Ok. You're a long ways from me (Southern Illinois) I've seen several smaller machines fairly close to me sell for around $1000-$1500 in pretty decent shape.

Yes that is the big problem i am on the east coast where cars , trucks , farm equipment , houses everything is 1/3 to 1/5 more expensive here then out west i see small combines there all the time cheap sometimes even free but i am 1200 to 1500 miles away and i work 6 days a week so i never have time to go get one of them and trucking is very expensive i cant find a trucker for less then 3.00 a mile so even if somebody gave a combine completely free the shipping/trucking would eat me alive i cant afford this and here there is no small farm equipment hardly everything here is 8 or 10 or 12 row stuff

I use 4 row cultivator , 4 row planter , 4 row muddle buster , 4 row bedder i had to buy all these 4 row implements in another state small equioment is hard to find the smallest combine for sale in nc are 9500 or 9600 jd combines i DO NOT WANT ANYTHING JD it will never happen i will never own anything JD no way i will quit farming 100% before i buy JD

Lol on the Deere. I had a few Deeres, but now I have all Case, except for my combine which is a 1971 Gleaner F w/13 header. I traded riding mower for it that I was asking $300 for about 10 years ago.

i really need a good machine i would pay for a little extra if you help me find a good one and i would also a would pay even a little more extra if you can help me find somebody to haul cheaper than 3.00 a mile

I only really need a good one but being that far away i can't really see it in person but you having one you can probably check one out for me and tell me if it is good

I'll see what I can find. I looked at this one, it sold the end of January in Indiana. It was in good shape, I would like to have it but didn't need it. If we can find a good one that you need hauled, hopefully we can find a truck needing a backhaul that would make a deal.

Very beautiful case 660 i would love to have got that one

Is it hard to find this

Small combine with chopper
Corn head
Rigid head
Flex head
Pickup head

Are case combines or heads easy to find ??
Allmost any small combine would do gas with gear trans those 2 are easy for me to work on

So combines go for 400 to 900 for small good obes with a head ??

Thank you for helping me find one and maybe helping with me a hauler

i am learning more about them , how to set them reading up on these forum

Around my area that's a good average price. And in my opinion as well as several others I know, a Case combine will do a much better job of cleaning the grain than most. The smaller Gleaner, IH and Deere are the ones I usually see for sale or at auction. I've seen a few Gleaner F diesels with both heads for up around $2000 with low hours.

Jd made the best planter in the 80s or so, still very capable. So I own one of those.

Wife said no green tractors tho. We kid each other. Those green ones are too expensive.....

I have a JD swather, because they were very popular in the day, easy to find and worked good enough. Slant 6 engine......
