    Very cool Mike. We had the more modern version growing up that hooked to the PTO on the tractor. Always amazed me to see how little corn was left on the cobs.

    My favorite memory was cleaning out the corn bins every year. We'd block off every hole and by the time we reached the bottom there were a hundred field mice running for their lives. We'd then let the cats in, each would have two in their mouth, one under each paw and trying to catch the next one running by.

    That is very cool! Be neat to see it work with clear plexiglass sides to see whats going on inside.
