Neat pictures. I don't believe I've ever seen an Oliver SP chopper. I wonder if they made it? Last picture brings back memories- the kind I would like to forget. Worked on another farm for a short time. They had a new loader (1610 maybe?) on a 1750. I was remarking with my boss about how there were no grease fittings on the pivot points, and they were somewhat sloppy. His father (a real a$$) comes out to the shop. Son mentions to father what I just said. His reply- "who cares"? Short time later old man comes out to shop with invoice from local dealer I had signed. He questions a screwdriver purchase. He hadn't seen any new screwdriver around. I think it was 99 cents. I pulled the tiny pocket screwdriver out of my pocket and said "right here". I didn't last there very long.

Yes,Oliver made their own choppers. Those self propelleds were based on the combine design. Some thought they bought out Fox because the heads and a lot of parts were interchangable. At one time Oliver tried to buy Fox,but somebody at the top at Fox wouldn't allow the sale because Oliver wasn't Wisconsin based company. Crazy.

Nice pictures. I have a 1973 "White is up to something" brochure my uncle gave me when i was a kid. its 95% oliver with a couple MM pictures. Some of the disk/chisel pictures are the same. My brother colored on and tore out the back hay tool pages.

I know a bit about Oliver/Whites (not much on MM) and I never knew or had the slightest idea they had a self-prop chopper.

I have a sales brochure on the MM version of the SP chopper. Never seen one though.
