I got out there today with the old '59 John Deere 95 combine, it took some adjusting of the real but we got it cutting really nice. The old combine never sputtered or missed out, I drove it 6 miles to a friends field and cut around 3 acres then drove it back. Now I need to clean it out and put it away till next year.

It seemed to separate the wheat pretty good, we had some wheat heads in the grain tank but Dave (the farmer friend I was cutting with) said that their new Case IH combine does the same thing because the wheat sent up suckers and those heads were still green. The combine was leaving quite a bit of grain  behind when we realized there was a big rust hole on the auger tube on the bottom of the combine, I got it all taped up and then it wasn't hardly leaving anything behind.

For being 57 years old, the old combine did great

Putting away?  So, over the winter the Mice come in and find the "stock" of left-overs and make nests, eat the wiring and other things. In spring will be gone and leave junk behind!  AND, I'm not familiar with Wheat Duct Tape, that diff stuff that holds up better than standard?  Ha! :poke: :smilewink:

Cut around 3 acres then drove it back?  Wasn't enough to bother getting it running for.  That is about what I start with when I mow my lawn.  3 trips around and ready for the straight line mowing with room for turning on the ends.

I thought about not putting it away and I will just run it and cut endless wheat all summer and winter but I figured that probably wouldn't work either.

I didn't say duct tape, it was clear packing tape, it stuck down and held great, I will get out the torch and braze in patches this winter.

The 3 acres that I cut was just testing out the combine, next year I am planing on cutting around 10 acres of my friends wheat to clean out the combine again and then I will cut my 5 acres of organic old fashion wheat (turkey red). I like to cut my friends wheat since his isn't food grade and mine is, it's a good way to get the combine shined up and get the gunk cleaned out.

 

3 Acres doesn't sound like much till you are cutting it by hand and thrashing it, a $500 combine sure seems worth it if you look at it that way.
