Young at Heart: Avery Yellow Kid Thresher

1914 Avery Yellow Kid thresher still going strong at Platte County Steam & Gas Engine Show

Yellow Kid
The Yellow Kid has a 24-inch cylinder and a 36-inch separator. Although it can be difficult to accurately determine the model year of old wooden threshers, Ron Roebuck believes the Avery may have been built in 1914, based on a serial number of 14350 and a "14/19" stamp on one end of the main bolster.
