Re: 590r report
Quote:LOL! Funny listening to you guys discuss things, I enjoy hearing other peoples opinions on the lexions, I appreciate the humour. The turning radius is unbelievably bad, almost to the point of hilarity unless of course you have to run it for a fall! I found that I would just use the turning brake a lot, it will be interesting to see how long those brakes will hold up with that much use.
Hey Don are you the fella from alberta that is in the john deere ads? There is a Don from alberta who runs a 9860 and a 9520 4WD, I've seen the adds, I'm pretty sure he's from three hills. Also, how much of a capacity gain do you think the 590 has over the 9860, all conditions, how many acres/sep. hour do you get in a season. Jester, you run grain carts, am I right? How many acres/rotor hour have you averaged with your 970s. We had looked originally at getting a 9070 along with a grain cart, because we thought with the lower price, we might be able to get similar capacity as the 590 with no cart. Once we really got dealing however, the price of the two machines was quite similar, so the 590 seemed like a no-brainer. What kind of price difference have you been quoted between the 9070/590. I'm curious, we always get a lower sticker price from deere, but the financing is terrible, I guess if your paying cash then that doesn't matter much. Service is a moot point for us as we are serviced well by all brands out here. I liked the 970 when we demoed it against our 480r, it probably would have been our choice if the 590 had not been available.
OH OH busted. I was wondering how long that would take.
Capacity? See previous post.
We've averaged barely 12 ac/hr lately lots of straw, terribly shoe limited in canola. Hey did you know a Deere only adds hours when header on, others threshing unit pretty sure.
I agree the prices for all 6 BIG ONES are similar, in fact I wouldn't be surprised if a 9870 cashes out higher than a 590R now. But be aware programs, promotions and dealer mood subject to change without notice!
You are very lucky to be served well by all dealers.
Thanks for the humor comment, life's too short and I want to go out laughing.
Green lights all.
