    Re: harvest in the 50's

    No doubt that it was more physical work than today but by and large they were happier times. Firstly, you were rarely on your own. Always plenty of people working on farms and that made, generally,...

    Re: harvest in the 50's

    And Jack, do you remember how we used to cut the strings to tie the bags up with ? We used baler twine (binder twine is too thin on the hands :() Grab the end of the twine out of the spoolin the palm...

    Re: harvest in the 50's

    Jack, most of us get forgetful as we get older. I know I do. No need for apologies. But the little 735 was for small acreage farmers and in fact I know of a dairy farmer who used to grow about 30...

    A friend of mine used to say that his gaffer had a bagger combine and that he (my friend) was the silly bagger who had to sit on it ! :D

    Re: harvest in the 50's

    Sorry Jack but the combine is not a 726. They were a much larger combine and had totally different air boxes. It's a little 735.

    Re: harvest in the 50's

    I will admit that the drum is debatable but the 5 gallon oil can of the 50s was a square metal affair with flares leading up to the top. I think the Thermos flasks back then had smaller tops.

    Re: harvest in the 50's

    They were certainly less complicated days. I walked into my village post office when I was 14 years old and bought a shotgun licence over the counter. 10/- or 7/6d, can't remember. It was a .410...

    Re: harvest in the 50's

    Sorry but I am deeply sceptical. The little MH 735 combine is a bagger but I spent many hours on a 726, 780, & 780S baggers and there is no way you come off one of those looking as clean as those...

    I've said it before and I'll say it again. I truly believe that Theresa May is a decent human being but she was the wrong person in the wrong place at the wrong time.
