I saw this combine at a steam show last summer, and posted some pictures of it on this site. I will repost those pic's now for everyones enjoyment.The attention to detail on this restoration is remarkable!! It was a grey overcast day when I took these pic's, and this unit still shone bright and caught everyones eye. I think the same fella restored this old road grader a year or two before.Bruce

I started running combines on a 125SPV. IHC had replaced a few chains with V-belts and had put on a wider rear axle in place of the tricycle tractor front. It would drive straighter than a 123 or a first 125, ie didn't cut around with every furrow or ridge, but otherwise was the same old machine. It could deliver a nice clean wheat sample but the feeder conveyer ran too fast and threw dust and chaff out like crazy. (That wasn't fixed until the 151 series) I don't think that it ran 1000 hours until it was about wore out. Over 100 grease zerks twice a day but the roller bearings running directly on the soft steel shafts never had a chance. The shafts wore down and would have had to be welded up to restore tolerances. Also no variable speed, just a four speed truck transmission with 3 somewhat usable speeds and, oh yes, chain driven wheels. If you really, really wanted to go between these three speeds you could buy different drive sprockets and cut and splice the drive chains to get a different ratio. I think we had three drive sprockets and picked an appropriate one at the beginning of each harvest and just drove around the field, none of this changing speeds every 100 feet. Life was simple!

That old 125SPV sure beat the old pull types, but today we run 8000 series machines with 45 foot heads and I don't plan on looking back!

I know it's only worth what someone's willing to pay, but do you guys think he's very far off? What about that weird self-propelled All-Crop a few months back? That would be worth about the same wouldn't it?

It IS rather pretty! Would be nice to have, if a guy had the proper place to store it; AND the wherewithal to purchase it.

Hope it goes to a good home. Would be a shame to let all that good work be undone.

It does look nice, but the price might be a little steep.

I"m sure that lots of time and money was spent on this great restoration but I"d agree that the price is steep..
