Found an AC 780 forage harvester that is five miles from my house. It has a one row cornhead good paint and good condition. It has one dent in blower pipe to remove but looks good mechanically. Were they any good? I might buy it to add to my collection as they are hard to find.What is it worth? Any help would bne appreciated. Thank you!

My grandfather had a new 780 with a two-row head and a direct cut head as well.He got along very well with it.Dad had a Deere 38 and said that the 38 was twice the chopper in capacity.The feed rolls open very little on the allis and that limits capacity.If you do not buy it I would be interested as I would like to find one.I enjoy forage harvesters and wagons from the 1960's.Post some pics if you get it.

The next door neighbor had one years ago and I do not recall any complaints. Probably not as nice as what is made today but no surprise there. There were a small number around years ago as there were AC dealers that had no shortlines such as Gehl or New Holland.
