Today I traveled through Great Bend, Kansas on my way to a graveside service. While traveling through on 24th Street (I think) I spotted what I believe is a Jayhawk stacker.

I didn't have time to stop coming or going so couldn't check further on it to see if it might be for sale or if I could at least photograph it.

I have no need for a stacker, but thought some of you might like to have one for the novelty of it. The current owner might be a collector too for all I know.

If you do go to look further it is west of Main and there is some other machinery there as well. I think at that point it is the north edge of town, east of the ritzy section if you know what I'm speaking of.

Google it; there are several articles. The Kansas State Historical Society's museum has a patent model.

I never realized that they were available earlier in horse drawn models. I've only seen them for tractors.

The one we had was used on a John Deere D. Once we no longer used it we sold it to another "D" owner.

Wonderful item for 3 young boys to climb all over on and to slide down the angle iron and cable.

I'm not sure if Dads was a Jayhawk or another brand, and I wasnt around yet. But what Im told it looks like a giant wooden pitchfork with the tines flat on the ground and the horses pushed it from behind. you would weave down the windrow until full then head to the stack and if you tripped it at the right distance from the stack it would raise high enough to drop on top of the stack then you would back out and go again.
