Rotobaler wheel color

I have a 1948 Rotobaler that has green wheel rims. Is this original..or perhaps wheels from another implement? Was there a color change at some point? Could this even be a primer? There's not a lot of paint left on them but it clearly isn't the same paint as what is on the rest of the machine. Also, there isn't any orange under the green. Swinford's book doesn't go into detail on this. Any information you have would be appreciated.

Stan: Does your Rotobailer have 1 spoke wheel on left
side facing from behind? I have a 1950 I'm restoring, it had the spoked painted the green
your asking about. The right has the solid steel pressed wheel it was orange. Wonder if the spoke
could have been a aftermarket replacement? It is
an F&H cast wheel center. I'm painting mine all
orange. Bob

Bob, Both wheels are the pressed steel type. They look just like the ones shown in my parts book. Unless I find out otherwise, I plan to paint both wheels orange. Stan

I am sure that they never offered a spoke wheel on the rotobalers. The hub they used didn't even have bearings, only bushings. They should be both pressed steel and both painted orange. We have a rotobaler for parts, so if you would like the left wheel we can sell you one. We also have some other parts, if you need something, let me know.

We have 2 and they both have orange rims. The original literature we have also shows orange rims.

Today's Featured Article - Bad Vibes - by Curtis Von Fange. One of the strangest ways to communicate with our tractor is to ask it how it feels. "Ask it how it feels," you say? Yup, ask it how it feels. Now, as with the other articles in this series one has to be able to hear what 'ole blue' is trying to say in response. The nice thing about our old iron friends is that they are usually quite consistent in their response, rather unlike some people I know who might change what they say due to the weather or other mitigating circumstances. But since t ... [Read Article]
