Here are some pictures I took off the internet only one mine, the one with my Dad and his Bro.. I didn"t know until recently when I looked closer at my Grandpas header that it was pushed by horses. The header followed the binder and before the combine. My dad said they hauled the heads to the Avery thrash machine . Later my Dad and his Bro. mated the header to the thrash machine and pulled it with a Cross mount Case tractor. This was in the 20"s

Dad grew up in central Kansas and I never heard him talk about using a header there...They threshed wheat out of the shock until about 1926 and then they started using combines in 1927..

I have a couple of old post cards similar to the ones shown here with headers being used..

My dad used to talk about using headers in the 1930's, during the drought. Apparently a couple of those years, the crop was very short but headed out and filled, so a binder would not make a bundle in that short crop. They cut the crop directly and elevated it into a wagon to be threshed. Must have been a joy to pitch that stuff into a threshing machine, maybe more like a shovel.

Friend of mine has one that belonged to his grandpa. It is like the last picture, Plano I think is the brand name. It was in pieces in a barn and he put it together and had canvass made for it. A friend of his has draft horses and he had them push it. We made a header wagon to collect the heads. I hauled my Case 22-37 thresher to his farm and we put on a harvest show. We ran the header, collected the heads, and threshed them thru the Case thresher. Fun time had by all!!
