The CHEESEHEAD has been known to be a life saving item! Excellent safety feature, saved the guy that crashed his airplane, better than an airbag!

A six row would be substantial. Nothing wrong with an eight row either, of course the eight would require a little more truck power than the six. A grain cart is an absolute must. Doesn't have to be the biggest or the prettiest. Just something to transport the grain from the combine to the truck and to keep the combine moving. As far as a combine goes, any one will work. JD, Case, Gleaner, NH, all supply good machines. Just make sure to get one that has been well maintained.

I wouldn't be afraid to buy one at an auction. Most of the time you get a pretty good deal on machines. I might try to talk to the owner of whatever you are interested in before hand to get the facts. If you buy a machine without any background info, I would take it to a dealer and get it inspected.
