John Deere 9630T with new drill

Hi guys, I have a 9630T with high flow oil pump. It is currently stock hp. We are pulling a 61’ JD 1830 10” spacing with 2.5 inch knives single shoot and 430 bushel cart. It just plays with the current setup. We have been looking at some new drills and are considering a Bourgault 3320 76’ with MRB’s, 12” spacing and a 7950 cart. Switching from 10” to 12” spacing will give us similar shank numbers but will be pulling MRB’s sometimes and the cart size will be doubling.

Just wondering if you guys think we will have enough hp and traction? If not enough hp, thinking about tuning it up a little bit with in reason. Also with the high flow oil pump will that be enough oil flow? By Bourgault’s website we’d be within recommended specs for oil flow but looking for some experience if this tractor will pull it. Thanks guys!

Depending on soil type and topography, I've seen that drill combo pulled with less hp. Should be fine with the oil flow too

Thanks for the help! We are 80-90% flat but have a couple hills. And range from some real heavy clay gumbo to light sandy stuff. It is dry here right now so things pull nice but wouldn’t want to get caught with to big of drill when it’s wet either. I’ve heard the T tracks are not great when it’s wet but would a 9630 with tires weighted up be any better to pull a drill like that?

Deere never offered a high flow pump on the two track until 9RT, you would have a 48gpm pump, not enough

X2 on the oil flow. Maybe if you just run one fan ever.

Okay I must of been misinformed on the high flow oil pump. If I could find a high flow, tire duals or triples 9630 and was weighted up would it pull that drill or would I run out of traction?

I have a 9630 with 78gpm, 800 duals weighted to 50000lbs pulling 76’, 12” with 7950 tank. Flat land, no problem...0-5% slip. Was running out of power climbing big hills, had to shift down then lose momentum and start spinning. Had a 50hp tune put on, now I don’t have to shift but still lose traction on big hills. These hills aren’t moderate slopes, they are big hills.

So if you are 80-90% flat, that setup would be no issue.

Ok sounds good thanks! A tune will probably definitely help. Glad to know the 9630 will pull that setup though and won’t be undercutting ourselves on hp but maybe traction that route. Guessing there is no way to convert a 9630T to high flow?

Seemed to me that the wheeled Deere tractors had more hydraulic flow than the Twin tracks in the 30 series. Also seems to me that if you have a pto you could not get the high flow hydraulics.

I think you would be limited on hydraulics for that drill, especially if using high rates of fertilizer and needing the high capacity fan.

The hydraulic swinging drawbar would be a necessity if you have many turns to make around wet spots, trees, irregular shaped fields, etc.

In my area that size of drill needs a chipped 600 hp tractor to move it.

My farm has had owned 9630T in the past and the hyd swinging drawbar is great, worth the money. You could get hi flow on all of the wheel tractors but none of the 2 tracks until 9Rs. The wheeled 9630 & 9530 had double reduction axles so they didn’t have a pto option. I had thought about an additional pto powered pump on the 9630t would be great, I don’t think there is any way to bolt a second pump on in the factory location.
