    The weekend before labor day we held our annual vintage Harvest. Well attended and Sat night we served 150 people a Harvest Ham Supper with all the trimmings. We have 5 of these old pull type combines fixed up and running plus a Massy Harris 21 of Harvest Brigade fame. We only cut about 20 acres but the wheat was really heavy and made 99 bu / acre. Had to go in low gear and take sometimes a half swath. A lot of the field was lodged and son trimmed it up so we did not have to cut much down grain. Just got the grade tickets back from warehouse today and everything we cut (about 2000 bu) went #1, no trash, no dock. Can't say that about the rest of the wheat we cut with the go fast high priced rotary combines. Was a fun weekend and everybody seemed to enjoy it. All the machines and cats are operated by profesional operators (Old Guys) and the young guys really like to do this and see how Grandpa used to do it. Weekend befor Labor day. 1 1/2 mi. east of Davenport Wa. along US # 2. http://picasaweb.google.com/Headerpuncher/AgTalk?authkey=Gv1sRgCP3-uLzPk5e45AE

    Cats and pull combines, not something you see too often. I've never seen an old pull type working in person. Looks like a lot of fun, the drive would be killer though.
