Long Description:
Combines were developed to replace threshing machines, enabling the farmer to take the thresher to the crop instead of the crop to the thresher. The major advantage to this was a considerable savings in labour. The model 25 was manufactured in 1954 & 1955. This one probably has a 6 foot cut.

Initially, all combines were pull-type, meaning the farmer required a tractor to pull it. However, the combines supplied their own threshing power, having a small, usually 4 cylinder, gasoline engine on board.
Use or Purpose of Equipment: Threshing grain crops.

Approximate age: 57 years.

Manufacturer and model: John Deere Model 25

Still in Use?: No

This one is located in the back of the machinery display section at the north west corner the museum, aside a McCormick-Deering Thresher. The museum itself is about 1 mile north on Reservoir Road, which runs north off Highway 3 at the extreme western edge of Grand Forks.

Fee for Access: no
