As well as collecting vintage GTs and Antique Allis Chalmers Tractors (3, 1942 WC on rear steel, 1947 WC, 1951 WD) we also collect antiqe farm implements. Currently we have a 1937 New Idea Hay loader, a John Deere #1 horse drawn mower, a IHC single bottom steel wheel plow (unknown number) another IHC steel wheel single bottom plow (model # unknown), a John Deere 2 bottom steel wheel horse drawn plow, a Mc Cormaic Deereing steel wheel horse drawn Manure spreader, 2 walk behind horsed rawn cultivators, and a walk behind horse drawn single bottom plow. Currently trying to make a deal for a 8' horse drawn drop rake.  Here are a few pictures. Some are restored and painted some are waiting to get done. Thanks Roger.oldequipment 031.JPG oldequipment 033.JPG oldequipment 035.JPG DSCF2709.JPG july2011 020.JPG DSCF9193.JPG IMG_2820.JPG manurespreader3.PNG

Great looking collection. The WC's and WD are good tractors. When we had a farm in the late 60's and early 70's, we farmed with 2 WD-45's and an Oliver Super 88 Diesel. Gotta love the live PTO and Hydraulics thru the hand clutch.

Now its been awhile since I've seen a WD with shutters on it. Good looking bunch of equipment you got there. :thumbs: Glad to see some more history saved from going across the scale.

 

I was raised on old ACs. Between my dad, brother and me we have 4 1/2 WD-45s (the half is a project my dad started in the early 90s), a WD and 38 unstyled WC.

Very nice collection!  I know where three old steel wheeled manure spreaders are sitting for a rescue.

That first 2 bottom plow has one rubber wheel. Why would that be?

Probably trip lift, that's the drive wheel that does the mechanism

Nice herd, thanks for the pics.

That one came to us that way. I t was pulled on a tarvey (gravel and tar) road here and had to have rubber on the wheels to do so. The PO took tread off a tire and bolted it to the steel wheel. Before we got it the other original wheel had been stolen. I had to find a replacement for it. I see I missed posting a picture of the hay loader. Will get that on here later.  Thanks. Roger

Nice Collections Roger.  I think it is great that history is being preserved and I always enjoy looking and learning about old equipment and their uses.  I wondered about the rubber wheel as well Thanks LilysDad for asking.

I still plow with a JD 2 bottom ground lift plow.

You have a nice collection. How does the single bottom plow work out for you behind the garden tractor?

I had heard of hay stackers before I knew anything about hay loaders. Are they the same machine? ( Hay stackers made a large and tall hay stack in one place.

This one is towed behind a hay wagon, behind horses. It picks the hay up and moves it up the loader and onto the wagon whaer it is layered by the poor guy with a pitch fork. I was watching the Amish here a few years ago and they really make it work. From the wagon to the hay mow in the barn. This one needs new boards on the rake part that rotates up the hay. They are made of oak and are hard to find. My BIL has a mill and he said he will mill me some pine boards (real 2" X 4" boards) Once I have them we can resore it. They actually still make the rake arms for it still.  Roger.
