Hi. I’m about to purchase a 400 combine. The one I’ve looked at has a twelve foot header unit. What’s best method to remove the head for transport. ??. Advice would be very welcome.

very interesting to see that there are some combine enthusiasts. i have just purchased a 400 that has been shut away in a barn for the last 7 years. hoping to get her working again. i am still debating whether to go for a re spray or keep her original.
previously i got a clayson 1540 and got her back into working life. very interesting to read some of the articles on the 400's on here. nice to see a group of people like me trying to save these old girls from the scrap man.

Nice website you have there. Here some news from Belgium. I love the big old combines from my youth, and so I gathered 5 old combines, and also 5 tractors from the 60's and 70's. Here a picture of some of them, an MF 892 and 510, and a Claas Matador Giant.
There's also a Claas Mercur and a Claeys M103. They are all cutting some acres each harvest, except the 892. Both the MF's could use a restauration. But who will do this job?

About the tractors, it started with a Muir-Hill 121, then came a Ford 8000, County 654 and two MF 1200, one from your country.

Please let me some news from your activities.

Many greetings,

Thank you all for your kind comments!! This site is dedicated to the machinery, the workers past and present, who never fail to deliver, despite the changing times in this beleaguered industry, to keep us all fed!! Thank you!

An excellent site, it is good to see the collection of MF machines that you have been able to save from probable destruction and it is even better to see them working. My introduction to the world of Combines was also watching them at work in tbe sixties
on the farm where we lived. This was followed by a five year apprenticeship with an MF Dealership in Canterbury here in Kent where combines were part of the diet of machinery that we dealt with, I left when the company closed down in the early seventies so
the newest machines that I worked on were the 525 and it's brethren.
