Good looking "green" machine. You will enjoy running it. Lots more comfort than the 642. I would love to come and see you when you get in the field this year. Will bring back lots of good memories. As I have told you earlier we ran two 642's and a blue 76. We covered a lot of ground with those three combines. Good luck!

Preacherman,youve got an open invitation to come run this one anytime I am cutting.I made the second trip to Dalton to get the rest of my parts in september off of the other 642 I bought and i was going to try to try to meet up with you to get a bite to eat but time just didn't allow.Me and my cousin left home at 3:30a.m., drove all the way to Dalton(250 miles one way),stripped the combine(most of it with the "hot" wrench) and drove back home all in the same day.Now I want to pick your brain a bit--Do you rember what kind of capacity the 76 had compared to the 642? The 76 is only 4 walkers wide at 42" v/s the 642 at 5 walkers wide and 52".The screens in the 76 are longer than the 642 but not as wide but if you do the math there is only 1 square foot difference in the total square footage between the two.I dont think the cleaning area will be a problem. My big concern is that the 42" feederhouse is going to severly limit the combine.Any thoughts?

As best as I can remember, it has been almost 30 years now, but the 76 had no problems keeping up with the 642's, if it didn't run faster. Maybe because it was I see where you got a 20 ft header, we ran 15's. I also think the bin capacity on the 76 was a tad bit smaller. Sorry, I'm probably not much help on the technical side of them, long ago and I was a teenager back in those days.
