In 1944, my father bought a used Case pull type combine with a six foot cutter head. It was driven by a Wisconsin engine and had a bagging platform on it. I found very little in "The Grain Harvesters" about Case combines. Does anybody have any idea what model that was, or where I might find more about it. Thanks. C.L.

Do you have any pictures you could post. I'd like to have a scrapbook/album of the equipment that my father had. The few actual pictures we had got lost in a flood. I'd like to have something that the grand kids might look at relating to their great grandfather. Thanks. C.L.

Hey CL.
Go to the info boxes to the left of your screen.
In the Galleries box, click on Implement Photos.
Go to the search box and type in Case A-6
There is a picture of one there but has a bin instead of bagging platform.
I know its not much but a place to start.
A-6s were made for many years with many changes.
Some galvanized, some painted, some had high bins, some low, some motorized, some pto, some were rounded, some square.
Same with grain bins in that some were round and others angular.
I wish I could figure out how to scan my literature and post for you guys. Ande is still waiting for the Case experimental combine photos I promised.
CL, if I knew exactly which style A-6 you had then I probably have an extra sales brochure I could send to you on the exact machine. Lots of neat pictures in those things. Bought used in 44 should narrow it down.

Sounds like I win both ways !

I'm still planning to figure out that darn computer. Problem is, it ranks right up there with going on a diet or quitting smoking.
I keep finding better things to do. (I don't smoke but I could use the diet.)

Thanks for the reply. I also googled Case A-6 combine and found illustrations that resembled the old case. I would guess the combine was a mid to late 30s model. I think Dad bought it in the Texas mid-coastal region. Rice was switching from threshing machines to pull type combines in 1944.. I was six at the time and remember that they sacked the rice and hauled it to the warehouse. Rice dryers were being built, but I don't know if they were operational in 1944. In 1945, Dad sacked the rice, hauled it out of the field and dumped the sacks in the grain bed of the trucks. The following year, he was able to obtain a MH 21 and used the auger wagon to get it out of the field. The pictures look similar to the old case. I didn't remember the engine being located on top until I saw the pictures. I remember some farmers having the larger pull types with the tall grain bins that unloaded by gravity, I-H and MMs, as I remember. I don't remember seeing a SP before 1946, though I heard Dad talking about trying to find one.
