I'm looking for a pull behind combine for wheat, and perhaps bean or corn, harvesting with a 40 HP 540 rpm PTO tractor. I know this means getting something old, but from what I've seen a lot of these older units are still going strong.

I'd like as small a unit as possible that would still be useful for about 2-5 acres. I would like to get some feedback and recommendations.

Thanks in advance

There are several IH 80 and 82 combines
for auction on October 1 near Montfort WI,
I don't think these have a canvas apron
which for me would be a huge plus

If you plan to do corn your only option is a Deere 42. Finding a corn head and all the parts will be hard but not impossible. You could buy a
small self propelled like a Deere 45 or a Gleaner E for less money. Tom

Thank you all for the info. I will keep my eyes open for any of these units. I'm in VA, so Montfort is too far for me.

The info on the JD 42 is very appreciated. I had thought that corn harvesting was an option on multiple manufacturers. corn is NOT my primary goal - for now - but may be more important in future.

Does anyone have some thoughts or know what the going price for any of these units would be?

McCormick, IH machines do a good job as well.

Parts are very common, across alof of machines (having a parts machine is handy) - although the self-proplled models usually had a heavier elevator chain. Here is a break down.

91 /93/203 are self-propelled. All separation parts, and most hood parts and elevator chains, bearings are the same, or supercede to the 80/82 models.
Auger platforms, no canvas. Windrow pick up units from any of the abovementioned, fit all.
They made alot of all 5 of these. Good, simple machines, uses standard v-belts. Only PIA part is the rock trap - hard to clean, a vacuum is best. Clean it often - no one else does, lol.

The 64 and 76 (and earlier) pull-types had canvas aprons, yet the chaffers and shoe sieves (not the straw walkers) are the same as in the 91,93,80,82 AND the 203 self propelled machines. Larger elevator
chains on the 203.

Technically, if you were very bored/had the itch, you can put either a #25 or a #227/228 corn head on the pull-types. However, a #25 corn head is a heavy, heavy beast whch may exceed the frame strength of
the pull types. Also, they are slightly offset, to fit the SP machines, so will interfere with your PTO drive.
The feeder house, and drives on these heads are the same as the 80/82 , 91/93/203 machines.

You can do corn with the self propelled simple enough, but these pull type - machines were designed with small grains and rice in mind.

The JD or the All-crop would be the best if you dream of combining corn. Pretty common, in the antique world. The corn head, is the hard part to find for either. I dont see very many for sale.

You can also find a test-plot combine. Many, many manufactures across the ages, and sized for testing - or in your case, 2-5 acres. May be actauly TOO small, but i have not ran one, so cant really speak to
how long it takes to do an acre.

I can zip thru beans, oats and wheat pretty OK with my old IH herd, lol. Couple acres an hour, but i take my time, as i enjoy the ride.

Best of luck in your search.

I agree, if a pull type is what you want, a Allis pull type is what you want, the IHC will be a struggle to get one going, and do u have a tractor slow enough, 1st gear, i have had a 96 and a 106 Deere. and a live PTO is a must!

There is a John Deere 42 with a two row corn head on it for sale in Arthur, IL. This machine is field ready. The owner is selling
it as he moved up to an IH 914.
