Finished baling the last of the fourth cutting yesterday. Couple pictures of some of the old equipment that I use just to prove that it can still work. Used the 1970 New Holland 903 speedrower to swath, 1950 case VAC to pull the 1940's international side delivery rake. Baled with the 1954 SMTA pulling an early 1960's McCormick 47 baler.

This is the first time that I've seen a steel wheeled rake with duals.

Real similar to what I use only my haybine is a tow behind with my 300U, my baler is a model 46 on my M and the steel wheel rake is pulled with either my H or F14.

We have an old IH rake like that and 3 old deere rakes about the same era. All on steel wheels.
What is the story behind the dual wheels on the rake? Must be a traction or flotation issue. Since those old narrow steel wheels will slip pretty easy after they are shined up from use.

Dual steel wheels must have been locally popular at least for the international rakes around here. I have another at the other farm and have seen a couple more. Only other thought besides traction or flotation might be for stability on the steep side hills.

I have the identical rake. No duals though. I like the windrows it makes and it picks everything up. Good on the corners too. It quit on me on the last field this year. Something is binding in the rollers at the drive end. One of the "bar holder brackets" wore through and broke as well. I have an IH 15 as a spare, but I hope to have the old steel one running again by next year. My grandfather bought it new in '39 or '40.

No dualled up rakes here in Iowa with our tight soil. My haying equipment isn't anything to write home about either. The mower is a 7 foot 100 series IH on a 88 Oliver. Rake is an old Deere dad bought new in the late 40's. I spent many boring hours pulling that rake back in the 60's. Baler is a New Holland super 67 pulled mostly by the 88 unless the windrows are too big. If I need to creep the 630 Deere goes on it.

On a side note, what a difference between tractors. The oliver's governor reacts with every stroke of the baler where the 630 with it's big flywheel and heavy rotating mass runs pretty steady. I grew up driving a 60 or 730 (Deere) gas on the baler but I have to admit I like the 88 better.

My uncle has a rake similar to that one but without the duals. He also has a couple of JD rakes like it too. One thing I didn't like about those rakes is they sometimes plug up between the reel and the front left side wheel.

What's the old timer on the knoll behind the Case? Real nice pictures; I enjoy them. And also never saw a rake like that. Keep it going. Thanks!
