I was out in Ohio for a while during the fall season and I saw tons of that stuff. It created soo much dust. What year is that combine? It looks like a 90s model.

this was my first year I missed harvest and I was bummed. But the wheat wasn't that great this year so I guess I wasn't missing much:usflag:

I was in the field one day when storm came up and my dad kept on going because we wanted to get as much done as possible. I was on top of truck pulling the tarp back so he could dump when lightening stuck a tree within sight of the truck. That ended our day...we headed for cover and I never forgot that day. I kept thinking thereafter it could have hit me standing on top of that metal truck bed since I was as high as the tree.

Engine is still beside cab. I"m not sure what year exactly they moved the engine to behind the hopper but I think it was late 8o's or early 90's. I would guess that one is some where around a 1984 model.

I'd say you probably are right on with that guess. JD changed the color of the cab roof to green in like 86 or '87. Not really sure if there is any other way to tell by looking at a picture.

Thanks for the pics!!!!!! It's nice to see the farmers doing there best. We have lots of farms around here plus lots of Amish. It's amazing to watch them work.:)

Thanks for all the kind replys. I really enjoy farming, my family has been doing it for a LONG time...Dad farms part time and I help him. I would eventually like to farm full time, but we have no where near enough land for that. Not sure if there will be ANY money left in farming by the time i am ready to do it or not though...we paid over $2.50 a gallon for off road diesel to harvest the wheat and do the first-pass tillage, not sure on how many gallons we used...i would guess about 200 to 300. Then the way fertilizer and herbicide prices are...it just dont add up...

Now some John Deere combine history for those that were wondering. The combine is either a 80 or 81 model 6620. The original 20 series replaced the 00 series in '79. They ran till '84 with yellow cab tops, and then till '88 with green cab tops. The green cab top models were called "Titan 2".

The storm wasnt bad...cant rember, think we got about an inch of MUCH needed rain, but no hail. The wheat was from bad (~20 bu/ac) to average (~45 bu/ac).

I think they started with the 9600 combine in 1990 or 1991. Centered cab and move the engine aft.

Neat pictures.

6620's are good old combines. I started in a 7720 with a 20'grain head and 6 row corn. I run my friends 9510 now and what a huge difference. Nice pics.

You got a funny looking mower there, and it looks like your grass is dead, is it really hot there or something?

Just Messing with ya :)

Looks nice out there, I'd like to have a lot of land, but I'm not sure that I'd want to farm it all.
