Default TC 32-52 Thresher

I am not sure why threshing machines have always excited me but this summer I bought a nice original TC 32-52 for my tractor to run. The only thing is that almost all the literature I find doesn't list this size!!! I was wondering if anyone has a serial # guide for the threshers or if this is a short production run? And does any other stakkers have a TC threshing machine and what size? Just Courios!!

I have a 28" Twin City, to go with my 28" Minneapolis Special and 32" Minneapolis. I think they're pretty cool, too. Have seen one other 32" Twin City. Would love to own one one day.

Mike

Getting harder to find. I found this at an auction that wasn't listed too well. Wasn't sure if I should have bidded on it or not but when the scrappy just about had her I couldn't let it go to that demise. Especially with all her belts and the fact she had been shedded her whole life. The Thing is a monster and very well built. It has a few animal issues that I am dealing with but nothing terrible. After buying her though then I had to figure out how you haul such a tall wide heavy thing. 10,300 lbs according to book, and it barely cleared hwy limits for height. A local show volunteered the haul and she is now safely in a brand new pole barn. But after buying her I then decided to look in the tool box and found a well preserved TC Thresher owners manual and a TC Tractor 20-35 owners manual. Ao i guess the 27-44 should handle her. I didnt go to the auction for a TC Threshing Machine...But came home a proud owner of one... But the scrappy didn't!!

I think the one thing that stands out on this giant is the wheel size and structure. Each spoke is adjustable and the rear wheels are about 16 inches wide and 3.5 ft tall and the fronts about the same. Like to find a junk one to get the trucks for a cook shack.

All those belts and moving parts make them kind of fascinating.......
Do yourself, and maybe a bunch of others (ESPECIALLY with that 20-35 manual) and have some professional copies made before it's too late........
Save the originals and work with a copy.......
