I purchased this IH-76 pull behind combine in the beginning of September and immediately put it to work.  I threshed all the spring and winter wheat that was shocked and stored (red fife and turkey red), netting about 30 lbs.  It was a blast and although it was not set up perfectly the first time, I got a clean enough sample to run through the fanning mill.

The goats and chickens alike had a feast afterwards.

The following week I reset the threshing clearance, speeds, etc and threshed the buckwheat followed by peas.  After initially turning their noses up, the herd really took a liking to the buckwheat and pea trash and ate up every scrap.  I think I netted 20 lbs of buckwheat.
