Thanks for the combine pictures. Same model of Holt 36 I think, one is bulk grain the second is sacking as no auger and you can see the top of the sack shot. I have no idea why the first has no bats on the reel. Also looks like the straw is being left in piles rather than spread in rows. I was told it was to make it easier for cattle to find the grain and straw when being pasture on the field after snowfall. I never saw that practice used in central Calif, but did see it in the Palouse in 1969.

Ray 54 I am like you I never saw straw dumps behind of a grain harvester I have a Cat 36 parts book that shows the dump attachment. John Deere did the same after they got it. When I was a kid I do remember Big! Straw dumps behind a CB Hay. Bean Harvester later on they made smaller dumps that was easier to bale and finally just windrowed it. I am old enough to remember riding up in the dog house on these machines when they were still sewing sacks, a sewer and a jigger and 5 sack dumps I think ,they went to bulk right after that a in a few years Like I keep saying it was a fun time to be a kid. 17afarmer

Rather interesting to note the dress for the gentleman on the 60 and the one getting in the car in the MUD. A white shirt and tie. When was the last time you drove your Cat with a tie, .................... I don't think I ever have.

Hi, Folks.
'Ackshully', that photo of the car being towed from the bog reminds me of someone around these parts of a somewhat more 'exalted' position than myself who has had to be extracted from several bogs due to his ambitions exceeding the capabilities of his 'exalted' foreign brand 4WD conveyance.

Just my 0.02.

You have a wonderful day. Best wishes. Deas Plant.

Ray, you mean you don't operate your machines in a white shirt and tie? For shame! ; )

Hi, Ray54.
I do own a white (T) shirt but have not owned a tie for nearly 50 years - don't see any point in cutting off my air supply just to satisfy some ANCIENT dress code.

Azfer the photo op, any time - WITHOUT the tie.

Just my 0.02.

You have a wonderful day. Best wishes. Deas Plant.
