I have a few acres of oats that is almost comletely down, with lots of weeds coming through. How's my 66 All-Crop, which is in decent shape, going to work in this stuff, or am I better off hiring a custom combine operator to do the job.

I don't know much about oats, but when you say a couple of acres you mean 2 or 3, right?
Can't you just give it a try and see what happens? Go slow and find the right angle to attack the mess from.

Listen, My Uncle Jack was the King when it came to combining down oats, and he was doing it till 1985 or 1986 with a 66 all crop. He didn"t have a pick up reel, but had some grain lifters on the sections...about one lifter per foot. Spring loaded, he ran the header as low as it would go and the lifters ran on top of the gound and pick it all right up. He could go with the oats falling away, but could go at right angles and against them. I believe Shoup still sells them.

If you intend to straight combine, you are in for a miserable time. If you don"t have a windrow pickup for the combine and hire a swather, just hire the neighbor with a finger reel if you want to straight cut it. Next year you can try spraying for the weeds so the crop is clean enough to straight cut.

Never fails they fell down the same way you have to go with a pull type, you can"t just turn around to pick them up like a self propelled. If you try it have fun I"ve been there, now I have a SP.

? you can go either way with it you just have to drive empty one way & cut only one way. stay on one side of the field & make single passes.

Dont know how good it will work but sounds like a good time to eithr cut and bale for whatever you can usee them for or cut up high enough so they rest on top of the straw. let them dry down and might be able to get header under enough for them to feed thru or just bale them.

Your combine will have fits with those weeds. I would not try to cut them. You might break more than the oats is worth. Have them cut and try for some next year to combine.
