    Horse drawn stuff hauled home

    Post by 71ford100 on Sun Oct 14, 2012 9:11 pm

    The museum in Julesburg, CO lost its storage space and had an auction so I attended. The implements didn't bring absolutely squat, a very very very nice all wood IH wood thresher brought 1,000 (I was runner up). Anyways I hauled home a load of stuff and the manure spreader is in my opinion museum quality!

    Nice looking stuff there.

    The hitch on the plow looks an awful lot like the snap coupler connection on my Allis.

    I've only seen one other spreader like that, and it's sitting at an old homestead around here. Those things look tripple tough! What's the scoop on it?

    dude--a first rate shit spreader--i won't be standing behind that one---seriously--do u know how hard it is to back one of those into the far end of the milk barn--ya gotta un pin the draw bar or u'll not get er done--twas a small kansas barn--10 cow stall and that was the only way to get into the entry holding stall--even at 14 1/2 i wasn't gonna carry that crap--i ain't never been real smart,,,,but........the guy i was working 4 wasn't gonna do it either--that's why he hired me--but ya see--i took the tractor certification test--and that qualified me for the "no shit" license ---circa 1969----

    Thought I replied yesterday.....the manure spreader is now inside and it going to stay in my collection I only shelled out three bills for it. The plow is an Oliver "roostercomb".

    What's that last picture, some kind of corn stalk chopper? Interesting turd hearse, never seen one with the front wheels back under it like that and a unique beater bar. Nice scores
