I'm trying to sell my 4420 and I have a guy interested in it but also looking at a f2 gleaner.
are these pretty close as far as size and capacity or is the gleaner a little bit bigger?
He asked me and I old him I would find out.
Thanks

I'm wanting to upgrade to a 1440 IH. That and I'm not all that happy with the JD.

is the F2 a gas or diesel motor? it makes a difference! I had a gleaner F2(gas) and my neighbor had a 4420jd and he could get more done in a day and with less breakdowns! IMO i would say the jd is slightly bigger than the gleaner as long as its a gasser, if its a diesel then i would say they are about the same. Thats my 2 cents!

Which do you think is the better combine? I don't know anything about a gleaner but I know a JD is pretty simple to operate and adjust from form to beans to wheat. I have heard that gleaners are a bit more involved. I can go from beans to corn in around an hour from pulling out of the field with the bean head and back to a clean tank sample of corn.

Dodge, that is really a decision only YOU can make. Trust me on this.
What may seem hard or "complicated" for one person, may be easy for the next. You've got to be your own judge, and this starts by looking over both combines carefully and reaching up and down, along both sides of their separators to see just that. Check accessibility to grease points, moving parts, et cetera.
The last thing you really want, is any rift between your combine and you, based on servicing, ease of repairs and above all, operation.

With our F2 it took about 2-2 1/2hrs to change from beans to corn or vise versa, unless i had some help
we had to change a couple of pully's and belts, along with some chains on the feeder house that changed the speed of the heads.

i hope this helps!
