A local farmer has a 60 combine in his barn. No manual or anything. I was considering planting winter wheat. I am assuming that can harvest it, but does anyone know for sure? Also, does anyone have a used manual they want to sell? He has used it to harvest oats, but since he just feeds them, the husks stay on. I want to thresh the wheat so that we can use it in bread baking. I have never used a combine so any advice is appreciated. Thanks.

Wheat and oats setting was the same. When we cut and shocked corn wheat was drilled between the rows of shocks, in spring after shocks were removed oats was sowen in those rows. In cutting the wheat would cut till come to oats strip, empty machine, cut oats and put in a different wagon and empty machine, go to next strip of wheat and on back and forth. No changing the settings for that 5' swath of oats.

Manuals were available from Allis a few years ago, maybe still. The correct sieve for wheat has oval openings. Yaz allcrop may have them. Manual will give you all the info need to adjust the machine & they are pretty simple so you can figure out anything else.

In case you do not find an op manual- when you thresh the wheat, it should be clear of the hull, not like oats. Without checking the book, I would say the cyl speed would be 800-1100 rpm, concave clearance about 3/8 inch, (gauges on each side of the cylinder), chaffer about 1/2 to 5/8 inch, sieve about 3/8 inch, maybe less. You want it open enough to let the threshed seeds fall through- not the chaff. Lower cylinder rpm in mid-afternoon when things are dry and hot, higher rpm in AM and late PM when straw is tough. If grain is getting ground, lower speed, open concave. Speed makes feed. Open the door on the left end of the machine to check if grain is being threshed from straw. If not, close the concave first, increase cylinder speed next, until all heads are threshed from straw. Rest of the operation is cleaning trash from grain. Best to get the op manual, tells what to look for at each stage, and how to correct it for a good grain sample. If you have no experience with a combine, you need the manual just to ID the parts I mentioned! Farmers have only one chance each year to plant or harvest- too late when you screw it up!

Ebay usually has manuals for this machine or ty yazallcrop ( i believe thats the website) and its called the 60 because of the width of the cut. That website also carries parts and such.

The combine is called the All Crop 100 because the op manual lists settings for harvesting over 100 crops, including wheat. Wheat threshes easier than oats, so the settings are similar. Several basic settings, cylinder speed, concave clearance, chaffer opening, and sieve opening. Have you checked with AGCO to see if a reprint manual is available? dealer locator at www.agcocorp.com.

The All Crop 100 was the selfpropelled machine that took either a 9' or 12' head, had nothing to do with amount of crops it could handle. The common pull type machines are the 60 that is a 5' cut, the 66 that is a 5 1/2' cut and the 72 that is an auger machine that is a 6' cut, then there is the larger pull type 90 that is an auger machine of about 7 1/2' cut and the smallest the 40 that is a 40" cut straight thru machine unlike all the others that discharge to the right. And there are 3 different versions of the 60

Yes it will harvest wheat. They are known for being able to do a pretty good job of cleaning the grain. You probably will need to do more cleaning after harvest for what you want to do.

Thank you for the replies. What do you mean by cleaning? Do you know how you would do that after the harvest? We have a few large families in our area that bake bread from scratch. We raise animals, but this is our first foray into this. Thanks.

Today's Featured Article - The Mud Daubers and the Old John Deere - by Jon Zehnder. I have a 1941, John Deere Model A tractor I have owned for about a year and a half. This is my first (in case my wife reads this, "FIRST") tractor and it has been a learning experience. After considerable advise and assistance from local tractor nuts and the forums of Yesterday’s Tractors, I had finally got it running pretty well. I have tuned it up, overhauled the carburetor, installed a borrowed, rebuilt magneto, installed a new Power-Trol, patched the radiator, installed new front wheels a ... [Read Article]
