Sorting out the equipment shed and last thing out was the old Allcrop 60. What's the best way to protect the canvas in storage? Any other tips? Thanks PK.

You have a really nice looking combine with the B engine and scour kleen attachment. Just keep it inside and dry. If you aren't going to use the combine for a long time you can remove them, but that's kind of a hassle if you use it every year. Be sure to release the tension on the canvases and throw some moth balls around to help keep the mice away and clean out as much of the machine as you can so there's no grain to attract them. Treat the engine as you would any other thats being stored for a long time.

We took our canvas off after harvest and rolled them up and stored them in the barn. Also hang them up where the mice can't get to them.

I take both of the canvas's off the combine at the end of harvest season. Roll them up and store them inside. Yes, it seems to be time consuming and a hassel but considering the cost of new canvas's nowadays it's worth the time it takes for me. Pretty expensive mouse feed!! Never had very good luck trying to keep the mice out of any grain handling equipment.
Do you use your 60 Allcrop much?

We stored ours in an open front building, left the canvasses on. We used to protect gunny sacks by tying them with wire, suspended from the rafters of the granary.

we would take ours off also,but alwys soaked them in diesel before we rolled them up. helped to keep the bugs and mice out.some guys would soak them in a mixture of parrafin and coal oil because it would waterproof them.insects here was about as bad as the mice.

I bought it several years ago at an auction. I haven't had a grain crop to harvest as the elk are so thick anymore the fields I've planted look more like golf greens than grain fields. I'm looking for a small grain elk don't like. Wheat with beards is the only thing I know of they will stay out of. I'm going to try some next year. PK

Store in the Dry, release the tensioners on the lower canvas, tip the upper one up, blow all the chaff out and toss in a few Moth Balls..at various places..
OH, and drop the lower elevator doors or any mice droppings will rust them out..

Ron..

That old ALLCROP brings back a lot of memories. Ours had a bagger and the 7ft high stacks on the engine.

We did not have the scour clean and did have the tall stacks on engine. Ours was a 1944 model. Never took canvasses off for storage, was used in wheat, oats, soybeans and red clover and timothy. If engine was not cranked over regulary the valves would stick, had to pull head and straighten push rods from that.

Yes this one has the exhaust/intake stacks, they're stowed away with some of the belts. PK

I sure would not want to cut Soybeans with that remote-power..IF you see a rock going up the canvas..you have NO way..other than stomping on the Brakes..to keep it from going into the cylinder..!!
That is one reason I had learned to NOT like Over-Running clutches on a PTO..
You have the chance to FORCE the Machine to Stop..had to many times, when I saw a flat rock heading up the canvas..
Remember..NEVER Grease (or oil)that Slip-Clutch under the Grain Bin..!!!Take the Grease fitting out and toss it away..!!
May want to put some Baind-Aids on that Reel..!!!

Ron.

The real is pretty tired, a rebuild is in order. As to stopping the action, I noticed the clutch lever has a hole in it for maybe a rope. Any ideas?
