My neighbor gave me this article about a holt experimental combine and an rd7.
His name is spelled similarly hence the scribbling on the text. His hasnt researched the ancestry but feels like there might be a distant connection

Very nice Gary, thanks for sharing.

A little hard to tell a lot, but crop looks to be good so there must be a third person on the "harvester". He being the sack sewer, as the sack shoot is visible on the left side of the harvester. I think I am seeing sacks laying in the stubble behind the machine. And more in the bottom of the swale several passes lower down the side hill.

Sacks where long gone when I grew up, but there is still a sack shoot in the rafters of my barn that came from a John Deere 36b. Which would the same as Holt 36,as Holt sold the combine business to John Deere in the 1930's. From the stories in better yielding crops the sack sewer was given a helper often referred to as a sack jig, to help get the sack full and as the one seen is unfolding a sack to be put the stand to be filled.



I grew up with with combines like this called a harvester, and seeing the manufacture used that name may go back to it. Except that gets people confused even more.

When I was growing up, someone told me that "combine" stood for "combined reaper and harvester", but we all called them headers, because they would head the crop, and discard the straw and chaff. I remember sewing sacks in the '80s but only at the silos and only for seed crops. Had electric sewers that were pretty good

Cheers,
