3 Questions:

1. How dependable are New Idea one-row corn pickers (I do not know the model)?

2. Can you still get parts for them?

3. What would you expect to pay for one in good shape in the upper midwest?

Thank you.

Thanks for the advise gentlemen. I was actually looking for a one-row picker, due to limited space in my storage building and the very small acreage I have in corn at any given time. The picker was in good shape with the exception of having BOTH tires blown......not just deflated, blown sidewalls! Whoever bought it would have to spring for new tires or replacements if they intended to use the machine. Sold at auction today in Northern Illinois for $300. Just thought I would pass the info along.

Im in one of those high dollar picker places Paul talks about. Sold a 323 NI for $1300 in pieces. I had taken it apart to paint it and guy came along and offered me that for it. Needless to say, it was history. Here, ear corn brings a premium, local co-op pays $1 a bushel over shelled.

Leroy has the price right.

Here in southern Minnesota no one wants to putz with a one row, and few bother picking any corn any more, so certianly under $100 around here. I bought 2 row 300 for $30 in great shape a decade ago, bought a 6A for $100 decages ago, and just got a 324 for $165. All 3 went right into the field, good condition. I would expect to pay scrap iron price for a one row picker around here.

In some areas 'out east' the one rowers bring over $1000.

Usually the one rows are older like the 6A, and are kinda slow - built for 100 bu corn, not 200 bu..... Good machines tho, & Agco supports them amazingly well for their age. You will pay for that support tho....

Just my opinion, as Dad wouldn't spring for the extra money to get a New Idea picker, but, back in the day they were the best-built, cleanest-picking machines there were. Heavier than the other pull-type pickers, but lasted forever.

Not sure about parts availability, but I think New Idea has ended up in the Agco family.

Good luck,
