The N-5 was probably one of the best N series combines especially the series 3 which should have been PACed and RIPed a great 6 and in some conditions 8 row machine. It is the N-6 with the lighter drive axle. The engine is basically out of the 7060 tractor with 190hp at the flywheel the N-6 was based on the 7580 at 225hp FW. Your statement about engine issues bothers me though. CT

Dealer lied. Dad ran one for several years in corn/soybeans. That thing was a corn eating machine. Ran an 8 row head and had some of the cleanest samples the elevator had ever seen. They have clean grain capacity of 12 rows so running a 4 or even 6 row on them might blow some out the back but the thing would really eat corn. Maintenance nightmare though. Really need to get into a RX2 series before they fixed the big issues.

We looked at one the dealer said they were great bean machines but not worth a crap in corn or wheat

N5 was the first Gleaner rotary. Make sure it has ALL updates! Talk to an experienced dealer to double check- don"t take the owners word without proof. Later machines were much better.

Today's Featured Article - Madison's County - by Anthony West. Philip Madison has been a good friend of mine for quite some time. He has patiently suffered my incessant chit chat on the subject of tractors for longer than I care to remember, and on many occasions he has put himself out, dropped what ever it was he was doing, to come and lend a hand cranking handles, or loading a find onto a trailer. Although he himself has never actually owned or restored a tractor, he was always enthusiastic and always around helping with other peoples projects. ... [Read Article]
