Re: Agco cotton harvesters?

In the 50's Massey had a cotton picker mounted on a Massey Harris tractor. They used a design from Rust Cotton Picker. Have a pic in one of my old Massey Harris books. Case also had a cotton stripper mounted on their tractors. http://www.wengers.com/collector/pro...=L%2D747&bg=no Last ones had overhead baskets. They were built until the late 69 I think. Seems to me Case in the 50's also had a Rust picker mounted on their 400 and later tractors in addition to the stripper models.

Check out this thread. The pictures of a picker aren't there (there were some good ones showing the picking units in detail), but the second page explains the difference between pickers and strippers.

Re: Agco cotton harvesters?

Here is a thumbnail for a pic of a picker mechanism. Just click for enlargement. http://www.livinghistoryfarm.org/far...chines_15.html Here is site with diagramming kind of explaining the system. http://www.livinghistoryfarm.org/far...chines_15.html I think on this diagram the doffer may be in a different place compared to the spindle. May be a different company's design than the first pic.
The strippers just used either a couple of steel rollers and later brushes to pull off the plant. There is also a finger header used mostly with narrow cotton I think. The Oliver used the same principle with finger like projections in row units stripping off the cotton like running something through slightly spread fingers on your hand. http://www.taylormfg.com/cottonhead.htm The stripper is used on the high plains I think where they grow more weather resistant crops. This is my understanding. I have had no experience with cotton other than a couple trips through Texas and Oklahoma cotton areas.
