Allis Chalmers All-Crop 66 Combine questions

Hello-

My neighbor wants to sell me an Allis Chalmers All-Crop 66 combine as payment on some hay for $300 otherwise it is going to the scrap yard. It was shedded all its life until about 2 years ago. All paint is on it and no rust from what I see. The canvas is worn but operable yet. Should I buy it for this price? The other good thing is I would only have to haul it a 1/2 mile home to my farm. Are all the sickle parts available yet through Fleet Farm type store? There were about 2 gaurds broken or missing, hope the gaurds are not specific to this machine. What is a new canvas going to cost if I need to replace it? Unfortunately it will have to sit outside at my farm as I have no shed space. Can I remove the canvas if I store it outside? Planning to use it mainly for oats, and winter wheat. Let me know what you think. Thanks in advance!

I have to store mine outside. I remove the canvas, open any doors and clean everything out real good. The I put a canvas over the top, it comes only part way down the side.The reel and table end up outside the canvas so I keep them painted. It has worked well for me. If its windy in your area you will need to tie down the canvas real well and I run a rope around the top of mine so it can't whip so bad when the wind blows.I also cover the corners, etc that would rip a canvas with a feed bag.Its not the best system but its better than just leaving it in the weather.

Not a bad price but if you ever have a 72 you will thro rocks at the 66. That canvas thing is just a pain.

Well, it sounds like I should pick it up for the price, location, and condition. When the canvas wears out, is it possible to make your own? Is the canvas like the canvas material a trap is made of? Thanks for the replies so far!

Gave 200 for mine in useable shape 6 years ago. 300 is a good price, seen them on craigslist for twice that and then some. Get it while it is close, they are a pain to haul very far with a pickup.

Some of it depends on where you live. Nebraska you could probably leave it out. Pennsylvania it will be junk in a few years. Could you put up a shed? Maybe with some used material you could build a shed pretty cheap.

Yes your right, location does make a difference when storing outside.

$300 is fair considering yu can get around $250 for scrap.

Sections and guards are specific. Sections are pricey $5-6 each, guards only avaialble used.
Drapers depending on who sell them to you - $600-800 a set.

Storing allcrop outside is a bad idea. They dont take to the elements well.

That"s very reasonable for that condition. New canvas runs 4-500 thru Yaz or WCCO Belting. Store them inside the thresher housing during the off season, or hang the bundle from the rafters.......mice like to make them their home. I doubt you"ll find sickle parts at a Fleet store.
