Early IH Combine

Postby Brandon Webb » Tue Nov 28, 2017 1:21 pm

Found this surfing this morning, looked really nice. I know you'd need an H, M or C to pull it but what exactly could you combine with it? Any play farm marketing you could use it for?

My brother used to cut oats with one like that.

Then they just sell the oats to like a feed mill? Or did they process the oats into something? When i think combines I think corn because that's all that's around here and it's rare. I guess you could feed oats to horses? I've heard of rye and wheat but never understood the market.

My brother didn't plant enough oats to sell. He had 2 miniature donkeys he fed them to and my dad grinds his own corn into cow feed (he keeps about 12 head) and would add the oats into that. My brother sold his square baler but he would bale the straw afterwards as well and sow a yard or 2 with it depending on how much he had. The old combine was fun for him to play with but it mostly just took up shed space and if you had something wrong with it, it was usually a 100 degrees when it happened. He has a Gleaner self propelled with A/C on it now and only messes with soybeans.

Do you have to re-seed oats like that or would they come back next year from the stubble?

You have to reseed them. He would buy new ones cause the bugs would get in them in storage and they wouldn't come up good so he just fed them.

Looks like a #76, mid '50s model. I'd want at least an H to pull it, not sure how a Super C would handle it.

It would harvest most any small grain--wheat, oats, barley, etc. as well as soybeans.

My old IH 52R combine has setting information for harvesting/threshing just about anything with a seed except watermelons and corn!

I would want an M or like power for it. An H probably would handle it in a lower gear. I have not run that combine but have run a Massey Harris Clipper which I believe is comparable. Oats I think would be OK with an H and maybe other grains if cut high but get into some wind blown rye and an H ??? Bottom line? If what I had for power was an H I would use it!!

Super A. Dad had a 52R which I was too young to run but it had it's own engine. An ok machine but not the biggest.

West central Iowa, Grandfather sowed oats and red clover in early spring. Oats provided a cover crop for the red clover. Oats combined in June or early July. Shortly after the oats were combined, the clover was ready to be cut and baled for hay.

Most of the oats were sold to a local elevator. Some oats were retained for chicken feed and mixed into the slop for the hogs.

Mid 1950's one grandfather purchased a Case pull type combine similar to the one pictured. Prior to the combine purchase, oats were thrashed using belt driven thrash machine.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Yeah mine has a Cub engine on it. I've seen pics of Cubs pulling them, tried it once, never again......

Some have the cub engine, the early ones, like dad's used a continental. There also was a change from a round grain bin to a square one. I believe that the engine change was first thus if you have a square bin it is a C-60 engine while round could be either. Maybe Jim Becker can chime in.
It was possible to get this with an engine or PTO driven and with a bin or bagger. I have seen just one with a bagger. Vern

Yep, Continental engine or PTO power, Bagger or tanker. I'ts been a while since I researched it but I believe the square grain tank came first, but not long before the Cub engine-- the Cub engine didn't happen until late 1949 and I believe the square tank came out in '48 or early-ish 1949. Mine is one of the first Cub powered machines, the power unit # is 580.I have owned two 52Rs and one 42R, (same combine but with a 4' cut, smaller grain tank, and pto drive only.) Almost all the machines I have seen in the southeast were baggers, my 42R and Continental-powered 52R were, had to get my tanker out of Iowa, back when fuel was reasonable....

The PTO powered combines are much less "busy" on the left side. You have to be able to either remove the power unit or stand on your head to service the right hand side of the engine. But a Super A or similar has no problem pulling the engine powered version as long as the field's not wet, and it's a lot easier to match ground speed to field conditions.
