When in Jr High and High School, I put hundreds if not thousands of hours on a Case 650 windrower. That little machine was certainly a hay-eater, and it did a much better job of crimping alfalfa than a later series Heston that replaced the 650. The Wisconsin engine was bulletproof, and never used a drop of oil. Of course we did replace the wear parts and a couple of bearings over the years, but the variable speed and steering belts were never replaced. Towards the end, the rolls were getting worn. In general that little 650 was a very reliable, trouble free machine.

Two downsides to the 650 were it's very slow road speed, and not enough weight on the tail. We did a lot of custom work with our 650, and without a trailer, moving from farm to farm took way too long. Our part of the country was very hilly, with odd shaped fields. Having to raise the head, and turn while going downhill made for lots of excitement. It was actually fun once you got used to the little 650 standing on it's nose. Dad made a concrete weight in a triangle shape to place on the top of the frame at the rear of the machine. It helped some, but the rodeo in the field still occurred from time to time. Thanks for bringing back some great memories....
