More Overby Corn Picker

 This is where the operator sits controlling six draft horses while running the picker.

 Husked ears of corn fall into this bin and are carried up the elevator and into a wagon running along side pulled by two more horses.

Mr. Glenn Overby, son of inventer and builder Frank Overby. He still lives on the family farm outside of Mellette, SD where his father and uncle built this machine completed in 1904.
