would look great on a cover of Vintage Ford.......Maybe a "colorized" version ????...You could even flip-it to put the "T" on the front of the cover.........Thanks for posting,, Great Find !! Carl

Thanks for the video Dale. It's like a silage cutter. I was having a hard time understanding the fellow with the bag on his shoulder. Pretty fluffy stuff to use gunny sacks to carry it?

Notice the chart showing what can be powered by the required R.P.M. The fan seems like a good idea.

Hi John,
By the time the hay go's though a chaff cutter, it comes out as horse feed, a heavy bag as you see being carried.

Wonder how many of those little bitty crankshaft noses got twisted off with that rig?

That is an interesting buz saw. That looks like a flywheel down below the saw shaft. Some saws had a flywheel on the pully end of the saw shaft and others didn't. Great picture. Jim Y

That guy at the front is holding up his right hand to show he still has both hands -- even after sawing wood with a buzz saw.

I know I have shown it before, but danish inventor Ellehammer produced this pump specifically for Model T:

... and it actually works:



This pump and model T establish the first motorised fire emergency service across Denmark as Fords where "everwhere" and all they needed in the small townships was a handful of these Ellehammer pumps.

Great pictures. Here's the "Chaff Cutter" again.

John, I think that others have answered your question, but just to clarify, chaff is hay cut into pieces about half an inch long. It is relatively light, and although I can't tell you the exact weight, that bag, on the fellows back would be less than about 80lb. I remember as quite a small lad, carting chaff bags about.

The "All other" is a big statement to make doubt that it held up!
