Hi everyone, I just leased a 75 acre field that I plan on
growing wheat in this coming year. The property is located
north of Denver Colorado and I’m looking at an old John
Deere 95 combine that is About 60 miles away on the east
side of Denver. They have two of the combines that have
been stored in a barn and are running in good condition. They
have been used through 2017 harvest. They come with a
header and you can take your pick for 2000OBO. The only
trailer that I have that is wide enough and long enough to fit 1
is a deck over gooseneck however it would be interesting to
get 1 loaded up on there. I will take the header off bring that
on a separate trailer so I will probably be width wise but I don’t
know the exact height on the machines and I’m worried that
on top of my deck over trailer it might be too high to make it.
Does anybody have any good ideas? The quotes to transport
1 have been close to $1000 which I don’t have the money for.

Can you drop the header onto a flatbed, header cart or wagon and drive the combine home on back roads? Take two people and tow the the header home behind your vehicle. At 10 to 12 MPH road speed it should be home in one day.

By the time you find a trailer load and tie down,do the same thing on the other end you could have just driven it. I figure about 4.5 hours.

I've driven two combines home and had no problems...One was 40 miles and one was 50 miles...I took the back roads and had an escort vehicle with me..Those 95's sure do look nice..

Years ago a neighbor drove a 45 JD combine 200 miles home from northern Missouri..It took 2 long days..

Unfortunately it’s being sold as part of an estate sale and from
what I can gather I wouldn’t trust them to measure the tallest
points even if they agreed to measure it

I'm with the drive it crowd. You didn't say how wide the header is but anything less than 16' you should be able to get it home on the combine. If you have a buddy take them along in case of any problems.

I drove my jd 8820 225 miles home from an auction.

It was a pretty easy 2 day trip.

I really enjoyed seeing the countryside from up high! Ha

An educated guess puts the over-all height, when loaded on a deck-over gooseneck trailer, to be in excess of 14 feet. Might be closer to 16 feet.

We bought a 95 many years ago. Had a bridge beam about 20 ft long. Welded a pipe on top of it same size as the pin that helt the rear axle on. Took axle off and pinned it on then chain and boomed front up. Hooked it to a International truck. Put grain header on truck. combine had a 3 row corn head on it. Pulled it 125 miles home. It was stupid to do this. While we were doing all this work combine at 15 mph would have been 45 miles closer to home.not counting the work we done at home. And couldn't pull combine over 35. My son runs a JD dealership. They always drive combines and big tractors that distance.

Sure, if you can just jump in and hit the road, it will be a wash. If the combine isn't running perfectly, I would not even consider driving it because knowing my luck it would die exactly half way home in the middle of the road and I'd have no way to move it. Paying the hauler $1000 to move it would seem cheap at that point.

If you have to do a bunch of tinkering with the engine to get it running right, you could spend hours before the trip. Loading it and getting it home so you could work on it in your leisure would then be much quicker.

60 miles though, you can quickly do that in a car or pickup truck in a little over an hour barring traffic. It would be worth it to me to run out there and measure the height myself for the 3-4 hours it would take. You could also use it to pre-drive your route.

With no grain tank extension it should be in the ten or eleven foot tall range.
