Jd 9460r

Looking to up grade to a 2012 9460R from a 9400T. I have read a few old threads but just want to hear how they have been working out for guys? Any common issues or problems with them? Also since Iím coming from a 2 track should I try to find one with 800 IFís? Is the ride/traction that much better with IFís? Thanks.

We made the same switch but a 2013 9460R from a 9400T. Love the tractor, been very reliable. Have 800 IF tires and the extra flotation is nice, also seems to clean out treads better too. Not sure if ride is much different, only thing don't like is after they have been sitting for a bit and you get on the road it has flat spots for a bit that you feel while driving. Tractor has 2000 hours on it now and will keep it till probably 5000 or so. Also doesn't have DEF which is fabulous!!

Don't waste your money on IF, any equipment with IF actually needs to be heavy enough to make use of the technology. Goodyear told me you need to be upwards of 60-65,000lbs to actually make use of it. A 460hp tractor will be more like 50,000lbs and have the same tire psi weather its IF or non-IF.

As a farmer, you learn quick: ďYou donít get anything that you donít work hard forĒ

I’ve been really happy with our 9460R. Just make sure it’s been well maintained, fan drive greased, etc.

The hood is a bit heavy to lift, the hydraulic tank is poorly positioned to fill and warms your drinks on the cup holder, straw tends to build up underneath the front of the cab and the seals in the hyd barrels in the scv’s tend to go bad.

Probably one of the best purchases on the farm equipment wise. I’d definitely look for one with high flow hyd and premium cab. It’s a really nice place to spend the day.

Thanks for the replies guys.

Definitely looking at one with hi-flow hydraulics for the air drill. Iím pulling a 61í Morris C2, 430 bu tbt air cart and 5800gal ammonia wagon. Thinking I should be ok with power but I have found a few 9510ís with 1000 more hours for the same money or slightly less. Have a few hills but nothing crazy. Just want make sure Iím buying the right tractor since it will probably be on the farm for quite awhile.

the hydraulic tank is the only truly dumb thing on those tractors... you will find that the shield gets left off pretty quick. its tonnes of fun packing pails of hydraulic oil up a step ladder when you dump some oil.


also if it hasn't been done, there is a cap with a spinner in it to replace the factory screen on the top of the clean air intake. its well worth the investment. the air filters are really expensive and in some dry conditions canola and pea stubble being tramped by the wheels will make largeish particles small enough to come through that top screen and will plug up the air filters in 2 days.




only comment I have to consider is that the 9510/560 have heavier double reduction differentials and bigger rads.

Your comment isn't completely accurate. The engines are the same 9410-9560. The radiators and intercoolers are the same 9360-9560. 9460 scraper model has 120 mm axle shafts and planetary reduction differential. It can be ordered with 110 mm or 120 mm shaft and single reduction differential as well. Be sure to inspect.

+50-100 HP tune would be safe on the 9460. If you had a scraper model a person could go a bit higher if they were comfortable with it.

IF tires work very well when pressure is correct and tractor is ballasted properly.

We have a 9460R on 800x38 Firestones. We have it weighted up to 60,000lbs. Pulls pretty good. When it comes to 800x38 tires we actually prefer Goodyear tires as they clean better then the 23 degree Firestone’s. So far it has been a lot better tractor then the 9560R we had on triples. With the triples we needed to change our air filter daily. Now with the duals on the 9460R, it gets blown out maybe 2-3 times a year, even with it being on the grain cart.

I'm not here to tip toe through the rose garden, I'm here to bulldoze through the bullshit.

Pre air cleaner

Hey guys. Does anyone know the part number or anything for the pre air cleaner with the spinner. The parts people at my local dealer seem clueless and canít seem to find anything when I tell them thereís a different pre cleaner. So hoping for some help from anyone on here. Thx.
