Took my Super 77 and United Farm Tools/Oliver #5 picker. There were 43 pickers,last I heard and we picked 50 acres at Kevin Larkey"s place that He had planted in wide rows.
Kevin is an Oliver guy and has some nice ones!
See if you can identify the big guy unloading wagons for the sheller.....We had a gooood time!

What a lot of people don"t know is that the fella on the Farmall H in the picture with me brought his equipment from Hutchinson, Kansas just to pick corn with us. About 600 miles.
Another fella with a mounted IH picker with a white elevator was from Ohio.

Kruser, yes that is Kevin's tractor and mounted picker. That one graced the back cover of the HPOCA magazine.
The 1650 narrow front with the pull two row unit is also Kevin's. In fact, Kevin once told me he has 11 pickers, MOSTLY Olivers. He also has a WHITE and a M-M corn sheller, both built by Oliver. And Oliver plows, planter, field cultivator, disk, pull type combine, etc. A serious collector. Oh yeah, and a bunch of Oliver tractors.
