Default Huber Threshing Machine 28-46 Info

Hey i just got a Huber 28-46 Threshing Machine and I was Wondering if anyone knows anything about this machine or has any info. I would like to get a manual too if anyone has one they could copy for me or something. What year was one of these things made. I am guessing 1900-1920 because of the steel wheels but i am not for certain.
Thanks for your time
Jamason

I think that steel wheels were std equipment on all US threshers with rubber tires being an option on the later ones. A couple questions...
1. Bearing type...babbitt,roller, or timken?
2. Pulleys...rockwood,lagged, or plain cast?
3. Wheels...plain flat bands,cast bands, or formed bands with rounded edges?
I used to own and operate a late model Belle City with timken bearings on all the main shafts. It was a very good machine.

I should have asked if you had pictures in the first place. Your threshing machine is one of the later models. I estimate that it was probably built in the thirties. Your machine has a Hart feeder and bagger on it which is a fairly common arrangement.
One of the unique arrangements of the Huber thresher was the wooden box that the clean grain fell into. From there it was "sashayed" into the bottom of the bagger. Almost all other threshers used an auger arrangement to accomplish this.
This unit needs alot of work to be operational again. I would be inclined to look for a second thresher...one that has a sound grain pan, usable pulleys, and good cylinder shaft brgs, then make one good unit out of the two.
Good luck with the project

I was thinking the same thing. We want to take the challege though to get it working. The only thing is all the ones that are listed for sale are so far away. And i would know where to get another one and that would be ND there are hundreds up there abandon. But you know how people are they rather it sit and rot then let some one have it that wants it. If you could give me advice on how to get stuff from people i would greatly appreciate it. Cuz everytime i try I get that i am just a stupid kid BS.

Huber where built in Marion, Ohio. Your threshers looks like late 20's early 30's. I use a 30-50 each year to do the threshing at a local historical society. Just what are you wanting to know maybe I can help you out.

Just some info and the color theme on it. Its to rusty to tell what it was. Also do you have any idea what would be the easiest way to remake the belt pulleys. Cuz as you can see alot of them on my thresher are rotted off.

Being a young kid has actually worked for me to get a lot of stuff dirt cheap. I have always just been polite and let them know I'm not a scrapper and a collector and it usually works for me. Even if they don't want to sell it you may get some good stories or leads to where another piece of equipment is.
