Randy Stanley uses this antique John Deere combine on his small farm southeast of Humboldt.

A 50-year-old John Deere combine stis like a monument outside Randy and Becky Stanley’s home southeast of Humboldt.

Tines hang from weathered wooden planks on the reel, ready to shove soybean plants — before long — against cutters and on into the intricate mechanisms that separate pods from stems, and then beans from pods.

The familiar green paint is faded in places, but mechanically it is sound — because of Randy’s TLC.
