Retrofitted Renegade

March 9, 2009 08:08 AM
For their second Smarter Harvester Tour, MachineryLink delivered another show-stopper. After the crowds surrounded their Buffalo Combine in 2008, the combine leasing company partnered with the team at Chrome Shop Mafia (CSM). The result is the Renegade combine. This 1968 two-row John Deere Model 95 "Corn Special" combine got full treatment from CSM, whose work was featured on many episodes of the CMT program, "Trick My Truck" in 2006 and 2007. The Renegade is boasted as the first unconventional antique combine restoration. The back section of the combine articulates 90º upward to reveal a complete audio/visual system. Onlookers step inside to see the display of the MachineryLink website, videos and presentations. The CSM crew removed all the threshing iron, but the combine can still move in and out of farm show lots on its own with a tuned up engine.

The Renegade Combine is an unconventional combine restoration project used by MachineryLink for promotion at ag industry events.
