Thank you Deas for not reprimanding me for putting you in mix like I did. I am berthing better since Neil has not jumped in this and said ties are needed. I am not sure if I have a white shirt or not.

Interesting the air connections (glad hands) on the 2 Ton look the same as those used today. The more things are improved, the more some old things are hard to improve upon.

yep many trucks in aus still use them though most use the ryco style push connect fittings now. i spose it depends what your used to and what the manufacturers fitted to the truck or trailers. part of the reasoning apparently is the push connects can be bumped and release as easily which is likely here as we do have shorter cab to trailer clearances due to having length limits and everyone wanting to maximise pallet spaces on the trailers. well more freight, more money.

and you would use the system that is more numerous in the fleet of trailers you use.

Sixty on "blocks"!   Once a very common sight in the rice fields of Northern California.
Sack sewers behind canvas and great view of the sack chute.  I do not see a "dump" of the sacks behind the machine.  They held sacks in the chute until it was full, then tripped it to dump several in a pile for pickup.
Someone with more knowledge of those combines can tell us who mfg that machine.

I have seen a couple of these machines. Looks to be a Holt rig to me probably either a Holt 45 or 55 engine, I had a friend who cut rice in the Sacramento valley during WW2 with a 60 with blocks and a new John Deere 36. He said when it was wet the harvester would go down and want to skid and the 60 would get all muddled and packed with mud and straw not his favorite job and he was a pretty tough guy!
