I upgraded last year from this 1460 to this 2144, which also happens to be the 1st 2144 made.  It's in the shop getting around $10,000 in work done to it.  I'll be running my own soybeans for the 1st time since 2019, this year.

  That 1460 would suit me just fine as long as it was not completely wore out.

It was a good combine with around 6000hrs.  The PTO seal went out and I was ready to upgrade anyways.  I had it for sale for $2500 and really nothing more than tire kickers. I decided to part it out.

Very nice photo529289609.gif .

Could we have a photo of the harvester?

It was crazy today. I'll try tomorrow.

It's not much to look at. Several body panels are off and it's got a coating of black kernel smut.

I'll try tomorrow.

Here's a couple pics while I was fueling up. Panel is off because I need to fix a few things and won't put it back on until I do...

It's really dark from the black kernel smut.

Probably the only 1460 still harvesting rice here in the States.

If you'll look you will notice the elevated leveling auger, long clean grain elevator, lack of grain tank extensions and long unloading auger. All factory on early rice specials.

Below is a pic of the cover from the original axial flow rice combine brochure. The pic is actually of a prototype rice combine.

Very rare brochure that I am looking for.

I really like that photo 974250.gif .
How many hours does this machine have?
Can you use it for other crops?

She's got around 4000 hours. It shows close to 7000 hours but my original tachometer died and I put a used one in with about 3000 more hours than my old one showed.

She harvests other crops fine with the specialty rotor (originally it had a rice rotor but the specialty is much better). 

I bought her almost 25 years ago and had been recently rebuilt then. She needs rebuilt again.

Here at West Texas A&M I have a class named Grain, Fiber, and Oilseed. We learn about Corn, Wheat, Milo, Cotton, plus two others I can’t think of. Then we have to research a crop to present in class. My group presented Barley yesterday and I pulled up the diagram on the board of the 16xx series to show how the grain goes through the combine.

I wanted to show something a little newer but this diagram showed up the best on the classroom screen. My point was to talk about the basic function of harvesting, threshing, separating, and cleaning of the crop. I did include rotor and fan speed for these combines in barley. Got good reviews for the presentation. 
 

I don’t think I ever showed any wheat harvest photos from back in July. Here are a few favorites. The farmer dad and I help has a 2588 I run and a 7130 dad runs.
