How many of you have the older, larger John Deere corn shellers in your collection? #3, #5, D400 or D600. I am interested in sharing information on any of these shellers. I have some of the manuals for these and would be interested in trading for some I don't have, even copies. I will be restoring a #5 and a D400 in the future and have a D600 for parts. I would also like to make a list of these machines that are left and where they are at. Like a network of collectors. LMK Thanks, Byron

Gene: Do you or anybody have pictures of the corn rollers and/or cob crusher attatchment mounted on the sheller? The cob crushers I have been around were trailor or truck mounted and not powered by the sheller. The last time I shelled into a cob crusher the farmer used his grinder-mixer. A machine shop in Gilman, Il. used to build cob crushers. I think he used spike-tooth cylinders from a Case combine. I had a neighbor that looked at a Cook shekker with a corn roller attatchment but decided not to buy it. Thank you for any pictures/information that anybody can provide. Armand

I have a total of 5 John Deere #6 corn shellers all trl. mounted with PTO drives for hooking to a 60 hp. or larger farm tractor. Only one has the org. John Deere cylinder. The other 5 have upgraded to the after market Cook cylinder for more capacity. From the factory the #6 was rated at 1000bu. per hour. With the Cook cylinder you could increase the capacity to at least 1200bu. per hour. These shllers could also driven by a 8 in. flat belt using a farm tractor or truck mounted. I also have a truck mounted Cook sheller mfg. by Cook Machine Co. in Washington, Il. This sheller is rated at 2000 bu. per hour. By the way I am looking for a flat belt pulley for the #6. Armand

I can remember when new ones came into Wellman,Ia to get mounted on trucks in a local shop. He used a jackshaft on the sheller and a slip-joint off the truck tranny you just moved the drive to the sheller put the truck in high set the gov to run the sheller and away we go later they added a pair of rollers to crack the corn. Also came a cobcrusher to make bedding. There was two in the area i would run from time to time when owners went fishing,hunting. Back still hurts when i think of that heavy one at the front.

There was a Cook sheller at Walnut mounted on a Dodge truck. Quite an impressive sheller. Chris

Chris: Do you have any pictures of the Cook sheller and also the John Deere #6? I was looking at the pictures of Walnut on the cornpicker forum and from what I could see of the red sheller it did not look like my Cook and it also did not look like the woodsided Ottawa Shellers that I worked around. The sheller that I owned and shelled with fron 1966 until 1982 was a John Deere # 6 pto trl. mounted powered by a Farmall 560D. by the way where was the Walnut show located? Thank you for any pictures you can provide. Armand

Go to the corn picker forum and check out the Walnut cornpicking posts. They had a couple of JD shellers running there to get rid of the corn. PTO driven #6 I think. Chris

Some of those outfits appear at the NY Expo. Quite a wild contraption of open belts and chains.

We had a small JD corn sheller when I was about 10 1955 It blew the shelled corn into the truck and had a little elevator for the cobs. It was 3 pt and and had it on a 8N Ford. Was as fast as 2 or 3 could scoop. Made the corn worth 10 cents a bushel more was it a no 6 ? It was new that year. Thanks Vic.

That sounds like it was a #43 sheller. I had one years ago.
