Ohio Cultivator Stars at Wapakoneta Show
(Page 2 of 2)
By 1927 Stahl added other implements to the line, including 1- and 2-row corn and bean planters, cultipackers, dump rakes, hay loaders, disc harrows, fertilizer spreaders, and Thomas grain drills and planters (including the Thomas 2-speed planter) from Springfield, Ohio. Hand tools and wrenches were also part of the product line.
National Farm Machinery Cooperative, which was affiliated with Cockshutt, bought Ohio Cultivator in 1943. Cockshutt then bought the Bellevue, Ohio, and Shelbyville, Ind., plants, closing the Bellevue operation in 1955. The company continued production of the Blackhawk planter and Ohio manure spreader.
Since restoration six or seven years ago, the Ohio Cultivator hay press is used only at our show at Wapakoneta. It has performed reliably and is a very good crowd pleaser. It will be demonstrated at the Buckeye Farm Antiques show in May. A new addition for the 2011 show: a Montgomery Ward wagon. FC
