I am trying to find some information and/or pictures of John Deere cotton pickers prior to the 9900. I have seen a 699 in person but not a 499 and maybe a 299? My grandfather bought a 9900 in the late 70's and I am trying to figure out what he had before that one. I know for a fact he did not have a 699. The one he had before the 9900 caught fire and burned up in the field. I know it had a yellow cab but was not the same style cab that was on the 699 and the 9900.
Any help or information that steers me to where I need to be, would be greatly appreciated!
