Are there any dealers that anyone knows of that carry mac don headers and gleaner combines? Or any mac don dealers that are experienced putting them on gleaners? Just nervous about mating the two together without someone with knowledge to set up correctly.
Yost at St. Francis, Kansas handles both Gleaner and MacDon. When I bought a MacDon in 2008 I got it from Yost. However when you buy a header from a different company than the combine good luck if you ever have a problem. All they can do is point the finger at each other. I didn't have a problem except getting the speed control of the header to read with the ground speed of the combine. Gleaner said it was a MacDon problem, MacDon said it was a Gleaner problem. In 2012 I went to a DynaFlex and glad I did.
I do like the MacDon way better if the AHHC don't work, Our's quit for some reason last fall for a few days and it was a pain, with a 40 footer on uneven ground. The DynaFlex is great when evrythings working.
Storrers in Iola carries both and pushes the MacDon. If buying a new MacDon a rep will sometimes be available. I have been involved in setting up one on a 76 and a 77. I believe it is easier to calibrate than the dynoflex.
