Mr. Monroe Swartz, Richfield, Pa., has an unusual way of
handling his combined grain. As you see by the picture, the truck
brings the grain from the Combine and it is elevated into the Huber
thresher. This is done only to have it recleaned. The weigher
elevates it and pours it into a regular farm elevator which carries
it to the storage bin.

This cleans the grain of sticks, straws, light grain, green
stuff and dirt, which saves on storage space. This is an
interesting operation. – – Elmer
