Another old Mogul picture

Mon Feb 09, 2009 8:15 pm

I threw this picture at the end of my "501 post" that had kind of run its course. Knowing how people like pictures on here I thought I would put it here. My Uncle ran across this different picture of my Grandfather and his International 10-20 Kerosene Mogul tractor. My Dad or I had not seen it before and it had nothing written on it (which was odd, Grandpa identified everything!). It appears he is powering an auger to move oats? It looks like he is shoveling from the trailer into the auger. Any additional thoughts from the experts I may be missing?

Dave - rather than an auger it is more likely a paddle elevator which had wooden or metal paddles on a flat chain to move the grain.
Those are some great pictures!

Getting to be fewer and fewer people who would actually remember seeing similar scenes live. I sure do miss my dad and his friends talking about the good old days. Pictures like this and live demos at tractor shows keep the memories alive. And don't forget the good folks on this forum helping so our cubs can earn their keep :D
