Combine Modification
A friend of mine, Don Loth, and I decided to do our combining together and use one combine instead of two. We weren't happy with the table part of our 852 Massey Ferguson pull-type machine because it was lopsided, set too much off to the side. It had too much movement up and down on the right hand side and didn't feed dead center, which resulted in performance problems. Also, we couldn't run duals on the tractor.
So we mounted a header off a self-propelled combine on the Massey and extended the hitch. Now we have a combine table that floats over the land better, center feeds, and we can use duals. Performance of the combine was increased and we've got bet-ter visibility from the cab because of the extended hitch.
The modification was well worth the time, money and effort. It's not a Deere or a Case/ IH, but we have had little trouble with it. (Mel J. Pederson, Box 10, Prelate, Sask. SON 2B0 Canada)
