Gleaner f2 sitting up
Guys, I live in south Ms. and have been searching for a used gleaner f2 combine. I ran across a f2 and L2 that have been sitting in a barn since 1990. I read up as much as I could before making an offer on the f2, the L2 was too large for me to transport. I looked it over for hours, the grain header that is on it is trash, but I will be combining corn so don't need it anyway. The combine has 600 hours on engine and 520 on separator. The cylinder bars look new, elevators are shiny, all belts look new. I rolled the engine by hand and it was free, it has the 4 cylinder turbo diesel. The fuel tank was still full of fuel. I paid about half what the machine is worth for scrap metal so I could not pass it up. I figured if it was a total loss I could scrap it and get some of my money back. I will only have about 100 acres of corn to combine so its size is perfect. Starting work on it tomorrow, changing engine oil, water, and fuel before trying to start. I have the user manual and service manual and a lot to learn. Any advice before I try to start it up.
