Ideal

Supposedly, this behemoth Ideal is going to be in corn again this fall. Any sightings? Be interesting to see how this 52000+ lb. elephant will work on wet ground. Don't see how this thing is going to have much of a future in North America, Cat dealer sales rep told me they want no part of it. Substantially higher priced than Gleaner (at nearly 2X the weight), not likely to have Deere or Case converts. Titanic? Thoughts? Seems the Versatile combine will likely have higher performance and resale.

a couple of local BTOs who run Deere are suppose to be wanting demos.. really interested in cutting down on the number of machines/operators they need now.

bitter much. Im told its a huge capacity increase in small grains. Combines are used outside of the corn belt and to date most are only built for it. Its time someone other then Claas shook the Deere and CNH tree in the combine market.

I think if they really want to prove it's performance, they should bring it out to my place. See if it can chew through this tough crap covered in snow! Now that would impress me!

Im told the 8 is at least 1/4 bigger to 9565, and a 9565 is no slouch either.

I think the 8 is two rotors? Should be at least another 1/4 to a 9.

Yes 8 is 2. I would hope so for what will be the enviable price increase. The one I would really like to know more about is the baby single rotor. As I have said before it will either be the value priced machine or the dog imo.

Of course they don't, they only sell industrial equipment.
