1950 Oliver Combine
We're firm believers in shedding farm machinery and equipment. Here's proof that it pays our 1950 Oliver combine that still goes to the field every year to harvest 50 to 60 acres of grain. I and a neighbor bought the machine 22 years ago at auction for $750. It's still in good shape. We've re-placed drive tires, a few belts and chains, and several bearings. We've never replaced the original motor, which still doesn't use any oil. (Duane Newman, Newman Centennial Farm, Rt I, Newman Rd., Maple City, Mich. 49664)
