This is for sale just outside Houston. Owner claims it is complete and working. I've dealt with this guy before and believe him to be honest.

Asking $5500. Seems like a lot. C's won't hardly sell at any price as everybody wants Super C's or Super A's.

What's that picker worth? I'd like to have it but can't afford it.

Beats picking by hand.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

That's no lie... first year after Dad downsized (1956) I had to "open" a 20 acre field by hand. As a 14 year old, I was sure glad that was all I had to do.

I believe it's basically the same as one side of the model 24 snapper that was used on a lot of H/SHs. Many H owners in our neck of the woods in NE Iowa had 24s, but I never saw one of these on a C/SC. H/SHs all seemed to have the 24 and M/SMs had either 2M, 2ME or 2MHs with the husking bed.

I have spent many hours operating one of these. A screen along the right side of the engine was a part of the picker package and was an absolute necessity. We did not bother to mount the one on the left although it came with the picker. The nose piece was optional and we seldom mounted it . . . because it was mounted directly to the front pedestal and turned with the front wheel. The nose piece limited the turning radius so much that we just left it off. The front wheel was always on the outside and any stalks leaning in that direction were already knocked down on the previous pass. This is not a picker like you mid west guys think of. It is a corn snapper and does not have husking rolls. Most years corn in the deep south could be left in the field until late September after which it would test below 11% moisture. With no snow in the sucks it would stay dry until the harvest was finished.

Nice setup. Finally someone painted the alternator so it doesn't stick out like a sore thumb. Now, if that was a cotton picker on it, I'd be interested.

That is an interesting and unusual rig, it will attract attention at a show. It's priced for a rich collector, not someone who wants to use it. The seller probably does not have over $2000 invested in it. It's small enough to haul to shows if you can find a way to lower and raise the the elevator easily. The odd wheel spacing and tire directions make it a bit questionable, like it was assembled but never setup to use in a field. I'm surprised there is no divider around the front wheels, or any side screen to keep trash off the engine and ignition.

I'd do a lot of homework before even considering making an offer on it. Maybe even buy a manual for the picker to verify if all the parts are there, you can always resell the manual afterwards. The research might be as much fun as actually owning it.

It is supposed to have screens in both sides of the engine... also there is supposed to be a center snout covering the front wheels..

Assuming good mechanical condition the C is worth 1000-1500, can't see the picker worth 4000, but I don't think there are many of those around. But the "worth" is the agreement between the buyer and seller.

it also still has the steering arm mounted above the front tires, either for a mounted plow or planter.

The two disk plow had a stearing arm that mounted to the left.

I think that arm is on backwards. On the H and M it points to the left as it connects to the land side of the rear wheel.

Was ok back in the day with small populations, but would not work well with the populations they plant today.

I have seen one before, the owner said it did a real good job picking. But slow. You have to have long axles on the tractor to mount it. The standard axle is too short.

We ran ours in second gear in corn up to 100 bushels per acre and that would be about 3.5 mph. I don't think todays corn populations would give it any trouble.

Wheels set for 38" rows are standard and the picker would set inside it fine. I speak from experience having mounted one many times. Standard axels for a C had 2" extra on each side.

Yes my dad as a kid bought a C with extended axle for the picker... probably not to many long axles around anymore
