Oh and I have no idea were I have flogged some of those photos from

The blokes busting a hump chucking sheaths on the truck came from a Weekly Times book back when the paper was worth buying

The black and white photo of the bloke standing staring in awe at all that unbridled horse power was a old truck and bus magazine photo photo I scanned many years ago

And dunno about the rest

Loading hay in small bales was hard enough, let alone chucking the stooks up (is that what they were called?) I do remember my Dad telling me that he used to do that..
Anyway it's now past Frauline Fridee, maybe it's Star Saturdee?

These I may have posted before, but i can't remember! Getting old...
Have a good weekend you blokes.
Cheers
Rich

Some good looking Fraulines there Pro Drive

Stook is what's built in the paddock when you stack a few or sheaths together
It is left to cure and these days is used to make chaff for horse feed

Years ago the whole wheat, barley, oats and what ever else went thru the binder and was tird into sheaths

And before that it was all cut with a sickle by hand the sickle had frame on the back to collect the crop for some other joker to tie into sheaths
Then another group of workers would gather the sheath and buld stooks were it might sit for a week or more before been carted into to build a stack

Any way there is a very good reason we were all skinny once

And who can forget the sheaf toss at almost every country show. (I think sheath is something to hold a knife or put on your willy)



Here are some buxom highland lassies giving it a go.

Pretty sure before that they a winnower that someone cranked by hand while someone the sheaths in

And they used to thrash it by hand use sieves before that

Thats a lotta effort for a loaf of bread

My sister sitting on dad's 1418 in around 1980. He left the family business (JWG Harvey) in 1975 and went to work at International Harvester on the tractor assembly line. Hated working inside so decided to go to Trans West as a subbie. He was tossing up whether to buy a 1966 Preston cab Atkinson from his brother or this Benz from Merko Motors in Geelong. It had been ordered and painted in Trans West colors and then cancelled. He made the right decision. This must have been one of the last ever sold.
