Posted 8/2/2017 06:33 (#6162678) Subject:Gleaner M2 any good?
south western Ontario.
I have a gleaner F2 long body with the 4 cylinder turbo and power fold auger, Just looking around at other machines as a backup, Came across a Gleaner M2 with 15 foot flex head.. Gear drive not a hydro. Just wondering how it compares to the F2? Is it a lot more capacity? better features? Easier to hook up headers/ switch crops etc.
Im only harvesting around 90-95 acres and 120 next year but hoping to keep expanding. If I bought the M2 I would use it as my main machine and the F2 as a backup
At the same dealer there is a little massey 300 diesel with a flex head, I ran a gas 300 last summer cutting my wheat but no flex head so sold it.. Maybe the diesel 300 would be good enough for a backup machine.
