John Deere 55H first Wheat after 42 years of rest!!!!


1954 John Deere 55H combine. John Deere's first production self propelled Hillside combine! Brings back such great memories of combining soy beans with my pop back in 1969. My pop and me (I was 12) rebuilt a John Deere 55 with a Hercules Engine. Fresh coat of John Deere green pepper paint, new belts and new wood on the header. It was a beauty. Pop let me operate while he walked behind to see if we lost to much beans. I will never forget those days. We combined soy beans, rye and corn (with a corn header bought at an auction). I enjoyed those days with my pops and thank the good Lord for every minute!
