Grabill, IndianaI posted previously about your opinions on a Gleaner and Case-IH combines and I appreciate the comments. Since then we found a Gleaner R52 that is in very good condition. The owner completed all of the updates possible and fixed any problems that occurred. Tje thresher has less than hours one the separator and comes with both heads. We will use it for corn, soybeans, and a little wheat on acres.

What things shuld we look at on this machine before signing the deal?


St.Clair Co. IL.Do you have any idea what yr. it is? is it a cummins engine or a Duetz? we have a '98 and it has MOST of the improvements AGCO put on these machines from the factory, overall happy with it have done some mods. to it, but still want to do more, one thing to look at is the floor of the grain tank they seem to wear quickly against the floor. simple machines very easy to work on and just look over the belts, chains and sprockets for the clean grain and reclean. Bob

Consider replacing the cooling fan pulley. Not expensive and an easy job, but causes problems if it fails. This is on the cummins engine.

Brassring makes a good point - these machines, like other colors, have many running changes or improvements. They were first built in '92 and last built in , so that's quite a run with many changes along the way. Engine is one of them. The long shoe came in '96 and was a very good thing. Higher fan speed came in '98, along with (gasp) painted panels. Yes, Virginia, Gleaners do now have paint. So without knowing the year, general items to protect yourself against larger possible investments would be to give the rotor and cage a thorough look for no rock damage, chopper also if it has one. There are many, many things that can be done inside for upgrades. Condition of feeder floor and chains/sprockets, accelerator rolls and gears, main clutchshaft bearings (run machine, listen for noise/check for heat), does it have variable speed feederhouse drive? Check operation of rock door or trap if it is equipped with the trap. Check cab/monitoring functions, A/C, etc, etc. Does he have the short and long tooth chaffers - you'll want both if he has them. Ask the owner what he has installed or check yourself for reverse bars (you want at least 2 in). Check bottom of grain tank floor and unloader tube elbow for material getting thin or this has probably been re-lined once already, but is a key area of wear to check on all machines. There's just a bit to start with. Good machine the R

Cambridge, southwestern NebraskaAt 2, hours or so I needed to replace the cage on my 62 Kind of expensive of course but chrome cages last about that long. I needed to replace the feeder chains about every 1, hours or so. Looking back I wished I had traded at about that 2, hour mark and not put the expense into it. ALTHOUGH, I did run it to 3, sep. hours without much problem so I got my money back.
Good machine overall. Try to get a '98 or newer. Most of the major refinements were made by then.

Grabill, IndianaI should have mentioned that it is a '94 with the Deutz engine. The current owner stated that he planned to replace the rotor cage and feederhouse chains this year. He said other than that everything else has been replaced or upgraded on this machine.

Martinsville, OhioProbably half of them burned Jim. You have to blow the engine compartment out regularly and there is extreme weather you really shouldn't harvest in. ONe friend's burned but he got one just like it so that says a lot about that machine.

This farm had one when I moved here and it was a very high performing machine. There were many around here thanks to Mayer and still a few left.

That combine was ahead of its time as many Gleaner products.

The parts are high here but service is good.


Garrett County, MDA 94 with a deutz that needs feeder chains and a rotor cage???

IMHO run away fast. You don't want a deutz. You do want a 98 or newer with cummins. I actually have a 98 with a cummins. good machine.

Central IllinoisWe had R52 with the Deutz engine the power this machine had could not compare to the next one we had with a Cummins, the low RPM beeper would come on continuallly with the cummins. That being said we traded our Deutz because we did not want to be the owner if there was a major engine problem, expensive and slow availability of parts. We had very few engine problems with ours keep it clean and watch for oil leaks this is an air cooled and needs to be able to get air to the block. The rest of the machine is very accessible to do repairs on, we never have the dealer come to work on ours. The rotor can be on the ground in about 30 minutes with a loader or a forklift.

NW WashingtonAt hours it is about ready for all main threashing wear parts to be replaced and an air cooled German engine in a combine sounds like trouble to me.
I would keep looking.

IowaI like the Gleaners, but would rather have a 62 series with the Cummins. The Gleaner design just works better with the extra width (in my opinion). Extra room in the feederhouse makes it easier to feed beans without plugging. You'll need to be more careful about even feeding from the head with the The extra length of the rotor cage makes for nearly zero rotor loss in the 62 with little or no effort. The extra width also allows for a lot of cleaning area. Those problems can be overcome in a 52 with very good results. It's just easier to do with a That being said, the 52 is a lot of combine for acres. The Deutz engine is fine as long as it works. I can get parts for the Cummins at a lot of places besides the dealership (got a starter from a truck repair shop on a saturday afternoon for example). Having to wait for a part is not an attractive option to me, so I'm a bit afraid of the Deutz.

I'm not sure the cage should really need replaced at hours. AS long as it is not damaged, it ought to last a long time. The cylinder bars and the helical bars inside the cage could very well need to be replaced at hours. That's the time to make some cheap and easy modifications that will make it work better than new.

Good combine, very poor engine choice. I would urge you to find a different machine.

Northern CAI will be the odd guy here. I like the Cummins, but the Deutz is a good engine, too. We have a R50 and had minimal minimal engine problems at hours. I like the simplistic part of the engine. Also, if there is a problem, you can pull down one cylinder in season and get going again. If the machine is a good one, don't be afraid of it. I run about acres of wheat a year through my R Our wheat is close to a bushel average. The air cooled engine is about the most fuel efficient engine I have been around. I have many air cooled engines on our hay balers, and those Deutz's have been great, too.

SK.. in Frozen Cold Western CanadaIf anyone knows someone who happens to be looking for a Good 'ol R52, here's a quick link to pics of our 'trusted old R52' that I had a Deposit on last year, but gave back since the fellow had a crappy crop and just couldn't afford to pay for it.. I guess I'll post an AD again soon, hoping to find it a good home.. Truly, about the Nicest Condition for one of these you could ever find, regardless of the year, I think!! YES, these are the Original Tires, and you CAN see the Factory Sizes still on them.. =)

** We are in West Central Saskatchewan, about miles from Minot, ND * Mapquest *

** Lots of comments on the pictures to explain, I have last year's AD with Full Description that I'll FWD/ Post later.. Happy and SAFE Farming to all out there!!

** Sadly about to start seeding here, but the there IS Snow in our forecast a few days away.. CRIPES!!

Gleaner Manufacturing Company

American farm equipment company

The Gleaner Manufacturing Company is an American manufacturer of combine harvesters. Gleaner has been a popular brand of combine harvester particularly in the Midwestern United States for many decades, first as an independent firm, and later as a division of Allis-Chalmers. The Gleaner brand continues today under the ownership of AGCO.


Gleaner Combine, produced between The tractor on which it is mounted is partially visible.

Gleaner combines date from , when the Baldwin brothers of Nickerson, Kansas, created a high-quality and reliable self-propelled combine harvester. They decided to use the "Gleaner" name for their radically redesigned grain harvesting machine based on inspiration from "The Gleaners", an painting by Jean-François Millet. Gleaning is the act of collecting leftover crops from farm fields after they have been commercially harvested, or on fields where it is not economically profitable to harvest. In the broadest sense, it is the act of frugally recovering resources from low-yield contexts. Thus, with the Gleaner name, the company evoked a positive connotation in potential customers' minds, of a brand of harvester that would leave none of the grain behind. A combine harvester combines the reaping (plus or minus binding), threshing, and winnowing functions into one machine, hence the "combine" part of its name. To that list, the Baldwin brothers' Gleaner added self-propulsion. Earlier combines, the so-called pull-type or tractor-drawn combines, were towed by tractors.

The original Gleaner design was mounted on a Fordson Model F. It had a retail price of USD $ FOB at the factory in Nickerson. This design was manufactured between and

The Gleaner was one of the pioneers in self-propelled combines. They were often considered the "Cadillac" of the industry because of this feature and because of their solid engineering. Buescher ()[1] credited the design principally to one of the brothers, Curt Baldwin, and explained that it focused on the needs of custom cutters like the Baldwin brothers themselves: contractors who move north with the harvest season, providing harvesting services to farmers. It resulted in machines that were reliable and useful, which benefited not only custom cutters but anyone who bought a Gleaner. The short wheelbase and axle track allowed the combine to fit on a truck.[1] The grain header did not need to be detached for transit, because it fit over the cab of the truck.[1] Buescher said, "Since custom cutters didn't know where their next parts supply source would be, Baldwin designed his combine so that it wouldn't need parts."[1] (Buescher's tongue-in-cheek point is that the machines were designed and built well so that need for repairs would be minimal.) The frame was "like a bridge" in its strength.[1] The bearings were chosen with service in mind: large and good quality (to obviate failure) and of common sizes (so that the operator could carry a small stock of spares in his truck, and have the size needed when a replacement became necessary).[1] The Gleaner's exterior sheet metal was galvanized (zinc plated), providing superior weather resistance. As Buescher said, "Baldwin reasoned that most of his combines would sit outdoors. Texas and Oklahomadust storms have a way of peeling paint off of machinery."[1] As a result of the silver color of the zinc plating, the Gleaner brand ended up having a distinctive color (just as Allis had Persian Orange, IH had red, and John Deere had green), despite the sheet metal not even having any paint.

During the Great Depression, owing mostly to the collapse of the farm economy and the Dust Bowl, the Baldwins' company entered bankruptcy in the s as equipment sales plummeted. William James Brace acquired the company with his son-in-law, George Reuland. The pair, along with other investors, brought the company back to profitability and maintained ownership until During World War II, the factory converted its production to war materiel.

By the late s and early s, other farm equipment manufacturers were offering increased competition to Gleaner, having introduced their own versions of self-propelled combines.

In , Allis-Chalmers acquired Gleaner. This represented commercial renewal for Gleaner with the production and marketing success of various new models and technologies. It also represented a great gain for Allis-Chalmers. Allis was the market leader in pull-type (tractor-drawn) combines, with its All-Crop Harvester line. Acquiring Gleaner meant that it would also be a leader in self-propelled machines, and it would own two of the leading brands in combines. The Gleaner line augmented (and later superseded) the All-Crop Harvester line, and for several years Gleaner's profits made up nearly all of Allis-Chalmers' profit.[2] Gleaners continued to be manufactured at the same factory, in Independence, Missouri, after the acquisition.

In , Gleaner released its first rotary combine, the N6. It was soon followed by the N5 and N7. The latter was the largest combine of its time, with grain headers as wide as 30 feet (&#;m).

In , Allis-Chalmers sold their farm machinery manufacturing business to Deutz AG and became known as Deutz-Allis, and in its North American operations became AGCO. Despite several ownership changes, the Gleaner brand never ceased to be produced or marketed. Between and , Gleaner lost significant market share to other manufacturers with broader dealer bases and farm equipment product lines that had marketing and customer service advantages. Another problem for Gleaner was that some of their combines used the air-cooled Deutz engine, a departure from water-cooled engines predominantly found in most other industrial and agricultural applications.

In , AGCO moved the Gleaner manufacturing operations from Independence, Missouri to its Hesston, Kansas facility, which featured modernized manufacturing equipment and techniques. It also centralized the engineering and production functions into one location. The Hesston facility is 35 miles east of Nickerson, Kansas, where the Baldwin brothers started the Gleaner company in


Some of the firsts introduced by the Gleaner were: an auger that replaced canvasdrapers, a rasp bar threshing cylinder instead of a spike-tooth arrangement, and a down-front cylinder that put threshing closer to the crop. In Gleaner was the first manufacturer to use electro-hydraulic controls, an innovation that other companies didn't offer until nearly two decades later. Gleaner was also the first in the industry to offer a 12 row corn head in

Gleaner also explored use of turbocharged diesel engines before the competition. Records from October list the cubic-inch turbo-diesel engine as being available for the model "C".

Another Gleaner innovation was a "rock door" to protect the machine from damage due to stones that it might pick up while harvesting. If a Gleaner combine ingests a rock, the rock door simply pops open and drops the stone on the ground, preventing damage to the cylinder and concave bars, unlike other machines with a "rock trap" that the operator must periodically clean out or dump.

A current Gleaner and world first is that they created the first Class VIII transverse rotor combine. This happened when AGCO introduced the new Gleaner S88 series combine in


Gleaners are still in production under AGCO. The Gleaner brand is marketed in North America, South America, and Australia.[3]

The two models that have been currently available, and in production since , are the S67 and S77, which are Class VI and VII combines, respectively. Three newer models have come out this year () and are now available and in full production, which are the S96, S97, and S98, which are Class VI, VII, and VIII combines, respectively. These combines still utilize the transverse rotor which was originally introduced in [4]
