I was 29 years old and purchased my first new combine in Southern MN. It was one of the happiest days of my life.

Not many 29 year olds could afford a new combine today, very nice picture, we harvested with a 4400 gas in early 90's worked great on windrowed wheat, but we had a 4 row all crop for corn and that was slow going.

The Model 7700 was approximately $30,000 in 1975. I'm willing to bet that the Model 4400 would be at least around $15,000-$20,000. Yes, that was still a lot of money back then, but again, corn and wheat got as much also back then, as they do now.

Fuel and fertilizers were certainly a lot cheaper, too.

I think I paid about $24,500 for the 4400 with a 4-30 corn head. It had larger diesel engine than standard and 26" rice tires.

Thanks for the picture.I know the feeling.At age 26 on 10-1-1975 I
bought a new 1975 715 IH Gas Hydro with 13 ft 810 header that
had a Hart-Carter floating bean bar.

I'm sitting here looking at the original purchase order and see that
it listed for $28,000.I traded off a 1963 403 IH gas belt drive and
was allowed $7400 for it so gave $20,600 difference.

I know the feeling,in 1976 I traded a 105 JD for a new 6600 13' head and a pickup head. I was 20 years old, it went with the 4020 FWA 4020 I had bought the year before. It was scary spending that much money on 1 piece of equipment but wheat was a good price and custom work was easy to get and paid good. Paid it off the second year....James
