Default Wisconsin engine on first Texas rice combine

I'm trying to find out more about this farm machine. The photo is labeled 1940 combine and is reported to be the first rice combine in Texas. The story behind it is that the farmer brought it to Katy, Texas in 1939. I can find nothing that looks like this and from looking at, cannot see how it would work - I can see that there is a place where maybe grain could be threshed and held - but cannot figure out how it would be collected. I need to identify exactly what this is, and how it worked. Thanks for any help!

You can see the end of the header at the left of the picture and the grain bin at the right of the picture. It looks like a pull type combine.
