Default John Deere Binder

Have been working on my 7 ft Welland made binder lately and would like to have a transport set up for it.Factory set up is probably almost impossible to find.Would any one have a pattern for a transport system?

Went to an auction at MacGregor Mb, The guy had a 7 foot JD Binder that sold with a transport. It brought $500, he also had anther JD Binder for parts also with a transport. It sold for $10.00. I'm frustrated with myself that I did not purchase it because I too have a seven foot JD Binder fully restored. Actually just cut the oats with it yesterday.

Ouch! That would keep a guy kicking himself for a while.Were the transport wheels steel or rubber?The wheels should not be too hard to figure out as my binder has the brackets,just not sure how to attach a hitch so that it will pull true without whipping.

May I ask what the deal is with Welland made? I got a 7ft JD horse binder and a steel wheeled JD tractor binder my grandfather bought with a D in '38. I got the transport wheels with the horse binder but didn't get the front dolly trucks for the tongue. I have searched all over for those tongue trucks and they don't seem to be anyplace.

Sometime in the 1940's John Deere started manufacturing binders in Welland Ontario Canada. Not sure if they still manufactured binders in the U.S. after this or not.I have a set of trucks in my bone pile,not sure if they are JD though.If they are you would be welcome to have them although Kansas is a bit of a drive.

All the wheels were steel on the two I seen. I can look in the manual I have for mine, I think it shows how the hitch attaches if you would like.

The hitch attaches by sliding it in a slot underneath, and there is some kind of spring pin locking it into place under the wheel. I'll try if I can get a proper pic.

Jim, if you have a John Deere set and I can possible figure out how to get them here I would gladly pay you but your kindness is appreciated! I got a set for my IH horse binder and only lack the ring that comes up for the lines on it. If we have 56 days of over 100F in Kansas again next summer I may just drive up to Canada to save my life anyway

Chad and Marcel,I have an old manual that is in very bad shape,pieces fall off the pages every time you turn them. It shows the transport wheels pretty good but the hitch attachment is sort of hard to understand.Any pictures would be greatly appreciated.
Avery 22x36 I won't be able to look at the trucks until Saturday,but will let you know what they are.By all means come for a drive. Somtimes it will get that hot here as well but rarely for more than a few days at a time.
Thanks guys

That could be the only option Wally but unless I can get the correct font there probably would be no point in painting it on.

How do you tell the Welland binders apart?

I think it is stenciled " WELLAND ONT." on the grain deflector tin just above the notter or on one of the hitch braces.

From time to time people inquire about binder canvas's.I just picked up a set for mine and am very pleased with them. They came from an Amish gent in Ohio.Excellent quality and only $115 plus freight for the complete set of 3. Also had to get a new tire for the bull wheel and was able to find an off shore tire from a supplier in Nebraska for half the price of a Good Year.
