It was our 1940 9N way back in the early 40's. The old way of making hay was to have one man on the ground pitching up haycocks to the second man on the wagon, whistle to the horses and they advanced to the next haycock. Two uncles handled this well. In comes the new hay loader, now one man on the 9N and one on the wagon. The man on the wagon could not keep up as the hay gushed up the loader and spilled onto and over flowed the wagon. Needed to have both men on the wagon. Thats where I came in, just heavy enough to push down and let up on the clutch. I drove it down the windrows stopped at the end and one man got off the hay wagon and turned the tractor to the next row where I again took over. I was soon pressured to learn how to turn the rig to the next row and I did. I also quickly learned how to back up the narrow ramped drive to the hay barn and pull the rope to haul the hay fork up the trolley that switched to travel to the hay mow where the two uncles neatly stacked the hay by hand. Long days in mid summer heat, still have some N's as well as some of that work ethic left but not that much energy!
