really great photos, love seeing these , wish more were posted. things were so much different then. in 1991 we were in montana and caught up to quite a few harvest crews in a liilte town as the wheat was yet to green. i think we counted around 60 total combines. it was on Hwy 212 in the southeast part of montana. broadus or hammond maybe?

Man those pics bring back memories. In the summer of '72 I went on the harvest with Dale Starks' crew from Manchester, Okla. Started in Iowa Park, Tx and ended up in Cutbank, Montana. Had 6 Massey 510's and 8 Chevy bobtail trucks.
I had a Polaroid camera and took tons of pics then but being a snot nosed kid of 18 I lost them over the years.
Thanks for posting the pics!

Great old pictures, we ran a 410 massey back in the early 90's . Looks like all the combines have extra gas tanks to make it through the day.

This crew was R.W. Jones out of Shady Bend, Kansas, but yes part of the large family of custom cutters from around the Lincoln area. The other three brothers were from the Barnard area which is north of Lincoln. The first bunch of pictures where taken near Sturgis, South Dakota. The others with the MF 750 were the homeplace south of Shady Bend and for neighbors right close by. I'm the young boy on the left in the family picture in the trailer house. The one with the great smile. Just joking. I was told that between the Jones Brothers and all of there kids along with nephews like Mike Louder, the family as a whole order 73 new MF combines that year. I know we ordered seven from our side of the family. Three for my grandpa R.W. Jones, two for my dad Dick, two for my uncle Steve. All seven where gear drive 750's. Our parents never had to worried about Christams gifts in those years, MF would send out a truckload of Massey Ferguson toys for us to play with. Those truely were great days for our family. The pictures with the five were when dad and Granpa would cut together. Uncle Steve
would join us on the realy big jobs.

Great pictures, especially like the "pass quietly driver asleep" on the mud flap.

Is that Bear Buute in the background, must have been dirty without a cab. I remember the cold days and nights picking corn with a 510 and that worthless box heater in the cab!

Those are some interesting shots. I wonder if they ever made it up as far north as Saskatchewan? I remember seeing some custom cutters running Masseys back in the late sixties up this way.
And I can't imagine ever getting cold in the cab of a 510 Massey. That 350 Chevy at my right elbow put out plenty of heat as I recall.

I went on the harvest in 62 and run Super 92's. Wonder what the life span was on a machine used like that. You have great pictures.
