Looking at either a 650 or 655. Anything to be careful with on them? What model Hesston were they? Need to replace my POS IH piece of crap.

I wouldn't spend a lot of time worrying about the seat cushions. The feed bags and ertilizer bags that were added to cover the soggy old foam rubber are likely long gone. Check out everything else on the machine.
1 Wisconsin engine.
2 Drive belts ans pulleys, includind trim steer operation.
3 chains and bearings on conditioner rolls, as well as condition of the flutes on the rolls.
4 Sickel drive excentrick shaft, pitman rod, and sway bar.
5 Teeth on pickup reel, cam track and cam followers.
6 Tires and final drives.


sorry I don't have lit on the Hesston 110 and Case 650 to post, but here are the next generation of SP mower Conditioners with full width conditining rolls, and 10' cutting width verses 8'

Loren, never heard of a 675. Were they popular? I'm stuck with a shed door that's only 11' 8" inside width.

When in Jr High and High School, I put hundreds if not thousands of hours on a Case 650 windrower. That little machine was certainly a hay-eater, and it did a much better job of crimping alfalfa than a later series Heston that replaced the 650. The Wisconsin engine was bulletproof, and never used a drop of oil. Of course we did replace the wear parts and a couple of bearings over the years, but the variable speed and steering belts were never replaced. Towards the end, the rolls were getting worn. In general that little 650 was a very reliable, trouble free machine.

Two downsides to the 650 were it's very slow road speed, and not enough weight on the tail. We did a lot of custom work with our 650, and without a trailer, moving from farm to farm took way too long. Our part of the country was very hilly, with odd shaped fields. Having to raise the head, and turn while going downhill made for lots of excitement. It was actually fun once you got used to the little 650 standing on it's nose. Dad made a concrete weight in a triangle shape to place on the top of the frame at the rear of the machine. It helped some, but the rodeo in the field still occurred from time to time. Thanks for bringing back some great memories....

Tom, right now I have an IH 990 and a beat to death CASE 555. The 990 pulls hard, is loud, and brakes down about once every 6 acres. I've put a completely new OEM knife in it and went 4 acres and broke 3 knives and a guard, all OEM. Pan where guards bolt up is bowed. Steel conditioner roll is starting to crack and come apart. The 555 needs a whole knife, belt, chains, tires, reel teeth, and paint, but with an 11'-8" door opening it won't fit in the shed! 990 does but it's a turd.

990 pull type, never seen one around here. Always had SP type. Had a IH 201 on the ranch. Had troubles with variable speed drive and seems like dad had to weld it several times. Had a 14 ft header and I guess dad pulled the conditioner off first year he had it. Had the draper head, always patching the canvas with some type of glue. We used it for 18 years before selling it at our farm sale.

Then I bought a IH 210 with 16 1/2 ft header. Was always patching the bats on the real. Used it to clip the CRP and once that was done it weathered away. Bought a old IH 275 with 12 ft auger header. I should have a new cam for real and tin work for the platform. Runs great but not sure about the header. It doesn't have to cut much
