Old Agricultural Equipment
Description:
NB: Please read the requirements before posting as changes and additions have been effected as of January, 2021.
This is a place to catalog old agricultural equipment from years gone by. These can be plows, harvesters, threshers, seeders, balers, etc. that are not from the modern era (pre-1970). There is a lot of interesting old machinery sitting around in fields and museums.
Expanded Description:
This category shall include any and all types of agricultural equipment, the older the better. Much of the machinery you encounter may be found in farmyards, museums or abandoned in fields. The idea is to see how many different pieces there are and where they can be found.

Should you encounter a farm implement you can't identify, contact me and I may be able to help.

Following is a list of historical and informational articles from one of the best online sources of information on vintage implements, Farm Collector Magazine.
Instructions for Posting a Old Agricultural Equipment Waymark:
Exclusions and Inclusions:
This category WILL NOT accept:
With the recent creation of the Household Appliances and Presses category it is necessary to stress that certain items previously accepted here should now be submitted to that category. Specifically (for home use only), small household implements used in the preparation or preservation of food stuffs or drink need to be submitted there. Examples: Small grape crushers, juice presses and cream separators. Larger, commercial sized examples are still accepted here.

Any implement manufactured prior to 1970 and directly involved in agriculture, ie working the land, continues to be acceptable here. Admittedly, there will be appliances and/or implements which will require a judgement call, but most will be judged to fit in one of the two categories.



To post a new waymark you must include at least 2 photos of the implement along with a description of the function you think it might serve. Should the implement be accompanied by an informational sign or plaque, a third photo is required, that being a legible photo of the sign's/plaque's text. The photos must clearly show the piece of equipment you are waymarking. No distant drive-by pics please. If you can determine its approximate age, manufacturer and model that would be great.

Try and gather as much information about the equipment as you can and include it in the description. Details on its usage, ownership, history, etc., help give others a background on the item. Please take the time to search the implement for a manufacturer's name or logo. Logos are often embossed on cast iron parts or on sheet metal parts. Names and logos are often stenciled in highly visible locations as advertising, but can become severely worn and faded.
Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
To visit a waymark please post an original picture of the equipment and a short description of your experience.
