How many years have you run your combine?


Recommended Posts

Here is a picture of our 1460 Combine that we bought in December 1980.  It was one of the 1st run of 300 and the 1st one sold in southeast Iowa. It was at the 1977 Farm Progress Show in Washington, Ia in the Mud Hog Tent.  This picture was taken a couple years ago when it was our main corn combine. Now we run it as backup for our pair of 2188s!  The combine has had a lot of work done to it over the years. It has somewhere around 9500 hours.  It was in the Oat field this summer!

Impressive! We had a 915 with around that many hours. Dad bought it when it was three years old, ran it until 1998.

The 1644 dad bought new in 1994. Ran it until 2004. Had just turned 3000 engine hours. Was the most reliable combine ever on the farm.

The 2388 replaced the 1644 in 2004. It was a 2001. It decided to take a early retirement in October of 2013.

Currently running a 2588 I have no pictures of, lol, since 2013 that I plan on keeping for a very long time.

About 15 years that we've owned this 1978 1460 and we've had the 1979 S1700 for over 30.

38.7k miles on truck, 4400 hrs on combine.

1/16 scale 2388 bought at NFMS I forget what year maybe 2001?  Pretty low carpet hours😀.  Seriously could never justify one for my little plot 5 acres of cash crop 🤣.
