Just brought home my latest acquisition. A neighbor had a 1 row IH picker out in his woods. It had belonged to his father and he didn't want to see it scrapped. From what I've been able to determine, I believe it's a model 1-P. The elevator to fill the wagon is currently not attached, but it comes off the left side instead of out the back. Not sure of its age, but it has the old round style IHC logo stamped on it in several places.
Have not done anything to it yet, other than get some tires changed on it so I could pull it home. Just looking it over, doesn't appear to be a lot different from the 2-PR my Dad had back in the 60's and 70's. Apparently they had a good design and stuck with it!
Anyhow, just had to share, and wondering if anyone else has any knowledge or experience with these.
Also posted this in the Combines and Harvesters forum.

Saw a few of them years ago. Most were used with a smaller tractor and had the side delivery todrop ears into a horse drawn wagon or one pulled behind another tractor because they didn't have a large enough of a tractor to pull both the picker and the wagon. Occasionally the Amish around here still use the same type of pickers.

I have one that is galvanized so it is one of the earlier ones. I need to restore it and need some of the old malable gathering chains. Most of the chains are there, need some to splice in.

I had a 1P first,then a 1PR. The elevator on my 1P came out the back. Only real difference between that and the 1PR was that the 1P had a single chain elevator and ran with a long flat link chain that went all the way to the top so that it ran from the top instead of the bottom.

I picked countless hours, bushels with a 1-PR. The
most gentle picker made, would save every ear in
the field. A lot quieter running machine than some
other pickers.

My step dad had an IHC McCormick with a side elevator and had it converted to a rear elevator by a local machine shop in order to prevent mashing down two more rows. I think he had the rolls welded to make them more agressive.

The 1-P was made from 1938 to sometime in the 50's, it originally came on steel wheels, you could also buy a hitch to mount on the side of the picker to pull the wagon along side. From looking at McCormick Deering Horse drawn, the pull type tank picker the husking beds all look very simular, the tank picker and 1-P the husking bed assembly look the same. The gathering part-head of the tank picker and the 1-P also look the same and I would think alot of the part would interchange. Just a note I have a bunch of new old stock IHC corn picker parts for sale including complete loops of malleable chain and splice links and alot of parts for the horse drawn cornpicker from the teens and 1920's

Kevin, thanks for the info. Mine has the wagon hitch assembly--at least most of it. I'm not totally sure how it is supposed to work. I have an owners manual, but it is rather vague about that also.
Mine has all the chains, but they are VERY rusty. I did get several of them off and are soaking them in diesel fuel. The plan is to leave them soak throughout the winter, then see where we're at with them. The rest of it is parked for the winter.
I may have to look you up next spring if I figure out what I might need. I understand you're slightly North of me.

My advise to put all new chains on the picker. I just brought a picker back from the dead. Dont go cheap on the chains and dont buy your flat chain at TSC either. Those old flat chains might look good but they break pretty quick under load.Amish people still use corn binders and they are a good sourse of new gathering chains if u need them
