  1. Couple of clips grinding feed..........

    As I said back home we used the 560. At my uncle's place they used the MD. One of the farms I worked at after high school used a Ford 5000 diesel, another used a Case 730 diesel. So usally in that 50-70hp range.

    14 on the grinder? Kinda overkill๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ We always had the 560D on the Farmhand grinder. And yep, I do miss it also๐Ÿ˜Š

    On Monday at noon there was nothing on the wishing well in the yard. This was tonight at 8. And some had melted during the week. I think I'm ready to go back to the desert! (Ok, maybe not.....)

    Thanks guys for all the input. From what I'm seeing here, nobody is saying stay away from it. When I was dealing with the guy I told him any sale would be contingent on hooking up a tractor and hearing it run.

    The belts are the first thing I looked at (they are in front ๐Ÿ™„) they all looked really good. Only one or two teeth missing.

    Anybody have anything else to add?

    That's what I was looking at. $800 less right for the get go.

    That's why I'm thinking of the 914

    I guess my biggest concern would be thrashing quality. Would there be a reason why I should stay with the 1688 for that?
  12. Combine dilemma

    I've got the 1256 to run it, so that shouldn't be a problem. I already swath the wheat to get more even moisture level, and more straw. I run a 14' swather. Swath was a little small for the 1688, but would it be about right for the 914?
  13. Combine dilemma

    Since you guys haven't steered me wrong yet, I'll put this out there. I will be combining 92 acres of spring wheat this year. I have access to a 1688 that is in pretty good shape and I used it two years ago with good results. I can rent it for $20/ac. So it's a fairly good price. Last night I went to look at a 914 pull type. For it's age it looks to be in good shape. There are a few spots that have rusted through on auger pans, put have been patched. The seller used it two years ago for oats. Selling price is $1000. I do bale the straw to add to my income so that is a selling point for me. What do you guys say?
