  • I have been looking for a picture of one of these for quite some time now. My grandfather had a 2 row puller on our 8N that we used for Pea Beans. I don't remember if this is what we had or not as it has been close to 50 years since I'd seen it. I also don't remember what became of it or how it connected to the tractor. I do remember that it connected to the front axle somehow and the three point hitch was used to lift it. We also had a stone shaker windrower that was pulled behind the tractor at the same time. I have no idea who made that. We used a Bidwell bean combine (Batavia, NY) to thrash the beans.

  • it is a bean puller. ive been told some places call it a bean cutter. it cuts dry beans and windrows them to be combined with a pick up head.I am thinking its from late 40s into the 50s

  • I agree its a bean cutter, but maybe they used to buy it and attach it to a cultivator? there are several in the archive discussions.

  • I have a large book Called Assembly and Operating Instructions for Ford/Dearborn Farm Implements from 1939, and I cannot find it in there. It has manuals etc for every piece of equipment ever made. It may have been an attachment for some other piece of equipment or some other brand, but it isn't Ford or Dearborn. However it does say the most commonly used implements so I guess this leaves a loophole. It does list in detail 58 implements.

  • Jimmy-
    That book is just a cobbled together manual of many of the original Dearborn Implement Assembly & Operating manuals but no where complete. There were over 400 Dearborn implements made. Even the Peterson/Beemer book on Ford Implements is incomplete. Like I said, Kelly and Towner are but two suppliers who made implements exclusive to the south and southwest and western areas of our country. I have some original brochures I can dig out and see if there is anything in there.

  • Sam-
    I tried to look in my implement books without any luck, but, it could be a Kelly or a Towner implement. Some implements were made for specific tasks in certain parts of the country and that may be just one. I see a cast raised number on a flank -if there are part numbers on some pieces, we may be able to trace it down that way.

  • Re: bean puller
  • thanks for looking. there are several casting numbers on the piece.so that may work. there are small spots of red paint which is why I thought of Dearborn.and im sure its a regional thing dry beans is a pretty specialized crop they grow some here in the thumb but most are from nebraska and south dakota

  • Re: bean puller
  • Red paint is not a dead give away that it is a Dearborn piece. Massey, International, and a few others were also red. Casting numbers often can be traced at the Henry Ford/Benson Ford Research Center Archives. Shoot me a list of numbers and I will see what I can do. You mentioned 'the thumb' -are you in Michigan too?

  • I live in Caro, Mi in yhe middle of bean country. I would call Dick Coulter Ford in North Branch and ask for Bill the parts manager. He has been there a long time and really knows his stuff.
