This is my last of the 4 units I am trying to find out what the model numbers are. I would like to know the model # of the Allis Chalmers Corn Picker. It was bought during the war in 1944. The picture was taken in 1945. My grandfather and four of his sons who where married and farming on their own applied for a permit to get a corn picker because they where being rationed. Since there were 5 farmers asking for one corn picker they were one of the few who got a picker that year in the Seward County, NE area. I'm trying to document all the combines and corn pickers my family has owned since my grandfather and his two brothers bought a Russell Steam Tractor and a Nichols & Shepard Separator. I have already documented all the tractors my family has owned since 1929 when my grandfather bought the first tractor a 15-30. I have all the tractors from 31 farmers past and present for total of 251 tractors. We can't decide what to do with the Russell Steam Tractor. We don't know the exact date it was purchased or what horsepower plus it was only used for threshing. We think it is around a 1912 or a little earlier and around 18 horsepower. We could use this as the first tractor but since it was only used for threshing unless we can come up with some more information about the Russell we will probably stay with the 1929 15-30 as our first tractor.

Allis' official name for this machine was "Two Row Corn Harvester". The single row pull types were available with or without the husking option. Many people have told me they had one with out but when I looked at the picker they did have the husking rolls. As stated by JMS they do not husk well even with the husking rolls.

My Grandfather had the same picker at the same time. He was a friend of the local A-C dealer during the war. The dealer got two pickers in and threw all of the area farmers names in a hat and drew to see who could buy the pickers. Wouldn't you know my Grandfather and the dealer's brother in law had their names drew!

JimIA,
Jim - Thanks for the information you have given me. I really appreciate all the help everyone has given me. That is the only Allis Chalmers picture I have of harvesting corn but if you look under Oliver you can see that I asked the same question about an Oliver corn picker that you can look at and you will also see at that site by mistake I listed a IH pull-type combine. I also listed it under the IH site when I found my mistake. I was asking for some help identifying an IH pull-type that was harvesting wheat in 1945. If you want to see some pictures of my uncles unloading the wagons of ear corn let me know and I can post a few of those too.

My Dad had one like that, bought used in 1951, on a 1947 WC. I believe it had no model number...it was just called a corn picker. That was common back then. Later a slightly improved model was built, and it was the #33 model corn picker. They also built a one-row pull-type which had no husking rolls. The mounted models had combination snapping and husking rolls, but they didn"t husk well.

Dad had one on a WD. Never seen a number or a name on it. Just the same color as the tractor. Left a lot of husks on the ear which didn't hurt cause we ground it for feed anyway.

My Dad had one of these AC pickers that he bought with a 1941 WC. They weren't great at husking but were much better if you replaced the original rolls with HUSKEE rolls from TSC. One advantage the AC pickers had over others of that time was their low profile design which worked much better in down corn. I remember picking corn in the late 60's with ours. At night with the WC in low gear you would have 6" of blue flame coming out of the muffler when the wagon was almost full!!!

Today's Featured Article - On the Road with Dave Gohl: Deere Departed Friend - by Dave Gohl. Have you ever had to part with a dear friend? It's not easy. If it's due to death, your feelings could be in disarray for days, months or even years. Even now after almost 4 years, I still miss my dad. I remember when I was a kid my dad sometimes would tuck my brother and I in at night and we would ask him questions about his childhood on the farm. To this day, it's some of the best stories I've ever heard. And now, I'm so glad that I asked those questions, and if I were a little smarter i ... [Read Article]
