Restored 1938 John Deere 200 Spring Corn Sheller
Iím a retired farmer and thought your readers would like to see the 1938 John Deere 200 Spring corn sheller that I recently restored. Itís powered by a Waterloo Boy 4 hp engine. I bought the sheller from a retired John Deere block man in Garrison, North Dakota after seeing an ad for it in Green Machine magazine. It rides on steel wheels and is designed to be belt-driven off a small tractor or gas engine. When on display itís shown with the Waterloo Boy engine.

††††Back in the old days, ears of corn were shoveled into a conveyor that delivered the corn up into the sheller. From the sheller the cobs were delivered into another conveyor, which dumped them into a pile or a wagon. The John Deere sheller is very similar to the one found on a 2A hand-cranked sheller that the company introduced in 1938.
