Default Pictures-Identify This Nice Old Pull Type Combine





Pastor Rick whom has a great online photo album on Flickr gave me permission to post these pictures so that we can identify this dandy old combine.

He took these pictures in Emmons County,North Dakota which is full of old combines.Combines like this were never used around here and were before my time so I'm not much good on them.

This combine appears to be in good shape and needs to be saved.

It is probably a Gleaner R (which were avaliable as early as 1929 maybe before) The auger header was pioneered on Gleaner I think and the left side header mount is unusual for most pull type combines (except Gleaner) as almost all prairie and hillside pull type combines had the header out the right side as one faced forward on the tractor or combine if one had a guy punching header rather that a power lift.
Gleaner I would think was a southern plains combine. Noone ever heard of them in the Northwest till about the time just before AC bought them. A few had local machine shops put levellers on them and soon AC offered one in the late 50's here.
I know Holt (Cat) and Harris came to the triangle area around Great Falls in the early days as farming was similar to parts of the Pacific Northwest. Rumley (later bought by AC) was also an early popular combine. The Red River (oliver) was also a popular combine especially in the Dakotas and Minnesota I think as it originated in that area. MM (Twin City) would also be a early maker of combines for the northern plains too coming out of the Twin Cities. MF also had a foot hold in the plains before the sp days though they were a small player generally until the 1944 combine caravans.
I would think that combines came later to the spring grain areas like the Dakota's and Canada due to the spring crops and swathing for combines became a common practice.

Note the gravity unloader system. No seed coat damage with that system.

Looks a lot like the model "F" that I took some pictures of a while back:

I am harvesting corn not 5 miles from that machine! I drive by it everyday on my way out to the field. I have been going to stop and get some pics to post here. If anyone wants more detailed photos, let me know and I will post them.

Sorry I did not even see this post earlier, due to work and it just being hid amonst the many.
It is most definitely a Gleaner. The dead giveaway being the header auger. Gleaners NEVER had drapers, which were the conveyance systems of choice during that vintage. Any other make prior to WWII would have had the draper [called an "apron" also back then.
Nice find and it needs to be restored.

Get us some more pictures.Thanks.You must live in Emmons County,S Dakota.

There must be tons of old combines sitting around that area as Pastor Rick puts them on his Flickr album all the time.

I am done working there just yesterday. But I still have one machine to haul home from there. If its not too cold I'll drive out there for some more pics. When we finished corn and sunflowers there it was 11:30 pm the wind was blowing 45 mph and the temp was + 1 F degrees. I couldn't wait to get done and get the machines back to town so we could plug them in to get one loaded and home. I live 100 miles north in McHenery county ND.
