Gleaner combines 85th anniversary decal & logo
All 2008 model year Gleaner combines, both R5 Series transverse rotor machines and the axial rotor A5 Series, will have this logo as decals on both sides of the exterior, as a badge on the steering wheel hub, and embroidered into the headrest of the operator's seat.

They aren't grey. A Gleaner is silver painted and the older one's are galvanised. One of the best looking machines there are.

We call them silver seeders here :-D

Were a good machine in their day but left behind by alot of the newer machines such as the Lexion these days.

Otherwise, the new series are good combines with lot of new technologie. I don't think a new R75 Gleaner will lose it from a Deere or a Case.

Lexions would run rings around them.

A lexion is not a American built combine. Mostly a European made machine is more hightechnical and modern then a American machine.

TC there is nothing wrong with any machine they all do a good job usually capacity, and how much they throw over the back has many contributing factors like crop conditions and how well the machine is operated by the operator.
if one was better than the other then everyone would own the same machine. In our area there is an even spread between case, JD, and gleaner. there is a few yellow machines around and a few masseys, All machines have their good and bad points. In My opinion nothing will ever beat a Gleaner for getting a clean sample, has much to do with the accelerator rollers and the huge wind blast it can use with these. As far as Lexions go i could travel 300 km around SA and not see one in the crop al all.! they dont exsist in big numbers here.
hope you get some spring rains down below in the coming weeks

Re: Gleaner combines 85th anniversary decal & logo
You are silver in one eye Andy & black in the other LOL :-D

I am talking about the Lexions in a world wide scheme of things; very popular in Europe, NZ, parts of USA (different colour there).

Not alot around in parts of Aus, I guess it is their cost. Any one who has had one will tell you they are the best combine they have run, I guess this extends to alot of machines (JD, Case IH, Gleaner, NH, MF, etc).

Only 4 Gleaners around my area, L2's & an N-6. Older machines, well passed their use by date. NH is quite popular here. There are 2-3 Lexion's in Tas that I know of, a few more come in from the mainland during harvest.

Regards,

TC ;-)

PS; Hope we get the rains sonn too ;-)

You can download product literature there too.

Re: Gleaner combines 85th anniversary decal & logo
I must agree with Andy on this one. All combines these days are pretty good, no matter what color they are. Althought I am always surprised at the large capacity of my Gleaner when I compare it to other brands of combines. I know that Lexions are very popular in other parts of the world, but we don't see them a lot around here. By the way, did anyone else notice that the new Gleaner axial flow combines, Masseys, and Fendt combines are all the same machine!?

No real surprise Luuk, as AGCO owns the whole show.

In our area we see mostly John Deere and Case Combines. And New Holland is starting to become quite popular also. I wonder how long it will take until Case and New Holland just combine their machines into one combine as they are now the same company anyway?

Re: Gleaner combines 85th anniversary decal & logo
I guess thats the way of these big corporations Luuk. I guess it comes down to sales in the big markets around the world, EG; the USA & Europe.

Re: Gleaner combines 85th anniversary decal & logo
Here in Belgium it's mostly New Holland, John Deere, Claas and very few Massey Ferguson. In the northern part of the country, there is the factory of New Holland Combines, in Zedelgem. I went there last year with Open Factory Day. Nice to see all these machines in the factory hall.
I also like the colour of a Gleaner, but I haven't seen one in real life. I think there must be very few of it in Europe:-(

Gleaner's wont be sold in Europe because Agco has other combines they sell in Europe like, MF, Fendt. A Gleaner is an unknown brand in Europe and the market for this machines is to small.

But in the USA where they have a market share & the Gleaners are traditionally a popular combine it is a different story.

Re: Gleaner combines 85th anniversary decal & logo
Yes that's right. But in the USA won't be Fendt combine sold. And european combine's like some MF's also.

Re: Gleaner combines 85th anniversary decal & logo
Yes it must be an interesting market, CAT LEXION, JD, CASE IH, GLEANER must be the big players in the Nth American combine market.

The machines in Europe would be a totally different look & the makes would be different; Claas, New Holland, JD & Case IH would be the main players, I would think.

Don''t forget the Laverda en Deutz-Fahr machines

Re: Gleaner combines 85th anniversary decal & logo
I guess they are popular in parts of Europe but those four I mentioned above would be the main players.

Re: Gleaner combines 85th anniversary decal & logo
JD, NH and Claas for sure. But about Case IH i'm not sure. Case IH is not one of the best sold combines in Europe like the big 3. I'm not sure about Case IH will sell more combines in Europa then D-F or Laverda.

Re: Gleaner combines 85th anniversary decal & logo
This is an early semi mounted Gleaner I had posted earlier. I can't remember what tractor is hiding in there. I think it might be a Fordson. It looks like it would still work.
The order of combines in the states is probaly like this, Deere, Case/IH, Gleaner , Massey, New Holland and then Claas Lexion Cats.
Deere and Case/IH are close and Gleaner is a strong third.

Re: Gleaner combines 85th anniversary decal & logo
Here is a rare old Allis All Crop Self Propelled combine. Not many made as Allis bought Gleaner at the same time.

In the 40's and 50's Allis owned the combine market in the US. They were all pull types then. They were light weight, inexpensive, and was said it to harvest everything from birdseed to cocunuts!
My father said they had a Deere and an Allis and the Allis would run circles aroung the Deere. Eat weeds without plugging. You still see many pull type Allis in fence rows yet today. There must of been alot of em.

Do you also know som of the last AC made combines in you're area that are still working? Like the big N series as a N5/ N6 or the N7. They are wonderfull to see.
