Roughly 20 years back my family donated a well used MF 205 combine to the local historical society. They recently told me they had gotten a better/newer combine, and wanted to know if I'd like to have the 205 back.

I have no place to keep it and no use for it, so I told them "no". But I asked if it was O.K, if I looked for a new home for it rather than seeing it scrapped. They said that was fine.


Here's what I know:

The combine is in central Illinois - Roughly 75 minutes NE of St. Louis.

It has a 2 row 40" corn head and a 10' or 11' grain table that go with it.

They tell me that the combine runs, and they shelled corn with it in the fall of 2018. I have not driven it myself for several years.



If another non-profit antique machinery club is interested in the thing I'm pretty sure they'd just give it to you. If a private collector want it I'll put you in touch with the people who can make a decision. But I'm certain it would be relatively inexpensive.


If a home isn't found for it I'm guessing they'll scrap it. But that decision is not up to me.



If you're interested please email me: rsitruss at yahoo dot com

Thought I'd attempt to post a picture:



Hopefully you're all able to see it. If not please let me know.

Seems totally backward to me that a "historical society" wants a "newer and better" combine. Normally my thought process says they should be looking for something "older".
