Looking for information about the development and history of Gleaner combines.  Do any of the Allis Chalmers history books have a section about the Gleaners.   I remember  reading about them  some time ago, but just can't remember where.  Also is there a source to look up the specifications (Model numbers, years produced, serial numbers, quantity produced, engines, physical dimensions, cylinder and shoe sizes, ect.) for the Gleaner combines.  Thanks for any information

I think Norm Swinfords AC book had a lot of that in a section for Gleaner.

Greg is correct, Norm Swinford's book "Allis Chalmers Farm Equipment 1914-1985 has all of the history of the Gleaner-Baldwin combines.

The book mentioned above, called "A great silver" is an excellent book.  Good information, and a lot of pictures.
21 A-Cs ranging from a 1928 20-35, to a 1969 180D.

In my humble opinion .. I think up until  the early 80,s ..Gleaner had the best  combine  out there . Not so sure  now .. They surely dont have the support network like  the Green and Red   Dealers do ...Wink

Their conventionals IMO were still the best until they were discontinued in 86'.

so it is a pull type? pictures please if you can.
 
in response to the original post, the norm swinford book is great, we have noticed an error here and there but it is 99 percent accurate and a great reference.
Gleaner: the properly engineered and built combine.

If you need parts for your Gleaner, we are parting out A's through L2's, so we may be able to help.
