I found this old slide scan from 1973 harvest. Me on the "new to us" 730 diesel pulling the 460 combine that Dad bought at a local farm auction. I sure don't miss sitting out in the weather and dust.

My pull-type combine story is unusual. A little imagination is needed because cameras were a luxury when this history played out.

Dadís 38 C Case, shown here in 2005, showed up on our poor farm about 1950. Among its many uses, it powered two different badly worn, pull-type combines in the early 50s. Dad could fix any implement---because poor farmers had to and because he had blacksmith skills.

The tiny picture shows vaguely the last and larger combine of the two being pulled by the C Case. The last picture is NOT dadís combine but is the same model as dadís smaller combine.

The smaller combine was an IH model 30. It was made to be used behind an F12 or F14 Farmall. The number 30 meant it had a 30 INCH wide sickle!!!! The grain tank was 12 bushels!!!!

The milo we grew was planted on 40 inch rows so this little combine harvested one row at a time. It took a looooo ng time to do our 50+ acres. The dirt, cold, and wind made the job in November very miserable.

Dad acquired the larger combine from a neighbor for a few dollars. The larger combine was an IH model 42óhaving a 42 INCH wide sickle but in many respects was the same as the model 30 so the model 30 became a parts machine. The two snouts on the model 42 were 48 inches point to point. This allowed us to harvest TWO ROWS AT A TIME!!!!! ! twice as fast!!!! Life was good!!!!!

"only 20 miles from the farm" but still probably 350 from my farm. Maybe have to get serious this winter.

I don't know but I doubt it was any bigger. Seems to me it might have been 70 bushels.
That combine nearly drove me crazy. I was an amateur combiner in those days which didn't help. The thing would plug up at the drop of a hat. The reason being that the beater belt would always slip when it hit a load. I don't mean just slow down, it just stopped. In the last year or so I discovered the spray on belt dressing made a major improvement in capacity. I used it on with the 930 for a couple of years. One without cab and then with a cab. So I truly appreciate the creature comforts of a cab after a few years of dust, sun and wind burn, freezing or roasting depending on the weather. I'll try and find a pic with the 930.

I like operating my 400 but would like to find a 460. The 460 had the return and clean grain elevator on the same side of the machine. Also had a bigger hopper. My 400 was only built one year...1965.

Very interesting pic, was the grain tank a bit larger on the pull types without an engine in the way? Thanks for showing, Rod.

I have a 460 with all the edible bean options.Ö.....spike tooth, bucket elevator,etc. They did a great job threshing fragile seeds, but capacity was an issue. I don't think there was a quieter combine ever built! I have eaten a lot of dust using it.

Still haven't picked mine up yet, but getting closer, she is only 20 miles from the farm.

Those are some great pictures! I really like seeing pull type combines and corn pickers in action!
