Sure they have more power, then why wouldn't they engineer them to match that power? Seems pretty simple.

The manufactures need some pushback from farmers to smarten up, they can't build a $450,000 and claim 30ac/hr and then its sits at the edge of the field with a service tech & a laptop. Maybe your willing to be complacent with this new generation of iron but i'm certainly not. Doesn't matter if your buying a brand new combine or a 5 year old one, most farms can't afford the new ones so they have to buy used, the current crop of used ones are going to be a nightmare, no warranty left and huge parts repair bills. It will affect everyone down the line.

Hmm, which quote should I believe?

Don't presume you know anything about me. Not sure how being a "big player" (as you describe) has anything todo with it, people ask questions on the forum and I share my experiences, no bragging or embellishing required, if you don't like it I'm sure your internet browser has an exit or close button.

The way you show a manufacturer your unhappy is tell them, otherwise they will keep making the same product. Fill out surveys, talk to product reps, etc.

No I haven't formed an opinion, because I don't know you. People on the internet are very different in person. I have no hard feelings towards you, and have no intention of making enemies. That's why I use my real name and location on here, to be as genuine as possible. You seem bound and determined to attack my statements rather than having a discussion. If I met you in person I would shake your hand and have a friendly conversation.

What an excellent answer Jason!
Except...
I can give you about ten members from here who I've actually face to face met, several times in some cases, and I'm pretty sure they'd tell you what you see here is what you get with me.
I don't think I'm capable of faking an identity, too much like work!

You or whoever it is in your avatar with a gun in hand has bothered me from when I first posted on the site.


I am not sure why this is used, if it is a macho thing, it does not lead to any credibility to your posts.
For me it detracts with anything you say here.

From our experience the maintenance on the STS's is far more expensive than the 9x00 and 9x10 series machines. But then again I have heard others say they spend less on the STS. Most around here are finding higher repair bills on their STS's.

It's my picture in the avatar, it was a fun picture that was taken for Movember (a charity where you grow a mustache to raise money). And I'm a proud hunter & gun owner. It's not intended to be threatening.

We've had good luck with Redekop chopper hammers in our factory choppers on our 9750 and 9760.
