Redpainter 110431 103 beater system instead of walkers either
beater system instead of walkers
You can see one of the many beaters which were in place of
walkers on hillside combines of the time (an old system used
on early California combines and other hillside pull types).
They would throw the straw around and wooden slatted raddle
chains would carry straw as it fell toward the rear and
bottom of straw raddle would carry grain toward front of
shoe on metal pans as the wooden chain would return.
