PTO Powered Corn Sheller
 


Howdy Folks,

I need to shell some ear corn and wanted to know if anyone had experience with one I was thinking something like a John Deere 43.

There don't seem to be any for sale in my part of the country (North Carolina)

If anybody happens to run across one I would appreciate info about it.

Thanks again,

Fordfarmer

Keep you eyes open for one of these. They are definitely had to find, but they are out there. We happened to come across a guy who was selling 6 of them, some for parts, but some great solid machines. The John Deere 43 is the only one that I have had experience with, but they are great in my opinion. We use it to shell enough corn to heat two houses and a work shop every year. We even use a little 25-30hp Yanmmar diesel tractor to turn it. It works great.

I am from NC too and I see some of these from time to time.  I know where one is that is for sale that is powered by a flat belt if you are interested.

The belt drive should work just as well and I would think it would be cheaper than pto.  At least that is the way it is around here.

I'm in Highfalls about 30 min. from Pinehurst.  The belt drive ones are alot more collectible but the pto drives are easyer to hook up and get to work faster. I have one of the mcormic's it does a good job.

Do the mccormick shellers do pretty good if there are some shucks on the corn?

I pick with a NI 309 so there are a few shucks on the ears.
