The M2 Gleaner is not one of my favorite combines. Allthough they did have pretty good pull out of the gates, they just don't handle that well in the corners. They are also known for feeling on the heavy side when doing a whip. On the plus side M2 is very easy to work on and seams to hold up well in dry hot conditions. I would say you best bet is to stay with the International... after all it is red.

You've obviously never got it up in the revs. The Gleaner will pull harder than the Int'l. Cornering is pretty good but you will need to make some suspension mods. The only real problem I've had is that once you lay it down, you're usually done for the day.

Why a 2 stroke of course. And that's while running a seriesIII 22 1/2ft grain header.

Ricky could win on it.

Bubba would fall off it.

Pastrana could backflip it.
