If it was not so far away . But hauling would kill it . I took a quick look but did not see it . And no i am not driving one that far . A late model 750 would be nice with a 6 row head and a 15-18 foot bean bead . But here again the trucking would be more then the combine . The longest combine drive that i did was like 67 miles and that was a Ford combine as it had no road speed at all. I did a lot of road travel with my 300 and 410 and they were slow and i tired hard to stay on the back roads . Good smaller combines still work good around here with our small fields and narrow roads. Ya just can not find them .

That's the way it is here in Tn nobody wants the old small combines like them but at that price someone could add on some shipping and still have a good combine.

This spring is the last chance for the combine to find a home, I advertised it last year also. If it doesn't sell it's going to get the hot wrench. Like you say, there just isn't a demand around here for them.

The older MF combine have very little value around me here in Iowa. I see MF 750,760,850,and 860 selling for scrap iron price. If some one needs the Perkins motor some times they may sell for a little more.

Just saw a MF 860 Gray cab sell a few weeks ago at auction. It had a 6 x 30 corn head and a 20 foot grain platform. The machine only had 1900 hours on it. The original owner was selling it. The combine was in really good shape. The owner swore the machine had never set outside. It looked like that too. Still shiny. Whole thing brought $3500. I saw it being cut up a few days later when I went back to get some things. I asked a local combine salvage yard owner why he did not buy it. He told me he could hardly give MF combine parts away.

I do not know of any still being used around me. There are some of the newer rotary ones around but none of the old cylinder walker ones anymore.

Are they hurting that badly for older combines back east? Our local MF dealer sold an 850 to somebody in New York sight unseen for almost $20,000 and the guy that traded it in told me that it was about ready for the scrapper. Pretty but wore through and the buyer paid the freight. If he was happy with that deal I'd be surprised. You can't give those older MF machines away around here once the Axial Flow IH machines showed up that was the end of them around here.

Don't sweat it. With all this white stuff coming down, it is hard to think about a combine.

With 4 heads... at that money an iron buyer will get it. Sad. With it I could keep mine going forever.

If you can get it to me cheap, got a wad of green Franklin pictures. Worth lots more back east. My local MF dealer would get 10K for that without running it through the shop. I gave 7K for mine from an individual, and put 3K in new tires/belts/bearings into it.
