That's a lovely tradition gone, fair play to you and the family for keeping that going
What make is the binder do you know @gone? There is the remnants of an Albion binder in the uncles front garden and he took a notion recently of wanting to pull it out and get it working. I'd love to do it (it was 1 of 2 my grandfather had. Other one is even further gone) but the fact I've never seen them working up close and the fact that parts of the frame are so far gone, I'd nearly be inclined to leave it to see out the rest of its days where it is
It is a McCormick IH binder.
I would be very difficult getting the perishable parts for such a binder and you really need someone who has worked them to get them going.
That's an interesting mad max type machine gone. What exactly does it do?
I posted in the wrong thread and moved the post, so sorry about the disappearance of the post.
It is a very old trial plot combine, very basic not a lot of it left, but it does it job.
A bit of a sad day here, the first time in over 60 years that corn will be sown by someone else.
Is Chris retired now?
That ground is unbelievably dry, wouldn't have a hope here!
Our ground doesn't get that dry in a drought,well I don't think it would ,can't remember what a drought is.
Chris is not that well, hopefully will be back soon.
Irina going in at about 187kg/ha.
That's seriously dry gone! (for today)
Sorry to hear about Chris.
Did john buy that puma? I seen him spreading slurry the other day with it to.
He did indeed, a very nice clean low hours example.
Is it the one jenkinson? Did he trade in the tm or jd. looked clean from the distance I seen it anyway
Yes it is from F Jenkinson, but I'm not sure if he traded anything, but not the JD anyway.
How many border collies do you get to the acre?
No matter what acre I'm in, I tend to have a collie in close attendance.
I don't miss the sheep, but would miss the dog.
One man sowed all the corn for 60 years and the first time he is unable to we get 2 different sowers within one day.
Don't think Chris would be too fond of new fangled drills, show him a pic of a Ford and Massey combo and he'll be itching to go again!
Would make you wonder a bit too though would it not... the little ford and mf drill was obviously able to get it done all that same and look at the cost and gear that is replacing it!?
Neither were sold in the end then I take it gone?
Great conditions there
Almost sold, but as you say neither sold.
