Type: Balers Age: Antique
Item: Machines/ Equipment Make: Ruston Hornsby & Jones
We believe that this is an extremely rare vintage farming thresher that can sometimes be seen at collections in museums.  These are rarely seen for sale from someone's private barn!  We have been told this should be entered into a specialist vintage sale or steam rally type meeting but for ease & time we have decided to list on ebay incase there is someone looking for such a rare thing. 

It has a metal plate on it for Ruston & Hornsby Ltd, Grantham with serial number and it says it is an 'improved straw trusser' manufactured under Hornsby's Patents.  It has another plate for Allan Bros, Aberdeen.  There is also what we think is a Jones baler on the back with the name David Watson.  

I am afraid we don't know anything else about it other than it has been barn stored and not used for at least the last 10 years.  

Buyer to arrange collection, we can be flexible about when.  Cash or bank transfer only. We will consider any sensible offers so please feel free to contact us, we are happy to take calls until 10pm on  07472075407.

For the thresher wooden front part:
Overall length 271in long approx
Width between the outside edges of the wheels is 83in
Distance between axles is 168in

For the back part (baler), 227in long approx.
