Is there a place to look up Gleaner serial numbers to tell the year of manufacture besides AGCO dealer? One in question is R5254041L. Didn't the longer shoe come in 96? Think this is 92-93 year comparing other #'s

Can’t help with the number but you’re really going to like the R series machine. I know the longer shoe for the 62s came out in 96 or 97.

I think it’d be a 94. I was told the numbering system was the model R52, the the class size 5, then the last digit of year 4 (makes it a 94 model) then the number off the line that year. My R62 is R6269xxx, class 6, 99 model. Dealer told me this anyway
Orange & Silver still earnin their keep on the farm: R62, Series IV D17 nf, 185, 6080, 6080 fwa, 220, 1968 D21, 7045, DT240.

Going from a cylinder to a rotary machine can be a little intimidating. If I can help,pm me for my number. There’s a really good Gleaner combine Dr. around here.      ( not me)

91/92 models were chain drives on tailings and clean grain elevators.  93 and newer had all belt drives for the elevators on the right side and the larger/wider R62/72 clean grain elevator size.    96 and up got the longer cleaning shoe.   97 got a paint job.

Comparing your number to mine.... mine is 56xxx and yours is 54xxx. I'm guessing yours is a '94 or' 95 model year. Now that is if my memory is right for my number. Mine is a 1996 model.

I'm going to farm more ground starting next year and figure on making the F2  earn it's keep but can't ignore the thought of something bigger. Have no problem keeping the non electronic conventional in operation and fix(not patch) things as needed. The rotories intimidate me and I don't know what to look for or at to access condition. They can eat so much material that high hour machine could be worn a lot VS the conventionals hours. Yes or no? I'm sure care makes all the difference. I need to start learning so I can make a sensible purchase maybe in a year or two. Want the most bang for the buck ya know.

An R-50 or early R-52 would be double the capacity of an F-2. They are simple and easy to work on. I know you are concerned about the big change but after a couple of days running, you will be all smiles !!!

If you don't have to wait then I wouldn't wait. The combine market is very soft so there are good deals right now. I was in the opposite situation and if I had waited two years before buying my 52 I would have saved $10,000 easily because of the very soft market in the past year.

When it comes to looking at a machine, it really isn't much difference that looking at yours.  Ya there are differences, but a belt is a belt and auger is an auger.  Bars on the rotor, what conditions.  There is a spiral channel that wraps around the cage.  Rounded of edge means its worn.  Gleaner has under the rotor cage a part called accelerator rolls.  They say you shouldn't be able to slide a pencil between those rolls.  To be honest, I have only changed out one set in the past 15 years and didn't notice a difference, but only do beans and corn.  Maybe more sensitive for wheat.  Very simple machines.  Nice cabs.  I have a 1995 R62 and 1989 R50 that I currently run.  Like the 62 slightly better.  Bigger bin and bigger throat.  Only Problem I have with the R50 is in beans with stems not quite ready and they wrap around the front feed chain rear drum.  I put in a rear chain and that helped a bunch.  But I do slug the feeder house in the R50 and never in the 62.  Rotor is easy to pull out.  I had mine out in 1/2 hour and probably could do faster if I was in a hurry.  Also I prefer a chopper instead of the paddles. I also run a 1640 CIH for the neighbor and overall I do like the gleaner better.
