Some thing different
 
I know I said I would post pictures of some of the tractors we get in for parts, but I thought this time I would show something just a little different.

This is a model 91 IH combine. It doesn't have a steering wheel, it uses "tiller bar" steering similar to a dozer. It is different though, when you pull the tiller bar back half way, the coresponding wheel stops, all the way back and the wheel spins in reverse. Rather than just a steering clutch and brake setup like a dozer, it has a planetary gear set that when the steering clutch is released and the steering brake engaged turns the wheel back wards. Quite interesting to drive! It will rotate around it's axis, pretty cool!

Looks like an interesting exhibit for tractor shows. You got me thinking I need to ask my dad about grandpas combine...I swear it looked just like that. Was the tiller an option? Memory tells me grandpas was a steering wheel.

Fabricate a sickle bar on the lower front of the header, and you got biggest ZTR mower on the block! :bannana:

JDA, the model 91 was always tilelr bar, but they also had a model 93, very similar but had a steering wheel. I think it was a little higher capacity too.

Mow, old combines are pretty popular for mount snow blowers on, lots of power and no turning around to look over your shoulder. ;)

My neighbor had one a few years back with a 12' blower on it...it would throw snow, stones and small animals clear into the next county.. :D

I thought I'd bump this post for those who hadn't seen it before. ;)

Thanks...

I hadn't seen it, but that's cool.

I grew up on and around cash crop farms in Southern Illinois. And my family (my mom's side) are all Farmall/IH fanatics. I don't remember grandpa or my uncles ever having a model 91 (or 93), but it still brings back some great memories...
