Only a couple days since I posted my questions about a viable Gleaner network. The silence is deafening with lack of replie. I tried to post into the Biener on line talk show with the similar question but couldn't get the site to work and post. Perhaps someone on this forum/thread will mange to get online to the question show and ask the question?
Hopefully AGCO isn't just interested in the strip from Texas north into Canada. CaseIH or whatever theyre calling it today has made some increased product sales here in the northwest. Hopefully AGCO will court for new dealers and do the same. Seems a shame to make a good product and then not make it available to potential customers around the world. Guys i've spoken with really like the Cases theyve bought. I would guess that some exposure to the Gleaners would get some interest up for them. Everyone who comes to pickup one of my JD 1590 drills asks about my new N6. While I was combineing my little farm last year several stopped to watch, talk and ask about the Gleaner. A little akin to finding a dinosaur skelton with all the interst and questions in what is a Gleaner and hows it work in the field? Most watchers were impressed with the speed of eating up a field. I was not able to get a really good bin sample last year and hopefully with more inspection/adjustments/ repair will get a good sample this year. Sure wish I had a local knowledgable person to help instruct in the correct settings for that good bin sample. 275 miles away is not real conveinient for getting expert help.
