    227 2 Row Corn Picker for Model A

    We bought a 227 yesterday. We took it apart in front to get it loaded on the trailer. It looks like it's all there. The guys we bought it from said they used it last year. They seemed believable. It is missing the hydraulic ram. My son wants to getting working this summer to use it on his Model A. Looks like it will be a bit of a challenge.

    Anything we should know early on? Any experts here? We probably won't do anything with it until it warms up. Truth be told, I don't know how I'm going to get it off the trailer yet, but I do want my trailer back!

    I'm more of a want-a-be farmer too these days. I guess I'll be planting more field corn this spring. We will have to at least be able to test it out. I'm not too worried about getting it working. I'm more worried about moving the heavy parts.

    When I was growing up we had a 227 picker which we would mount on the model 60. I remember two things about it: it worked well but was a pain to attach, and that it was LOUD. A 60 running darn near flat out deafening enough already. Add all of the chains and cogs of the picker and the chute to that and it was enough to wake up the dead. But it sure made the tractor look cool!
    '50 Model M w/electronic ignition, 12v conversion, and a 3pt conversion plus a homemade snowplow, a Deere Model 51 trailer plow, a Woods RM59 finish mower, a Bark Buster splitter, and a few other toys.
    '69 Sears Suburban 14 48" deck and 42" back blade, an estate rake, and a sweeper.
    '07 F250 XL Powerstroke, crew cab, short box, 4x4.
    '85 F150... I finally sold my very first truck after racking up over half-a-million miles on the original drivetrain.
