If you could buy a new small pull type combine and remembering the old ones, what would you go for? People with less than 100 acres of grain are having a tough time keeping old ones going or getting a custom operator. I imagine there will be a ton of votes for A-C 72 and 90.

Ya,gotta agree on the 72 or 90. I had a JD 42 but I wouldn't give a plug nickle for another one. Oliver 18 maybe.

What small acreage I harvest, a good used (read CHEAP) combine would be welcome. Right now, I bind and shock the oats, and take them to the local steam/old tractor show for thrashing.

I have put about 40 acres of soybeans and wheat through my 90 allis pull type and the only thing that has broke was a rock guard yesterday. Plus very easy to get parts through Yaz all crop. It purred right through 55 bushel soybeans.

Are custom operators really that hard to find??
I'd probably quit before I tried cutting grain with a PT combine.

Well Rod, Some of us find it quite enjoyable to use equipment from the past......no I'm not going to do 3000 acres with my All-Crop 66 but it sure is fun to operate. And I bet I can get as clean if not a cleaner sample than any new combine on the market today.

If you enjoy tinkering with an old combine... that's one thing. I can think of things I'd rather do having spent a fair amount of time having tinkered with an old combine... when I needed it to work.
It's not a road I'd care to follow as a means to an end. To fool around... that's another thing.

In some places they are. Can't hire anyone around here. Big farmers just want to worry about their own, and not enough potential customers for somebody to just do custom harvesting. I'd gladly hire a big, new combine to do my soybeans in a couple days, but I'm forced to fight that cantankerous Gleaner K2 for however long it takes.

You bet, an Oliver 18 combine. Neighbors had one when I was a teenager. I helped and don"t remember ANY breakdowns, although I"m sure they had a few. That thing just kept going and going. I just saw one in the Wi. Farmer paper about a month ago for sale by an equip. dealer. Advertised it to USE! Asking was $800.00 I believe.
