Default New Idea Corn Picker

This picker sells ina few hours. Need to know if I should buy it or not. I had a man tell me that he wanted a picker for IHC that had the shucking rolls at right angle behind the rear wheels. Could this be it. Did IHC make a picker of their own that had said style rolls ? Email a phone number if interested. Junk men close by.

New Idea made their picker to fit all popular row crop tractors by all makers. Mounting brackets being the only difference. Those can be easily made by any competent welder.
Don't let it go for scrap, that one looks to have been kept shedded so should be in good shape. These are getting popular for vintage harvesting exhibits.

Most likely late '50s or so. We were using one like this from late '50s through mid '60s. Actually considered by some to be a far superior picker, to most of the major brands. They had mounts to fit most tractors, of the day.

If I remember right the shucking rolls for a IH #234 picker were cross ways behind the wheels. The shucking bed was a separate unit that could be exchanged with a sheller attachment, and also I think there was also a "grinder attachment"

I rode many hours on a Super MTA Farmall with a New Idea mounted picker on it. Dad always wanted to use the mounted picker to "open the field" and pick the first 8 to 10 rows of corn. We used the corn for cattle feed and would use the shucking bed on the rear. We'd pull a J&M Gravity Flow wagon behind it. We left the picker on the MTA year round. It had one of the Super Snoots on it from M&W and without one of those a lot of the pickers caught on fire. Too much chaff and fine debris floating around the picker......and I think a lot of it ended up in my throat and lungs! Dad liked the New Ideas much better than the IH and JD mounted pickers. The IH picker had a row of chains that ran right up the side of the picker beside the driver. A lot of fingers and hands got mangled on farmers as a result.

One of the farmers in the area would always come over at picking time and ask Dad what he would charge to pick the field by his house. It wasn't a large field and I'd usually take the mounted picker over and do it. Dad would always quote him a price, maybe $20 or so an acre. He would always pay us for the 24 acres that was in the field. One year he didn't have corn there but had a nice crop of alfalfa hay. He told day he would sell him the hay for something like $50/acre and dad would have to cut rake and bale it. Dad took him up on it. I did the cutting, raking and baling and when it came time for dad to pay him dad already had the check made out and handed it to him. The guy looked at it and said "this isn't the right amount". Dad told him "50/acre times 24 acres is that amount". He said no, the field had 28 acres in it. Dad told him we had picked the corn off the field for several years and it always had 24 acres. The guy said "yeah, but I had it remeasured". Dad never had me go pick any corn on that place again.
