It's too darned cold to do anything outside today, so I thought I'd post some pictures of my "new" combine I bought the other day. It's a '79 model with only 3100 hrs on it and a 220 header.

Not to be nitpicky , but your 6600 would have to be a 1978 model or earlier as the 20 series came out in 1979. My 79 7720 had a 367XXX serial # for comparison. Darn nice shedded 6600 you got

Thanks, guys.

Sorry about the year, the previous owner had it advertised as a '79, so that's where I went wrong. I knew their last years were in the late 70's, just not when. Can anyone confirm it's a '78 then? it is SN 254849.

Anyway, It's a belt drive with 3100 hrs. I am the 3rd owner, the guy I bought it from had it for almost 20 years and said It's only been rained on once that he can remember the whole time he owned it. Sure looks like it too. NO rust, just a little dusty. All of their fields were close to home and they had a big open front Morton to park it in at night.

Looks nice and nice original paint too. With a little rubbing compound it should shine up like a new one. There should be a lotta life left in 'er. We had a '73 6600 w/gas engine and gear drive that we traded on a 7720 in '79.

Thanks abunch for posting this Tom.... I didn't know there were any 20 series built in '89. Also confirmed that my 6620 is an early '88. Thanks again.

That's a nice looking 6600. Where are you located at? I see you have some green grass in your last 2 pics. And who did you get to haul your combine? I might need someone to haul a combine for me within the next month.

sunmerikahani,

Go to www.tractorhouse.com. there are several 6600s for sale in the US and Canada. Some nice ones in the 3000 hours plus range with $4500 plus or minus asking prices. The 6600 would probably be a good machine for your pakistan venture. There are some cheap ones for sale that would be good parts machines to send over with a couple of good ones. Since you are also wanting to harvest rice, check in the Arkansas market for a rice machine and for cylinder parts that you could use to convert when they harvest rice, a conventional cyclender is not the most ideal

If you want some personal assistance, feel free to PM me.

Hey tractor8100,
I bet you'll recognize this combine, It'll be working beside the 6600.

Hogman,
I'm in N. Central Kansas. The pictures with the green grass were taken by the previous owners, they were in the ad for the combine, probably taken early fall. I had a local outfit haul it for me.

I had wheat and then I double cropped some beans on a few acres. It worked great, beans were tricky with the rigid head, but I got most of 'em. The combine preformed flawlessly.

Brett,
That 55 was our main bean machine for a few years before the 9400. Seeing those pictures brings back memories of bean cutting, especially with the other 55 you got from us without the cab. I remember as a senior in high school going out in january, 1970 and cutting beans with a couple inches snow on the ground. The header just missed the snow and was going as low as it could. Glad the 55 is working good for you.

Combiness, that 55 in the pictures was almost to the junkman if Brett had not come along.
