I was complaining that it gets COLD in the combine cabafter the sun sets.I was told that there is a 12volt heater available.Never seen/heard of such a thing.I would think that it would draw a LOT of power.If they do exist,where can I get one?Steve

IH must have got the heaters figured out by the time the Axial Flows rolled out. There is no happy medium it is either 50 or 100 in there. I have to crack the valve and shut it off in 5 minute intervals it seems.

I had a 12v heater that plugged into the cig lighter in my pickup. Wouldn't defrost the windshield or keep my hands warm, the plug got pretty warm though. I wouldn't waste money on one like that.

You can find 12 volt heaters that plug into a cig lighter in most truck stops.

Delta,
They make them that just plug into a lighter socket. I used one on my K. Made it almost comfortable to do corn down to around zero. Pulled about the same as a pair of lights.
I put a 3 plug lighter socket in the cab and ran a 10 ga wire back to the alternator.
Worked for me!!

I replaced the leaking heater in my Gleaner F with a unit from NAPA several years ago. Turned out to be made in Ohio by the same company that made the origional. Measures about 10 x 10 x 10 inches. Compleat unit cost less than a new core from Agco.

I had an old Stieger on which all the climate controls had been removed/disabled. I snooped around the internet until I found just what you're talking about. I wasn't afraid to install it as the Steiger had a huge alternator, and it wasn't far from the cab to run the heavy wires. But it didn't give off much heat. I don't think I'd want to put one in a combine. Plus, without any heat from the engine/drivetrain, the little electric heater probably won't even be noticeable. I took one of those box heaters out of an old backhoe I would give you. But one of us is on the wrong end of the country!

The energy in a gallon of fuel is roughly divided into 3rds. One third is used to power the machine; 1/3 goes out the exhaust and 1/3 goes out through the coolant.

You might as well use some of that wasted energy by tapping into the coolant for a heater in the cab. A little plumbing and wiring and you can be warm.

Steve: I ran a JD 95 for years and the factory heater under the seat would run you out of the cab. Don't any of your combines have heaters??? The cabs on the 45,55,95,105 all used the same heater. It was mounted under the seat. There was a fan behind it to push the heat out on your feet.

On things that did not have a factory heater I have used propane tent heaters with no problems. A cylinder would last a few days and it kept you nice and toasty. You may have a window fogging issue but usually if you run a fan it does not happen much.

Here is a link to one kind of like what I had.

JD, in my 105 the heater was facing the door so the door stayed warm and clear but the windshield frosted and my feet were cold. I unbolted the heater and turned it so it blew forward at my feet. BIG difference. I had to put a valve in the heater hose behind the seat to keep my feet from melting! Jim

I have used a 12 volt heater, they do help a bit but I would recommend going with with one using your engine coolant, One from a school bus sounds like a good idea or with a little ingenuity and tin work you can make one out of a car or truck heater core and fan.

The Gleaners with Deutz engines use engine oil for heat.

Got hot water heaters in my Case combines. About 12"x12"x12". On cold nites combining corn till about 2am they do a great job. You can open your coat and take the gloves off! Should be able to find one in a salvage yard out of a older machine.

Case must have used a better heater than Massey or IH did because I froze my a-- off many nights wearing insulated coveralls in a 715 and a 510.
