Default John Deere 726 field finsher

I am looking at getting a 28' JD 726 field finsher with a rolling basket. Can anybody tell me what hp does it take to pull one and do they do a good job going through standing corn stalks. Also does anybody use one to incorporate urea on fields. I pull a 25' disk now to do the job of incorporating the urea. Would the finsher pull easyer than the disk.

Thanks,
Southern Indiana here!

Default Re: John Deere 726 field finisher

I have a 30.9 ft 726, and used to pull it with 300hp 4wd, also have 32.5 ft crumbler behind the finisher. 6mph is all it could do. now I have 375hp on it and it handles it much better. it will pull harder than a disk. I have used it on standing stalks but you have to go on a angle and even then it will plug once and a while, big difference in verities.

Thanks for your info!!!

I found a 25' so it should pull a little better so i will see i bought it Sat. I will pull it with a Ford TW-35 fwa putting out about 200hp.
Maybe using it sooner than i want to.......we need rain bad in southern Indiana.

Whats the spacing?

Ran a 33'9" 726 for several years on a 8760 and 9300 with 0 problems, about 7mph speed, 2" deep with a 5bar drag. Never ran angles, 9" spacing and it worked perfect.

Never incorporated anything but the faster you pull the better it does.

I have to agree speed is the key with the 726 i we have a 33 ft and pull with a 8970 and as long as you can keep it 6-7mph the corn stalks dont bother as they would at lower speeds i made a 1 pass this spring when it was wet to get the ground to dry up a bit better and well granted i throttle the 8970 back to 1800rpms at 6.5 at 2.5-3in deep it gave it a pretty good pull especially up hill i keep forgetting we can turn the field cruise off but since we have mostly 30 ft equipment we pull with the tractor we very seldom have to run it wide open which is nice saves a bit on fuel with the big beast
