Rosenthal 4-20 Corn Shredder

Tue Jul 25, 2006 10:24 pm

I am looking for any information that I can get (real or copied) for a Rosenthal 4-20 Corn Husker-Shredder. I have one on rubber tires but I cannot find much information about it. (Her name is "Rosie")
I have looked at Ebay and other areas of the web but to no avail.
I have some literature on other Rosenthal Corn Shredders and I would consider buying other ones if it is something that I do not have (or is in better shape than my current ones). My friend has a model 40 and a model 80.
Does anyone have a list that pretains to the serial numbers? I do know that they were numbered as they were built. (i.e: different sizes came down the assembly line intermingled)

If anyone has any ideas of where I might look to find what I desire please e-mail me.

Thanks for any help,


P.S. Just talking about "Rosie" gives me the itch to shred!

When I typed Rosenthal corn shredder into the AOL search, it came up with quite a few hits. Don't know exactly what you'd find there, but it may gave you some leads.

Just did a search.. and came up with this stuff:

ROSENTHAL STEEL 40 HUSKER SHREDDER BROCHURE. It is on eBay.. but if you watch it and bid smartly, mostly in the last 1/2 hour or so of the auction, you can get it. If you have no information, it is worth almost whatever you have to pay for it. This is the brochure..

Here is the search string for Page 2... of the search Rosenthal Corn Husker-Shredder THere are 4 links there for the Operators Manual.. I just do not have time to go looking on each ..

Rosenthal Corn Husker-Shredder, 3 Operators manuals there..

It's the "itch" that I remember most vividly about shredding corn. The minute scratches from the dried leaves on any exposed skin compounded by the addition of slight mildew create a fierce itch! :(

Yeah George!
But its a "good" kind of itch!


P.S. I have seen those for auction on Ebay.
