Leasing combines???

Does Deere lease combines like you can lease a tractor or pickup?

Roughly what do you think it would cost to lease a combine?

just kind of exploring options.

leasing combines

Would having your crop custom harvested be a option?

Not just renting a combine I mean a full lease.

If I hire custom cutters it would be over $100,000 a year bill.

Deere will lease anything they sell, as does anybody, or you can lease from another financial institution. Your cost would be dependant upon size, hours of use, headers, lenght of term etc. Leasing is a good way of locking in your maximum cost of running a piece of equipment.

What a brilliant statement! There are probably farmers that have a custom bill twice that. What difference does it make what the total bill would be?

I would like to know all the information I can about this ASAP. I would be interested in leasing just about every combine I could at this price.

Better give all of us this dealers number, I will even drive a case for that kind of money. I would assume closer to 155 an hour.

If the rented machine does 15 acres an hour it would take 43.3 hours to take off 650 acres. At $155/hr that works out to $6716.67.

Seems like not a bad deal when you factor in depreciation, wear and tear, replacement parts, loosing warranty after owning for a year, getting priority service if the machine breaks down in ideal harvesting conditions, and less man hours to take off 650 acres with a class 8 or 9 machine opposed to the smaller machine that other producers would own to cover that much ground with.

At $55/hr it would work out to $2383.34. or $3.67 an acre plus fuel. At that price I'll take 6.
