It's a Rosenthal. Anyone have one? Those rubber tires are put over steel wheels.

I don't have one, but have run a lot of corn through one, over the yrs.
We also used one at our show for yrs, till I found a lil New Idea, that was easier to haul-- and small enuff that the fairgrounds lets me keep in one of their sheds.
The Rosenthal was built by Frick, by the way, for those that didn't know it.

I have a soft spot for those shellers. Glad to see it follow you home rather than get cut up.

Pit,
This is a shucker/shredder. It won't shell.

Oops, I stand corrected and that would work also. It is a nice looking machine and it was saved from the scrappers. That's the best part.

Our club has one that was brought down from Canada several years ago. No one has gotten it running yet and it is stored at the Fair Grounds and brought out each year for those that are interested to look at. Dick in the pleasant today, but turning bad tomorrow, Finger Lake Region of NYS.

My best friend has a nice Rosenthal 40 he inherited from his granddad a few years back. At our show, we run twin shredders for people to see something different- his Rosenthal and my New Idea running simultaneously off the same bundle wagon. I bought a US Wind wooden shredder this past year, needs a bit of work, but I plan to have it up and running this year. The Rosenthal- it seems to me that maybe there was actually a shelling attachment available for it? Not sure why I think that- if his grandpa told me that or I saw it in the owners manual or I'm just out to lunch. Anyway, its good to see another one saved- hope you put it to work at a show!

Never saw a sheller attatchment on one. I helped on one of these things YEARS ago a little, and as well as I remember it didn't half shuck the corn. Just snapped them off, and left a LOT of shucks on the ears.
