Looks like a chevy chassis. Another wood cab, thanks Jay.
Yes, it does. A real workhorse!
That was the first Nabisco shredded wheat cereal company attempting to stuff all that wheat into little boxes.
Any thoughts on the tractor?
If only to me that looks like a old stationary bailer bailing straw? Bud
I thought the same thing Bud. Is that a belt I see coming from the fordson? That is why it is back so far.
Bud, Dallas, yup ! Hay or straw ? I'm thinking hay, if that was a grain crop wouldn't most of the straw been have burned in the steam traction engine that pulled and ran the separator ?
Reminds me of an expression I haven't heard for a long time - when everything is fouled up and not working right, it's "Gone all haywire. "
Yup it's belt driven and the longer the belt the easier is to keep on.I have never handled those bales but i'm told they were very heavy .Bud.
Rich,Mostly out west where there was little wood there were steamers that burned straw but you need a very long belt.Usually at a steam show at night a engine will be belted to a pony brake and while it's pulling hard straw or sawdust is added for a spark show! Bud.
My guess is hay as I dont see any. Rows in the stubble as wheat or oats would have. They surely would have included the threshing machine in a photo.
Ma dropped her favourite needle in there- thats what their lookin' for!
Looks like a Mid production (1920-23) Fordson "F" with square bottomed tool box fenders?
Too dark to be straw.
They’re walking on it without sinking down much. Must be hay. Looks like clover.y
