    I remember the shocks in the fields and having to throw them on the wagon with a pitchfork, i wasn't very old then and they made me the stacker on the wagon. Hard work, but not much isn't on the farm. Jack

    ​Reminds me of the harvester I used to operate in the mid '60s---but that was so long ago that I don't even remember the make or model---but it was a diesel motor.
