What can you tell me about this old machine? The serial plate says Minneapolis-Moline model G and serial #72526. It is a 12ft. cut and has a Hercules 4X4.5 flat head engine. There is a reel for the head but wasn"t with the machine in the pics. I"m guessing it would be from the thirtys or fortys. Is there any interest in these old machines? Any value to collectors? Don"t worry....this one will not be goin for scrap. It is 99%complete.

This is a pic of the G2 MM combine that Dad had; that's him on the JD. The combine could be rotated around the axle to raise or lower the header, either from the tractor seat or from the operator's platform on the combine.

No unloading auger, just a hopper slide to unload into a truck.

We didn't like that G; it was the sorriest excuse for a tractor that we ever had. We learned later that it was made on a Friday; we think that they must have used parts that had been rejected during the week.

It just kept coming apart or breaking down. It came with both ends of the crankshaft machined wrong so we couldn't hold the clutch plate or the flywheel on. Also came with one bent rod that we discovered a week after we got the tractor new. It developed a big sand hole in one of the cylinders, etc, etc.

It was the last JD tractor we ever had on the place.

They are a PITA to move so that really kills the value. There are guys out there that are crazy enough to collect them (I am one of them I have a G4).

We had a G2 with a Hercules 4 cyl engine. Can't tell for sure, but it doesn't have the operator's platform that the G2 had - or maybe it's just missing. Our MM combines just had the short header for picking up windrows. That one may be an original G that is older than the G2 that we had.

We also had a G3 with a MM "Z" engine that was a lot more powerful than the G2 with the Hercules engine. The G3 was a lot better machine than the G2; our G3 with chain drives would gain on the newer G4 with all belt drives.

Both of the MM combines went for scrap after they were worn out; no market for them at the time.

It looks old. I doubt if anyone will use it anymore. No more will be made. Should be put inside to keep it from the elements. That is all I can tell you about it. Looks like a neat old combine.
