If Husking rollers are shot; be prepared for a lot of work, or let a dealer do it at a lot of expense!

I should have mentioned that I don't intend to do any serious farming with this. It's more of a collector toy--something to hook to my old tractors, and to save them from the scrappers. It may go to an occasional show and pick a load or two just for the fun of it, but that's all. I want to get it working good enough for that, but I'm not staking my livelihood on it! :D
Thanks for the comments.

Well, I bought the two no. 7's. Actually, I bought one and Farmamerica bought the other one, but for now they're both at my place. I'll be working on both of them when the weather gets warm again next year.

My question is-does anyone have any serial no. information on these things? The list on this site only covers tractors. The nos. on these pickers are about 1,000 apart. Just trying to get an idea of how old they are.

Yes it is quite a picker. I removed the 328 husking bed and installed the 329 sheller. Everything is inside a shed and hasn't been used for the last ten years. Have used an 80 hp tractor on the sheller but more power is better particularly after the wagon gets about 50% full. A tractor with 100-120 hp is a better match. The 80 hp works good with the husking bed. Not something that can easily be hauled to a show. Towed this from the dealer about 90 miles, had to take the long way around a couple of smaller towns.

use it once and you're going to want to use it a lot more!

Very satisfying to watch and listen to. With so many gears and chains and sprockets cams and cranks and wheels and slides.... amazing that they EVER worked, let alone 50 years later.

hard to tell you what to look for because there's so much going on.

Best if you can try it out before buying - meaning at least to cycle it. The main components should be obvious - if everything's turning and the lift's lifting and nothing's making horrible noises, there's a good chance it'll work for you.

Just be damn careful near the thing.

A friend of mine lost both his arms and half his face in one of them.

My Amish neighbors all use NI pickers(323) and they have an Amish shop that rebuilds them. A good one here will bring about $2,000

I got this one for 180 dollars. All set up for my 36 inch row food plots. I pick this the other day to dump at another hunting place.
