Played with a JD 30 a few yrs. ago. SIL & I put 2 together to make one. It did a nice job & was a fun project. Sold it to a club member who gets it out once a yr. just to keep it limbered up.

I owned a 96,106 John Deere and pulled my friends Case 42 inch machine, dont work too good with row crops, but for small grains and you got a extra tractor their fine! But if the wind is in the wrong direction it can blew a lot of straw and chaff, towards the tractor you have to watch the radiator,and air filter!!!!

Back in the '50's & early '60's, Dad had an A6 Case combine with a Hercules water cooled "pony" engine. There were a lot of A6's in our part of SD. Ours was the only one that had a water cooled engine, that I knew of. Most were V-4 Wisconsin's. The Case combines were very reliable and did a good job. We also had a pull type, ground driven 12' Case windrower that we used to cut grain for the combine. We did a lot of "custom" work, both cutting & combining. I did almost all of the cutting with that windrower. Dad & my brother ran the combine & hauled off the grain. (The grain tank held a mammoth 25 bushels.) We pulled the combine with an H Farmall. Depending on how heavy the grain was, low gear or low throttle second gear was used. A 12' wide cut of rye or good wheat filled the 6' wide pick-up head on the A6. Low gear idling was sometimes to fast for the "Herk" to handle the load. You could hear that pony motor "bellering" a half-mille away on a still day.

Back when I was in Junior and regular High School I went to my uncle's farm every summer. He had a MM G-4 pull type combine with an engine on it. We used it for swathed small grains, The swather was 14 ft I believe. As I got older I got to operate the combine. It did a good job at that time, real slow compared to what they have now. The air cleaner stack and radiator intake were both very high to keep the dust at bay. you could engage the combine and control the header from the tractor.

Interested what you are calling a 42" pull-type CASE do you have any pics by chance? biggest they made for production was a 40" 400 or 460 models as far as capacity, they made a lot of smaller ones that had 4 to 7 foot headers though they included the A-6 F,F2 77 ect they had a 1660 sized pull-type (52" that was the competitor to your 106) one ready to go when they dropped combine production in very early 1970,, last machine was made in December 1970 but they sold the last NOS machine in 1974,, be neat to see those pull-types working,,

When I was a kid in the '50s my dad did all his combining with a Woods (Wood?) Brothers pull-type combine with a gas engine. What I remember most about it is that he was always having to use some sort of glue to patch the canvas, and the Wisconsin engine never wanted to start. But it had great internal cavities that filled with chaff and provided nesting spots for free-range hens.

I used a JD 30 for several years to cut rye that was planted as a cover crop after tobacco. It worked good.

I had enough experience with an Oliver 15. That machine had a canvass to deliver the grain to the thresher. The sickle drive always gave us trouble.

John Deere 12A pulled by a WD Allis Chalmers which made a real good combination because of the WD's live PTO with the hand clutch. Also the 12A tounge was on the right side. Ours had a grain tank that, I think, held about 50 bushels, so no bagging. We had a Kory gravity wagon. Just one. It was pulled by a WC Allis Chalmers to a New Idea elevator that elevated the grain into the bins thru multiple chutes which was considered quite modern at the time. We never touched the grain. I'm trying to remember the year we started doing that. It might have been around 1950. I remember the last year I did it. It was 1964. I was home from the Army at combining time and got to do it one more time. Does anyone remember who and when built the last pull type combine? I think it was John Deere. And I think it was before the turn of the century (20 to 21). And by the way. Back when we were doing this, everyone agreed that Allis Chalmers made the best combines/ So, why did we use a John Deere? Beats me. I'm still using a John Deere combine. Why? Beats me. (;>)) I'll tell you one thing, though. They have great capacity and dealer support. When I call for help, they are there pronto. When I call for a part or parts they deliver them. Day or night. Saturday and Sunday included.

I have an International 80 that I have used mostly to combine oats. I have used it a little in barley and rye. It works good if there aren't too many weeds .It doesn't take many green weeds to clog everything up.

I used an AC 60 on my few acres. Ran wheat and soybeans. Canvases were a problem until I replaced them with new ones, then it worked good. I repaired a few places on it, but it's such a simple machine was not a problem. I haven't used it for a few years and would sell it if someone's interested.

My Dad had one of those when I was a little kid. It had a Wisconsin motor on it. He pulled it with a Jubilee Ford. When he combined
wheat, he would put me in the wagon so I couldn't get away and go combine and check on me when he
had to empty the hopper. One time he caught a couple baby rabbits and put them in the wagon with me
and the wheat for me to try to catch while he combined. Good old days!!!!
