Default Antique Combines At Work June 28th Near Achille,OK

On Sat June 28th I attended the Golden Harvest Day show on the Esbenshade farm near Achille,OK.The highlight of the show was seeing all the old combines in action.

This is an action packed one day show that was well worth the 400 mile drive to see.

Some great pics , super 27. I've never seen an IH 125 (I guess) with the low bulk tank except in a pic from France. The 55 reminds me of my uncle's except it had a Dave Niel leveller added in Garfield Wa. Ours had a longer rear cowling probably due to having a chopper on the end. Like the Case 1000. I used to be curious about how they were built since Case went to the Harris for hillside. The cat walk from the seat to the motor was unusual but handy though you had to step over the (spout) unloading auger to get back to the engine. An idea used by Deere on their 95H's of 58-69 and added on to many IH hillsides in the 60's and 70's. Alot handier getting off and then climbing a ladder to the engine. The 92 Massey reminds me of our neighbor's old super 90 with farber leveller. My dad always talked about how he had a wild ride across a steep hillside when he got the variable speed in a neutral spot that he didn't know about. There used to be an AC 100 in Moscow, ID till about 7 or 8 years ago. I think a seed company had it. Wonder what ever happened to it. Also were a couple 101 IH's. We had 2 151's and I had enough of them (not bad combines) to have much interest in those old machines.

Great pictures super27. A few months ago on RFD TV channel they had a video of this exact farm show from two years ago. It looked very neat on tv and in your pictures, im hoping to make it down to that some year.

Anyone see something amiss on the JD 55?

This is trivia... try and find a black problem.

That's the only thing I could think of, but I didn't say anything because I didn't really find it amiss. Backwards drive tires are common in some parts of Oklahoma; helps with backing out of mud holes.

Yes it would be the backwards tire!

Generally, we try and not get into mudholes... though we need traction going forward, out here!!!
