    John Deere honey wagon restoration

    I saw this spreader recently at The Hancock Shaker Village Museum near Pittsfield, Mass. Thought you might find this of interest!

    Nice!

    It is either a late model W or N. I think the W was a 95 bushel, but I can't remember the capacity of the N (maybe 110 bushel). The W was a PTO version of the model R.

    Looks like the "N" dad bought new to replace the "H", big difference!

    Dad had an R. It was one of the implements that he would have loved to have been bigger...MUCH BIGGER, but we needed a narrow spreader to fit down the aisle of the hog house. Ten years after Dad quit farming a skid steer would have given that building a new lease on life, being able to clean the thing with a machine as opposed to a shovel. The hog house was about 100 foot long by 20 foot wide and the aisle was only 70 inches wide with 4x4 posts every six feet along the aisle.

    Neighbor I helped had a pair of Deere #44 spreaders. They weren't that much longer than the R but were much wider. With heaped loads they could haul about twice as much as the R.

    I have to get new glasses. I couldn't read the serial number plate. Thanks for posting.

    It makes me feel good to see posts on here that concern old equipment that I worked on as a kid.
