July 4th Weekend 2013 Wheat Harvest…Blast from the past, using one Massing Brother’s 1950 Allis- Chalmers Model 60 combine, pulled by a restored 1948 Allis-Chalmers WD owned by the other brother. Three of us spent one weekend cleaning it up, checking about a trillion grease zerks (really over 60), putting on the old canvas, and making sure the old combine was ready. Everything worked like a new combine! The Allis-Chalmers model 60 was a great machine for its day. Have a future story coming about a gentleman that sold these in the day. Area farmers loved them. It was a great day, zero problems, the ol’ 60 did a better job putting grain in the hopper than a neighbors new John Deere combine…you have to love that went looking at the ground when you leave a field. Other old iron in the field, a Farmall M was used to pull an older grain wagon. When we baled the straw we pulled hay wagons with a John Deere B and baled with an Oliver 1600 Utility and IH 37 hay baler (that is another restore story). Great Day and great time in the field had by all. Tell us about your stories using old iron in a field, we would love to hear them. By the way, here is a quiz question for you…just how many grease zerks on a 1950 Allis-Chalmers Model 60 combine?
