MB trac 1800 429499 48 Unknown implement either
Unknown implement
This is a picture I've taken from a report about farming with MB tracs in Australia.
Does anyone know what kind of machine the picture above shows or does anyone have some better pics of it? Seems to be some kind of a harrow?
Thank you.:-)

Re: Unknown implement
Hello MB Trac 1800 :-)

The machines are left to right, a Gehl forage box, a Hesston Stakmover /feeder 30A & a Hesston Stakhand 30A.

The Stakhand (correct spelling) made haystacks, picking up hay from the windrow & compressing it into a dense, stable mass. Dimensions of these haystacks were 2.4 metres wide, 4.3 metres long & 2.7 metres high.

The Stackhands were very popular in the USA. There were even a few in operation over here in Tasmania, mainly on big stations.

Try Google searching Hesston Stakhand & see what else you come up with ;-)

Cheers,

TC ;-)

Re: Unknown implement
Thanks for these informations.
Amazing dimensions of the haystacks for European farmers. :-)
TC, do you also know the machine shown in the first picture?

Re: Unknown implement
As Reidy said above, it also looks like a land plane to me ;-)

They are a land levelling tool, especially used in flood irrigation areas.

Re: Unknown implement
MB,the landleveler is a graderblade (planierschild) on a long wheelbase to get it as level as possible.
nessesary for flod irrigation (überflutungs bewässerung) where small pieces of land got there owen elevation divided by little dams.
one side is a bit higher to let the water run off after about 2 days into a channal,wich runs cross wise at the end of the field.
same as the supply channel at the other end.

There was sold some Hesston Stakhand hay-stackers here in Sweden to a big "ranch" north of Stockholm. This ranch used to crop and pasture a big military training field.
