Hi all. I've got myself into something of a pickle; I just bought an old Allis 90 PT combine and now have to move it 90 miles through Ontario. Wondering if it'd be possible to tow it this far with my uncles '02 Tacoma (a few moderate hills) without much wear and tear on his truck. Any opinions from anyone would be great!

I will also suggest filling the gas tank on the tow rig just before you hitch the combine to it.
With that combine in tow, you can't just pull into any gas station along the way because the rig just flat won't fit.

The truck will handle it fine. Just check the wheel bearings on the combine as noted and flag that sucker for all you're worth. I always used to tell people, it's not the cops you needs to worry about, it's Great aunt Zelda running the Caddy into your load and calling her nephew Seymour Goldfarb of Dooey, Cheatum and Howe to sue your pants off!

If you referring to an AC Allcrop 90, this is how I "decorated" mine in tow, The 90 will let you move the hitch into transport mode. Bring good tires, check the bearings for heat especially at the beginning or re-grease/rebuilt them before departure. Some use back roads, others like I prefer regular highways with wide shoulders, you make more time and have to stop less frequent for traffic. Get someone to follow you, to prevent fools to want to pass you right before bridges!! Bring lunch and coffee and enjoy the slow ride!!

Bought a "72" and pulled it about 100 miles back in the '90s; made a hitch to bolt on the right side of my truck bumper ('93 Dodge one-ton dually/after-market BUMPER) so the combine was centered behind the truck. Had checked the thing out (tires, hitch, etc) before the day I went to get it. Hooked to it at daylight on Sunday morning and started as soon as the sun was up. It had bushings instead of wheel bearings, so I stopped every few miles and put a few shots of grease in em'. Drove about 35-40 mph and had no problems.....on some 2 lane and some 4 lane (no interstate) U.S. highways.

I wouldn't be too concerned about the truck. Just make sure to start stopping WAY ahead of the corner.

I have a 66-1955- that has the Bras Bushings in the wheels and you don't want to travel with it. Take a wheel off and see what the 90 has. I was thinking that was one thing that was changed on the 90. That's the only thing wrong(design) with the 66 machine. They do a great job, I still use mine.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

I hauled my 66 like 180 or so miles home at 45-50mph. Just stopped every 20-30 miles and gave the hubs a couple shots of grease. When I got home I pulled the hubs off and the bushings still look like new.

I'd be more concerned with the wheel bearings on the combine. I may be mistaken, but I don't think that combine has the automotive style tapered wheel bearings. I think it uses just simple bushings instead. You would definitely need to stop every few miles and grease those wheel bushings.
