John Deere 5200

I spotted this old John Deere 5200 while on a sanity cruise the other day. I am unsure of the true vintage of the machine but it clearly has that old time look. Maybe the 70’s? I conducted a five second Google search and found no usable information so I gave up. If you know more please leave a comment below.

    It’s 1972-78 Self propelled forage harvester. It has a 3 row Corn head on. It could also have a silage head for cutting hay. I have a farmer in my neighborhood that still uses it. It is designed to pull a silage wagon. Nowadays, this type of JD harvester cuts 8 rows of silage or haylage using a 500 horse diesel at a rate faster than a man can walk.
