55 Cub powering a LETZ grain grinder

Tue Feb 18, 2014 7:45 pm

Today I uploaded a video to You Tube of my 55 Cub running a very old LETZ grinder with the flat belt. We were grinding corn for the calves to eat. Had a bunch of family and grand kids here over the weekend, and with the nice sunny Feb day Sunday I thought it would be great to let the kids and young adults watch something being done from long ago. They had a blast. My wife was doing the video, and as you can see the kids were enthusiastic, especially when it came time to sack up the freshly ground grain. :{_}: Click here to watch; http://youtu.be/S7nvkq6fbCs

Yep, the kids sure did enjoy the day. Back when I was that age we considered that work. :lol:

Thanks for sharing with us.

Neat video. The kid's seemed a bit leery of it at first but enjoyed themselves, even the teenager! I like your dual grader blades and the hydraulics, that's pretty neat to!

Not sure what model that is, but it looks close to a model 210. If so i have a manual for it here:

Cool video, when I was a kid the ranch I worked on had a corn grinder that we used when the big corn mill was down, it had a PTO shaft. Thanks for sharing
