Sounds to me like you and your dad are good at detailed maintenance. A neglected combine would never last that long. A new combine bought today won't be running 35 years from now. Not because of the mechanical part, the new ones are well put together. The electronics will be a nightmare a few years down the road and computer components won't be available. Jim

Just me on the maintenance,All my father does is sit his butt in the seat and ride!I love him to death but he even has the gall to pull up beside me wanting me to get off my combine to go over to his and clean the windows!I bought him a $400 cabcam to watch the hopper so he wont run it over and son of a gun the first field of corn we pulled he ran the first hopper over and I had to call him on the radio to make sure he wasnt up in the cab asleep.I have to babysit him all the time but I wouldnt trade the time I am spending with him when we are cutting for nothing.One of these days he will be gone and I will have some great memories to laugh at.
