I combine small grain and soybeans with IH 315 and 82 (with pickup head) combines. Collecting 234 and 2-MH/2M-HD era pickers and shellers and attaching hardware.

When the 715's came out with the 810 series head and a gas engine belt drive no air on cab they were not much over 12,500 if i remember correctly. Diesel was a $2000 option i beleive and then add hydro and air on cab and hyd reel drive //I bet these are bare belt driven no air on cab machines

Back in the sixties and early seventies, you hardly saw ANY diesel combines in this area. All the 815 and 915 and 715 machines were gas burners. Our 69 815 was. Had the little 304 V8 with dual exhausts. Was one wicked sounding machine, reved up taking in six rows of corn. :D 915 had the 345 V8 at the time. Diesel tractors started appearing here in the mid to late sixties, do not know what the big attraction for gas engines was in this area. :blink:

That 815 G would go through 140 gallons of gas in a big day of mudding out corn. :blink:

JD - Glad Your feeling better...... Isn't that something..... that 140 gal. of gas is now $500 as opposed to $30. No wonder people could farm then and raise a family and buy more ground, go on vacations, etc.

Thanks Denny! Second day back at work, felt better than yesterday. This getting old is for the birds. :(

As for the fuel prices, I do not recall that being much of an issue back in those days. It sure is now! :(

There were alot of gas 715 combines around here including our's, I'd say 80% of the 715s I've seen in this area where gas. We used our 715 right up until the engine spun a bearing on Thanksgiving day 1998. The radiator in the 1440 sprung a leak so we got the 715 out (we kept it around for small grains) to finish the last farm and about three quarters of the way through the field it died but we haven't had the heart to scrap it out yet.

I see in the local paper that a IH 615 combine is coming up for auction. Is it just smaller, or a earlier model?
The add says its in excelent condition?? ken
