This is a Cockshutt Pull type combine I know nothing about. The owner said it was parked for about 35-40 years'.I think its a No.7 but cant be sure. What I would like to know is around what year it was bulit,what model it is, is it worth fixing, and what's it worth right now and what would it be worth fully restored?

Thanks for your time

I'm not sure which would have been the most popular, although I expect the motor version would be. A lot of the tractors back then would have had quite a load pulling the combine as well as providing power to the combine. The brochure I have states: "We strongly recommend (the motor) as a...dividend payer...when picking up in heavy crop conditions. I can't find much detail on the motor in the brochure or operators manual that I have, other than it's 35 hp. Headers were 5'7" and 8'. A lot of them came with the Scour Kleen recleaner up on the tank, they were also available with bagging attachments instead of the hopper. The hopper held 35 bushels.

The owner's manual has set up instructions for the pto for various tractors. It mentions the Oliver 70, 80 and 99 (same as the Cockshutt tractors), IHC W-30, W-40, 15-30, 22-36, etc. It seems there was little standardization of power take offs amongst various tractor makers.

I've seen a couple sitting around in the bush, never seen a restored one. It probably wouldn't be that hard to restore - they were mostly angle iron and sheet metal. They came with either a motor or pto drive, dead simple. Those were among the early combines replacing the old threshing machines, probably gained popularity because of wartime labour shortages. It would be an interesting restoration.

Therefore, it would be about 1945 right. You said it would have been one of the earlier combines. How rare is it on a scale of 1 to 10, ten being not rare at all. How hard would it be to fix it to a running state and how much would it cost? Because I have never worked on a combine before.

I cant speak for sure because im not well versed on Cockshutts but any combine that old that is complete is going to be very rare. I have been working on and off on 2 oliver combines and they are a bit more expensive than working on tractors, and sometimes it comes down to making your own parts because there are none to be had. However on a funness scale of 1-10 working on and old combine has to be a 9 because they are so simple and easy to work on, but trying to remove some of those old berrings can be nerve racking sometimes so thats the -1. Then when you are finished you can be one of the proud few that can say you took on a challenge that few in the old farm equipment world had the guts to do.

I say GO FOR IT!!!

If you expect to get parts and 'wages' from a restoration-forget it.If you restore to save it from the scrapper and to preserve history-go for it!It must be a'labor of love'.it will make a darn nice 'showpiece'.A one of a kind item.

The Cockshutt No. 7 was one of the earliest Cockshutt combines made - there was a No. 6 which I believe was the first, the No. 7 seems to have been updated a bit. My dad's first combine was a No. 6 he bought in 1942 (it was a year old when he got it). Here's a picture I scanned out of the No. 7 brochure:
