Re: Case IH magnum pulling a Case IH cotton picker
Hi Richard,
very beautiful pic! Do you know why Magnum is pulling the
cotton picker? Is it broken, or is it too much slow for move
itself on the road?

Re: Case IH magnum pulling a Case IH cotton picker
You know I'm really not sure, I wouldn't think that the
picker would need to be pulled anywhere, it probably has the
same road speed as their grain harvesters. My guess is as
good as yours? Could simply be that two pieces of machinery
had to moved by one person.

Re: Case IH magnum pulling a Case IH cotton picker
Ok Richard,
i thought neither more nor less than you thought too, but
i'm interested to the possibility to pull on the open road a
such kind of machine: in Italy, i suppose because the roads
are smaller then USA, it's forbidden to operate in this way.
You must load the machines on a truck's trailer if you want
to move it, i find this way better for the traffic safety.

Re: Case IH magnum pulling a Case IH cotton picker
I am not sure of the traffic rules for moving equipment in
the U.S., although I'm sure it varies from state to state.
With the exception of major highways, I have not heard of
any such regulations in Ontario, there are always large
harvester moving about the rural roads (less the grain
heads), this is the first time however that I ever saw a
harvester being pulled by a tractor without a float. As far
as I know you just require a slow moving vehicle sign and
are required to stay as far to the right as possible.

Re: Case IH magnum pulling a Case IH cotton picker
I would bet that the engine or hydraulics went out on the
picker. I live in Arkansas and it is not common practice to
pull a piece of machinery like this. I also notice that the
picker's basket is not lowered into the transport position
which also indicates a loss of either engine or hyd. power.
