Farmall C-10 corn picker

Recommended Posts

here are a few pics of what my dad, girlfriend, and i worked on all day. it is a Farmall C-10 single row corn picker for a Super C. there were only 200 hundred or so of these made and it is one of the only ones left in the country. if not the only one. we finally got to mount it today after a couple months of it sitting around the farm. the last time this was mounted was in the fall of 1962. now it has a new home and tractor to power it after 48 years of laying in the original owners barn. we even have the original owners/operators manual. i hope you guys like it 8:30 this morning [IMG]http://i205.photobucket.com/albums/bb260/glennske/picker1.jpg[/IMG] 9:30 this morning [IMG]http://i205.photobucket.com/albums/bb260/glennske/picker2.jpg[/IMG] 12:30 after our lunch break [IMG]http://i205.photobucket.com/albums/bb260/glennske/picker3.jpg[/IMG] 2:00 this afternoon [IMG]http://i205.photobucket.com/albums/bb260/glennske/picker4.jpg[/IMG] 4:00 this afternoon/ all assembled and ready to go [IMG]http://i205.photobucket.com/albums/bb260/glennske/picker5.jpg[/IMG]

Brings back , not the best memories, of mounting up the the model 24, think it was, on the Farmall 'H'. seemed no matter how good I'd block it up after picking I could never drive back in it and just hook it up. This looks to be half on one, well, 2/3 of one including the elevator. Looks cool though, bet it never get through todays 200 bushel corn though.
