Today, we had a bit of an accident out at the farm...
We had our cotton stripper catch fire. I am not sure exactly, but something with the engine compartment and a spark, mixed with cotton... it was a bad mix and our cotton stripper is totaled.
To start, here is what a cotton stripper is supposed to look like:
And this is one that is not a happy stripper:
I took a little video of it when I got there:
Here are some more pictures from around the cotton stripper:
|From a distance. This is the front of the stripper.|
|Side View, can you see where the cab USED to be?|
|Can you see the fire? This is just under the bucket that holds the cotton, where the engine is.|
|Back View. The fire at the ground on the left is the front tire. You can also see some flames inside the bucket just above the red tape on the left.|
