Modell 66 combine

I am asking about an old AC 66 combine. I have found two of these (1 “field ready” the other for parts). Both for $200. How do I move them about 100 miles? What size trailer and truck? (Pick up and 16-foot flat bed with side rails ok? This might be worth the risk but I want to know more about what I can do with this size machine. I am planing on planting about 4-5 acres per year of grain (whet-oats, etc) for cattle feed. I assume this machine with the right size tractor will collect this grain. What about a trailer? How big? Is the multi crop unit I keep hearing about? Will this combine corn? Beans such as pinto, or cowpeas? How much tractor do I need. .
Where can I get a manual for it?

Thanks for the advice in advance.

You can not pull it because the hitch is off-set to one side, and your truck and combine will be 12 to 14 ft. total width. The wheels have bushings not bearings, therefore they will not withstand even slow road speeds. I haul mine on a 16 ft. trailer with my pick-up with little trouble. It is kinda a lengthy explaination, e-mail me and I will explain (if you still need the info.)

My uncle had a model 60 with a motor and my dad had a 60 PTO. I'm assuming the 66 is similar, pull type with 5 or 6 ft. cut. I don't think it will fit on a trailer. Pull it with your truck. That will be a long 100 miles. Besides the usual wheat and oats, my uncle had an adapter for his that would thrash kidney beans. You had to pull, dry, and rake the beans. The adapter replaced the cutter with a pickup head. I don't recall him using it much, maybe it never worked right. Anyway, I doubt you would ever find one these days. Good luck.

These combines are awfully hard to trailer because of their width. If the tires are good, I'd grease the wheels real well, put a slow moving vehicle sign on the back, and pull them home. I'd take a spare tire or two, and avoid major towns and expressways. If the canvases are good you got a buy. good luck. TED

$200 is a reasonable price for both of them . you are lucky that you get both of them for that price you could be paying as much as 300 for just the good one.

For 200 dollars the seller should deliver and buy you the highest price lobster meal money can buy.
