My never ending quest for a no hole base Combine Harvester

Postby Brad Pittiful » Sun Jun 18, 2017 5:33 pm

so in my searching..i look at every combine i see to find a no hole base variation...so what does this mean...it means i still havent found one...but one thing i seem to find is the combine with the open step ladder...one of which i received in the mail yesterday...i think this is the 8th one i have found...still looking for the no hole model...will i ever find one?...will i find 20 open step ladder models in my collecting life before the no hole base model?...stay tuned...i will keep you posted

sorry no pics as photobucket seems to not work as well as it used to and im thinking of using another site

Dan, I totally understand as I'm in the same boat. Have a couple of "open hole" ladder variations but no variations without the base hole. :shock:
Keep looking and don't give up........if any one can find one, it would be you..................

And here I am still trying to find my first open step variation and you've found 8!
Must be an expert's knack or something.

Dan & Bill, I will start looking for the no hole base variation and perhaps the open step one will come along - that must be the way you do it.

I decided to pay the small annual fee to go ad free. It made a huge difference and PB works smoothly and quickly. I have a huge amount of photos stored there so I didn't want to attempt a move and risk loss.

I started using Photobucket as cloud storage back around 2002. I've had at least four hard drives crash since then and most of what's stored on PB is my only remaining copies of those files.
