Model 82 - Harvester
From Tree Crop Harvester
This was a modified SSP Harvester model 82. It was purchased by Larry and Darrel Schieler (owners of Schieler Harvester) in 1982. For the 1986 season a cab was added with more modifications and it harvested for the next 6 years. It was then striped to it's frame and built into a model 788 harvester. The same 4 cylinder turbo diesel John Deer engine runs in it today. Darrel is operating the harvester here during the 1985 season. Here, Darrel and his son Damon are making new modifications to model 82 in Schieler Harvester's factory for the 1985 season.
This, again, is model 82 being loaded with empty bins by a bin carrier in the 1985 season. Notice there is no manual (timely and costly) labor with Schieler Harvester's tried and proven innovation; the SideTrack. SSP's model 77 and 78, bought by Larry and Darrel Schieler, were retro-fitted with SideTracks in 1977 and 1978 upon their purchase. This has been one of the main advantages Schieler Harvester has maintained over all other harvesters. If you see an imitator, just remember that Schieler Harvester has used,continually updated, and proven the SideTrack.
Here is co-owner Darrel with his father Edgar (Doc) Schieler harvesting the 1985 prune season.
