This is the first loader picture we have had in the ALBUM. The loader picks up the Whole shock (some call them Stooks) and elevates it into the rack. In good grain it will put on a load in four minutes. This machine cut the old twenty-man crew down to ten. It was necessary to shock the grain in straight rows and then you just drove the loader down the shock row. They were first pulled with four horses and later with a traction engine. They came out about 1911 and cost $800. They were one of the greatest labor saving devices of the threshing era. Courtesy of Bernard Dale, Briercrest, Saskatchewan, Canada.
