This is the one that has the automatic header control for which I was searching for a parts list a while back. It also has automatic steering, intensive separation and the Harold Trimpe cylinder bars, which I do not like. In our own side-by-side comparison, the other 642 was equipped with brand new factory bars and concave, and did a far better job. The one in the picture was in my barn in Wellington until it blew apart in a late summer wind storm in 2010. I didn't really want to drive it 25 miles to the main farm, so it just sat out until now. When I went to pick my beans, the unloading auger wouldn't swing out, because the telescope of the PTO had become corroded. Enraged at myself for allowing this to happen, I dropped everything and decided that machine wasn't going to get rained on one dang more time. It was always thought to be a major hassle to haul it, but it turned out to be a snap. I was a little nervous about the 13' 6" , I was stopping at every bridge and creating a nuisance. Today was the last nice day in northern Ohio, and I got that thing in the barn about 2:30, we got bombed with snow shortly afterward; and I felt pretty good about that. Next summer I would like to find a 6-30 corn head for the automatic steering, or a more modern grain head. We're still running the old pitman heads with Hart-Carter FCB. As far as reliability goes, the old 642s are on par with anybody else, but... in terms of parts availability for a 36-year-old combine, they are the best.
