THis is not mine, I just ran across it on Craigslist and though it might be of some interest to someone here.
  I never knew AC made such a piece.

I've never seen them in real or in work clothes. Only in the book of Norm Swinford there is information and picture's about it.

that is actually a cotton stripper. they quit making pickers in the 60's. wonder how many AC pickers and strippers are still out there working, or along a fence row!

We have an 860 in our collection.  It is kind of out of place here in Ohio
If you know how many tractors you have, you dont have enough

I still have and run two 880 cotton strippers. Which was a later model then the 860. Years ago my father had a 616 two row Allis cotton picker in was on a D17 chassis with the ring gear turned backward to make the 17 be mounted to the picker backward.

when I was a kid in south Texas, we had 3- 500 model # cotton pickers. they were rusted and retired in the 70's, then junked in the 80's. I always thought the ben pearson picker strongly resembled the AC. They did both use the RUST picking mechanism design. Anyone know anything about or used a Ben Pearson?
