Found what looks like a parts manure spreader. Probably is, what's left is pretty solid! I'd like to save the parts but would like to know what model it is too. Even the wood is in pretty good shape. I apologize for the crappy phone I own.

Make an offer and I'll pass it on to her. FWIW I told her she might be able to get $100-300 for it. If that's out of line let me know (or if it's worth alot more then I'm sure $300 would make her happy, she's retired). I sent her an email earlier in the evening going over this thread. I'll be glad to help coordinate for you folks. If you need better pictures let me know. I will say that the side not well visible in the picture does NOT have the original wood sides. Someone put a sheet metal higher catch there. It was upside down when I found it so I really just took the "top" picture while holding it up. What is there is in good shape. There is a split in the wood near the gears, and I honestly didn't look it over too too much, but I was impressed with the overall condition. Depending on where your buddy is I could even deliver it to their shop. I live in York county but I get over to Lancaster often. I also travel to the center of the state a few times a year.
I think I just set my email to visible if you want to reach out there.

Both pictures are the same piece, just both sides. I took the closeup of the feeder because I thought it was unusual to have wood bars in such good shape if it had been used for manure as I though (and I'd never seen one with wood bars for that matter). Sadly all that's left is the feeder, the rest of the implement is long gone. It's in the barn at a farm I'm working this year and the owner said she wanted to get ride of it. All that's in the barn is this, an old steel ground driven wheel, and a later all steel conveyor. I told her I wanted to find out what it was first so we could try to find someone who might need the parts. I'm sure she'd be glad to take an amount for it, and I'd be glad to save it for someone who can preserve another one with these parts. Lewisberry Penn.

Hello, So what do you want for it? I have a amish machinery rebuilder from Penn. coming to MN this fall to pick up a IHC horse drawn corn picker in SD. He could bring it to MN for me.

THAT is a VERY expensive piece IF one buys it in good condition. There are likely 10+ operating binders in good shape to one operating conveyor. I paid $1,500 for a OPERATING (I watched it work before buying) binder, the conveyor, and front truck.
Buy it, fix it up, and sell it, if you don't want it. Youll be well repaid for your labor. The Amish Hunt for these with a passion, and they have English buyers out at sales looking for them.
No doubt, theres such buyers that check out this forum

The Second picture is bundle carrier for a McCormick Deering Corn Binder that in laying on its side. What are your plans for the carrier? Where are you located? The item in the first I need a few more pictures of?.....Do you have a picture of the carrier from the other side?

You're absolutely right. I saw the chain and bars and never thought of anything else. Based on that information it looks just like a IHC someone has in good order. Thank you!

Can't tell much from the pictures,but I don't think it has anything to do with a manure spreader. Just from what I can see,I'm gonna say it it's a bundle carrier for a corn or grain binder.
