Old Fords Bringing in the Crop


Red Horse

Recommended Posts

Had more pix guys but as usual I have trouble uploading from my albums.  In anycase, the guys in the water corral the berries that are floating and get vacuumed up into a machine that separates the berries from  any "vine" and the stripped "vine" with the water shoots into the bed of the 650 dump.   Water drains out back and truck holds the "chaf"- i guess that is what you call it. You'll see flats like the one pulled by the Louisville running all over the place at this time of year.  Mass is 2nd to Wisc. in cranberry production and Mass crop this year is  expected to be 9 million barrels. At 100 lbs to the bbl, If you assume 40,000 lbs per that is 22,500 trailer loads!  In a short period of time. I saw another Ford (an LTA Aeromax) and what was either an HN -80 Louisville or a Sterling out on the edge of a bog off Rt 25 in Wareham.

thanks Bob.  I use Chrome.  I'll try using Firefox which I also have.

I imagine that '94 in Reno is totally rust free too.
