    John Deere 935 never sold in the UK but similar to the 950 I think.

    Not liked by many but this is clean and small by todays standards.

    See to have had a good reputation. Several of them used to work around here. Didn't seem to have too many problems.

    I think it will be difficult to find a tidier example only done 1600 hours.

    I saw that machine on eBay and it's a credit to all it's former owners. You can tell it hasn't done much by the paint on the table auger. Of course all the usual things have to be looked at. Beater bars, walker bearings & shafts, fan, sieve box, trunking elevator, etc. But your friend has got a bargain. I used to squeeze 200 acres out of a Standard easy enough.

    Here she is working today, he has fitted a cab from another Senator so looks have changed quite a bit !

    That is good to see and proves there is always more than one way of removing the moggy hair! No doubt some would scream why bother, contractors ...... but it does give a small grower a bit of control over when and how.

    Clean her down well, take off as many panels as you can to let light inside, spread mothballs about liberally, and don't wash her until just before next harvest.

    My old Dominator has just completed her 31st harvest - and this year it cost, in spares from Manns, about 500-00. I reckon that's cheap harvesting.

    Point taken. About 180 acres. Still think that it was a cheap harvest.

    Nice machine although that is not a Claas or Cabcraft cab but a Fortschritt one off an E512 or something.

    Niels , you may well be correct , he had the cab on another senny before, he had to cut the front of the grain tank back vertical to get the cab on, but its quite a nice job and a tidy cab with padding, fans, radio and all.

    Not saying you can hear the radio much though

    indeed probably got to do another neighbours 40 acres patch next year too. certainly this year looks a lot of folks have struggled with contractors or large machines in the wet.
    all hoovered out inside, greased up, painted the bright bits with diesel, in the back of the barn now not the quickest but made a good sample, now other than occasionally start it, its full of antifreeze and tyres are up etc (newish anyhow) is there anything else to do to keep her right?

    If it is an easy job, then removing the sieves is a good idea. I know that i have to fit oilseed rape sieves anyway, and so for me it is a necessity rather than just removing and replacing (next summer) the same sieves.

    Don't forget the mothballs! Rodents don't like the smell - and renew them about three times during the winter. If you run out, raid the Missus' knicker draw!!

    If you don't have to move her until next year, if you can take the weight off the tyres it will help to stop the sidewalls splitting.

    Everyone is always having a laugh about Bonhill Fortschritt, and any Eastern European kit, but back in the days they were quite advanced. Good cab to be in at the time with lots of space. Later E514 machines also had aircon etc.. Here is a photo of the E514 with cab, E512 is a bit more sloping: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi..._514,_2009.jpg
