At an auction this weekend, I noticed something on this nice original 226 picker.

Photobucket,

john deere 226 picker,

Look specifically at the clutch lever. At first I thought there is a unique farmer added option, so I took some pics. Soon as I had a chance I looked at the parts manual and sure enough that is an original clutch extension for the late styled A. First I have seen.

I too spent a lot of time on a 60 and 227/237 picker, know all about the running on frozen ground, and making sure the mud was cleaned out of the tires at the end of the day. This is the first front air cleaner I have seen like this one,,I still have one for a 60/720 hanging up in the shed looks like new,hasn't been on since 1970....The last time I ran a mounted picker was in 1972 with a 4020/237, what a difference that was over a 60/720....

Picked a lot of corn with a JD 226 mounted on a JD 60 and it worked just fine as long as you kept the drive shafts true and tight and replaced the chain sprockets and chains on a regular interval. We did not have the clutch mod but I can tell you I have banged up my hands many times hitting the right side of the picker so the mod helped there. As a side, many times I would stand up while picking corn to see better and get out of the dust and heat for a period of time. That clutch mode would he a good thing to declutch without sitting down. We eventually went with the JD 227 and Jd 237 pickers which were definitely an upgrade. I had always wants dad to buy the corn sheller attachment but he wasn't interested. I have lot of fond memories picking corn in freezing weather when the ground was muddy and we had to wait until it froze so we could get into the fields as long as it wasn't too high of a moisture content. I would love to spend a couple of hours in a picker with a two cylinder JD picking some good river bottom corn.

Neat pic thanks for sharing. I agree both the clutch extension lever and the GP? with the unique seat are both interesting pieces.

In regards to the clutch extension lever, I guess that was Deere's research and development for changing the length of the lever on the # series like they eventually did- LOL.

Where in Ohio was the auction held? (I live in SW Ohio near Dayton). What did the items sell for?

That tractor in the background looks to me a GP top steer. I would like to have one of those.

Never owned one, but the 226 picker never had a very good reputation here in NC Ia--most got traded for 227's as soon as they came out, then sat on the dealers lot for many years before going to the scrap yard. I'd think a complete 226 in usable condition would be quite rare today. If you're thinking of restoring & showing it,go ahead & buy it. If you want to use it, there are much better choices.

Used a 226 on our Late Styled JD "B" from new (1952), until 1975.. Good Machine..just needed constant attention to the Flat Chains.. You still need to install the Side-Covers on each side of the tractor.. Ron..
