Has anyone seen a picture of a model 1840 SP forage harvester or know of someone who has owned one ? I believe it and the identical Oliver model 840 and Cockshutt 840 was made by White between 1970-1976.

C.H.Wendel"s book Oliver Hart Parr shows pictures of the White-Oliver 830 chopper, the White Oliver 840 SP chopper & the White-Oliver 820 blower. Apparently the 840 could have been ordered with either Chrysler 440 gas engine and sold for $11,400 as the standard, or a GMC 478 gas engine which sold for $11,430, or a Hercules 478 diesel
which went for $12,920. These prices were without the head. The 830 base price was at $2,800, with the pickup at $800 and the 2 row head at $1,550. The 830 evidently had a 6 knife cylinder head and I assume the 840 had the same.

Yes they had the 6 knife head. You could install Fox knifes in them. Of course Fox heads alo fit.

1965 - 1976 we ran Fox SPF & Super D, brother-in-law had an Oliver. Oliver mechanicals and heads were Fox. Only differences were engines and sheet metal and maybe frame.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

I read on a post here somewhere that only 100 of those choppers were made. One was painted as a cockshutt for pictures 6 or 7 were painted yellow for mm and the rest were olivers.

Neat info on the 1820 blower. Wonder if any made it out the door.

Was there any listing or talk of an MM forage wagon?

Never seen an 1840 but I have seen an 1830 at Welters in MO. They also had an Oliver 840 with a cab

Yes, I have seen them, have manuals & sales literature. They are identical to the Oliver, Cockshutt & White Versions. This was the "Rainbow era", where you could buy many of the tractors & implements from White, in most any color & name combination. i.e., MM, OL, CK or White.

The Moline version of those choppers were the model 1840 self propelled and the model 1830 pull type. There was also an model 1820 blower to go along with the choppers. They were painted Moline yellow.

I have the advertising brochure on the choppers, but I don't have a way of posting.

Do you have proof of the 1820 blower? I have see Oliver 820, but never anything on a MM. MM had an older blower made by Kools. This is one of many pieces that I need to prove or dis-prove for the MM product book, but information is hard to come by from this "rainbow" era. Thanks

I do not have any advertising on the 1820 blower. However, it was listed in the first price book in 1968, and probably later. I don't have access to those price books anymore.

Ive seen pictures in literature and a picture of an Oliver one. I was always curious as well. I have a picture of one I saved off of the internet. Maybe who ever owns it will chime in.
