Hearís a thread with some good unplugging techniques for another brand that are interesting.

I actually found that an old Gleaner rotary can be reversed reasonably easy if itís badly plugged by taking out the two anchor bolts on the back of the concave since there is room and access doors just ahead of the engine. You donít need an aluminum ladder to get up there because it has a fold down stairs.

if this thread goes very long I suspect there will be some pretty precious comments about how the rarest combine in north America is gonna run circles around everything else.

An estimated 3.4 million tons of bombs were dropped by the allies in WWII, but Hiroshima was flattened with just one 10,000 POUND Fat Man! ;-)

I appreciate all who have responded, I think I've got my answers. From what I can gather, capacity seems to be an issue if you're going much beyond Class 7; - I'm not. All I want to push is 6-rows narrow (160 bushel +/-), 25' flex head (45 bushel beans/90 bushel winter wheat +/-) I can see where the intake to the rotor is a little hard to reach but, as mentioned, the rotor can be pulled quite quickly and easily, that is, if you can't throw it in low and slug it out; - no big deal. I like the simplicity, the weight and the serviceability of the machine. It's gotta be simple to work for me! ;-)

Thanks everyone! Cheers!

I used to run a couple of old R72’s.
Man they would go.........

Guess there’s still abit of Silver passion in the red blood.......

It seems you can look past our Sh-t stirring comments nocolourpreference and go with your gut. The 65 will serve you well. There’s a few mods you could do over the winters to come if you wanted to pimp it up abit.
The answers are all here in TCF.

Buy it you will like it. If you enjoy buying fuel and getting it up the ass doing a green light then buy a pretty one. They are about the only make out there now that you can actually do all the maintenance at home everything is easily accessible. Very low compaction, low Center of gravity, you donít need a ladder to service them, and very easy on fuel. Feeder house and straw management no longer a issue. Keep the accelerator rolls in good shape and shoe loss will be very low and sample wonít be beat by any other brand. Bearings? When did the USA become part of China?
