#12 (or so) Combine

Just a question for you combine nuts - I'm taking a little trip east next month, and know where to find a quite nice J-D combine. From what I remember from seeing it 2 years ago, it's a #12 or very similar. Not real familiar with the older ones, but would like to know if this is something I should pursue. It would look mighty fine restored, but they aren't the easiest things to house, and my buildings are pretty full. Any thoughts ?

We never had a 12A combine - Dad bought an Allis Chalmers All-Crop 60, which was less money - he operated that way (go for cheap), and he taught me well!! LOL.

Go for it if you can get it bought, hauled and stored!!

I just got a model 30 combine, the replacment for the model 12. Although it has a foot wider cut than the 12, it's really wide. In my book, it says the 30 is 10 feet, 11 and a half inches wide overall. They do look real nice in parades, but transporting it is really hard because of the width. It stuck out 2 feet on each side of my trailer. I bought mine for custom harvesting. I think you should buy it because although their usefulness is going down, they still thresh and clean grain as good as a modern combine, just not as wide of a cut. Remember that these are always going out to the weeds or to scrap, so the value is increasing also.

Ron, I think any John Deere implement is worth saving. Is the combine a 12 or 12A? The 12A's are still pretty common (but still worth saving), but a 12 is very unusual as they only made them for one year. The 12A's are left-hand cut, whereas the 12's are right hand cut. I know what you mean about room- my toys have outgrown my toy box, too! Good luck! Hope this helps. Mike

Thanks for the input. Not sure as I said, but looks to be a 12, and the "A" or not, will find out - at least now know the difference. Am taking a measuring tape as well. Am actually going for a disc and cultivator, and whatever else might fit on the trailer, but the combine is sort of on the way. I'm out here in B.C., and we don't farm much for grain crops (no flat areas big enough to bother much except far northeast), so if this looks as good as I remember, and I can't justify it, I may throw this out for anyone interested. Have a "D" to pick up later this summer in south central Saskatchewan, so will be past the combine a few times to check/recheck for shop fit. Actually asking about preserving a J-D on here is a real no-brainer, right ? I'll get photos this trip and post for exact ID. It could also be a 10, check out the similarity on this link. Thanks

Notice carefully on the photos from the link you posted and you will see that both of the "12's" are really 12A's

I have used both a 12A and a 30. It would be fun to run each of them again. As long as I don't have to make a living with one.
