I suppose by now you have gathered that.
Actually no, I hadn't.

The way I'm using it hate isn't all that strong, I hate getting an ice cream headache, but I still end up doing it about once a month.
No use for guns maybe sounds better, it's what I mean.

Interesting that an American would be more setback by the word hate than I think most Canadians would be.

Has a lot better electronics than the previous models. Don't know why but the diagnostic flow charts for hydraulics and electrics are easier to follow. Almost like Deere spent a little more time on this model than the last two.

It has been discussed and discussed that the 9000 and 9010 series were extremely reliable. It's a different age with different quality and workmanship. Can we really compare?
X2.

See my avatar
We have had our sieves out several times since adding the mav. No removal of the entire chopper only need to take the outside shrouds off to get it past.

I have pretty much stayed out of this after my replies with jcalder, and I will note that him & I have had a very civil friendly conversation via PM.

But this comment irks me, you have now attacked my character which is something I don't appreciate or put up with. You are basically insinuating that I am some sort of bully or "big guy" because of my picture. Please quote me showing where & how I bullied anyone on this forum.

So your an NRA member that takes offence to a picture of someone bearing a firearm, I think there is a word for that somewhere . . .

As a farmer, you learn quick: “You don’t get anything that you don’t work hard for”

Its a .454 Casull that can also shoot .410 shot shells, such a fun gun but expensive to shoot. Unfortunately it lives in my safe until my infrequent trips to the gun range.

Awesome, my bro has a Taurus set up that way but it only sports a 3" barrel making it quite the scatter gun, works good with slugs

While the explanation behind it is honourable there is no way of knowing the background.

I hate hunting, hate guns, while I don't care for the photo I also don't care it's there.
I would fall in the 80%.

A farmer with a gun? Yawn, pretty common.

Anyway, back to the original post. I think a 9770 IS the best combine Deere has built. The auction values speak for themselves. I do believe there was a 2011 9770 that sold on Auctiontime last week for $190,000 USD. It had 560-ish sep hours, 2wd, and had a straw spreader. So it had nothing special for options and really in theory should've sold closer to 200 with a chopper. By comparison S680s are selling regularly for 210-240k usd with similar hours.

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.
GoGetter life man!
Bother yourself with something that matters!

I could pose for that picture of Jason if I shaved my chin and got those reflective shades. Jason is better looking, but my S&W is better looking.
