    Help identifying something green from the old shed

    Can anyone help identify the old cast hub in the attached photos? I picked it up out of the field (where there was once an old shed) this summer and after putting it to the wire wheel yesterday the green paint emerged, as well as the part number "PK1941-H" and the "D", which together with the color says John Deere to me. It's about 4 1/4" tall and 5" in diameter. I'm new to the forum so I'm not sure if I'm in the correct sub-forum. Any help is appreciated. -- Bill in Kansas

    Awesome! I looked the other day and never could find anything about it.

    Does it say specifically what it is? Looks too small for the wheels.

    Thanks - I knew someone would know what it was. Now I'll show I'm not a JD guy - is the model 30 combine an old one? Is the old hub of any value to anyone, other than as a trotline weight?

    From what I can find, they were built from 1956 until 1960. They were a pull type, which means they had to be towed behind a tractor. Running, operating units sell for $500-800 on average it looks like.

    If somebody needs that particular part, it's probably worth a few bucks because I'd bet there aren't too many out there. There's probably not a big need for it though, since most pull type combines have been phased out long ago. You might find a hobby farmer still running one, but would they ever put enough hours on it to need that part?

    As I recall, the 30 combine had either a six or seven foot platform, which by today's standard is pretty damn small They were available with either PTO drive or with an auxillary engine. There were not many of them around up here in the mountains of NE Pennsylvania. Two fo my Dad's customers had them and both did work for other farmers. Most of the farms were around 100 acres or less with half of that being forested or rocky side hills. Now, most of them are gone, unfortunately. I have seen in Green Magazine that some people restore old implements. Like 56fg said, if someone were restoring one, it could be invaluable. Otherwise, it could make a nice candle holder.

    I think that someone said that it is also used on the 40 combine, which, I believe, was a real small self-propelled, and the 42 which replaced the 30 as a small pull-type.

    Thanks, I really enjoy going back to that part of my life.

    Thanks again. I will put it into service as a candle holder. Now that it has been identified and become part of Google, anyone ever looking for one on the internet should be able to track it, and me, down. happy holidays to all.

    In the early 50s the JD dealer in Sidney NE brought a 45 self propelled and (probably) a 30 pull behind along with a then new 60 all painted OD green to harvest our wheat. I remember the tractor had a large use timer on it and was cautioned by my Grandpa to not turn on the tractor switch because that would mess with their data. Guess what I did later that evening just to see if the wheel would move... it did. IIRC that little combine had a cylinder that was as wide as the header and it worked pretty well. I am in the process of restoring a 60 now and someday plan on finding one of those combines. I have a collection of the JD toys from that era and would like someday to match the toy collection with the real items. All it is going to take is a lot of time, money and a bunch more land for me to put them on.

    hey drhutch, a model 30 looks real sweet behind a 60, i still see them at auctions here quite a bit, if your willing to beat back the scrappers, then around here, you can pick them up for a couple hundred bucks. They are cool. The next thing you will need is an old 235 ish mounted corn picker for your 60 as well, but caution you, if you dont have power steering on your 60, you will regret the corn picker, and that pull type combine isnt much more fun HAHA i have a couple complete ps units for the 60/620 laying around. There is an ol gal down the road that has a 30 pull type in the hedge row behind her house, maybe ill try to snag it for ya, but i am not delivering lol
