Default John Deere binder info

I would like some help gathering information on John Deere binders (years of production, prices, dating information, etc) I'm trying to put together a page with a brief history. I would also like to find out the age of the four John Deere binders we have on display at the museum here.

I guess they would be platform binders, but I haven't seen that terminology used before

Your binder is probably a Welland made unit from the forties.John Deere built the light running binder from 1923-1952. The rubber tire grain wheel with cast iron center and seperate rim was from 1936-1950and from 1950-1952 a one piece wheel was available. The bull wheel had a 2 piece wheel /tire from1938-1947 and from 1947-1952 a single wheel/ rim was used. This info comes from another site and was sourced from JD parts book PC-W8-11-52. I have a 7' Welland ground drive 1947-1950 [one piece bull wheel and 2 piece grain wheel] that I will be using in a couple of weeks to cut oats.

Could you help clarify a little bit. The pictures on the first page of the document are representative of three of our binders. The picture on the second page shows how the fourth one differs.

I would say that the three binders represented by the pictures on page one would be 1950-1952 and the one on page 2 would be 1947-1950 .I assume all of your binders have the one piece bull wheel.Are they all 7 ft. cut?

On my Grandfathers JD 10 ft tractor binder that he bought new in 38 with a D, it has a steel bull wheel just like the ground driven ones minus the lugs. Also, I notice the occasional rare ground driven binder with a wood tongue fastened like an IH model instead of the normal iron frame going to the fore carriage. I didn't know if those were factory or farmer made? Thanks

Try Lynn Miller at The Small Farmer's Journal. He has a great deal of information.

What year is this John Deere binder? It is horse drawn, ground driven, and 5' cut.

I don't know what year but you should look around for a tongue truck just incase its there. Looks very much like one of mine that is complete minus the main bull wheel chain.
