back side, pa used to always harvest sunflowers at an angle.
He said it cut down on harvest losses. We harvest with the
rows now, maybe the new hybreds have stronger stalks

side shot. Pa bought the used truck and new trailer in
1979, it was the first semi for farm use in this area for
many many miles. Neighbors had thought he was crazy, now
every other farm has 5.

Rich,

Yea, they were sweet machines. All this new stuff is nice
but them ole 1400's were the originals, the pace setters for
everything we have now!

This one was my "trainer" first combine i ever ran, I was 8
or 9 when i started.

Lucky duck!

Well, could not think of a better machine to get some
experience on, a vertual technological wonder at the time.
Oh, and well good enough to keep using more or less
unaltered for 25 years.

Take care, hope next season is kind to ya :-).
