John Deere T670???

How is the T670 performing compared to STS models...in small grains/canola? We run JD walkers and STS and I'm having a hard time being happy with these machines. JD walkers don't have enough capacity and the STS not very impressive in small grains and tough conditions. We also run a wide rotation of Canola, Wheat, Oats, Soybeans, Corn and need machines able to handle all these crops....would a T670 handle Corn and beans???

I was at a demo of a T670. I wasn't too impressed with it. The farmer had a 9650sts and it was harvesting more per hour than the T670. This was in barley. Farmer wasn't too impressed either.

Hard to believe that the T670 couldnt outperform the 9650,i am wondering if it was set up right,it should be able to perform like a 9770.But anyway,Deere northamerica is promoting those combines as small grain machines,but farmers all over europe run them as well in corn,beans,peas etc. with great success.

would you know the solution??
C670 the new CTS

I can't understand whi john deere stops cts in USA and whi stops to develop one CTS model more big like claas lexion 600

We have near us some sts but in only one year in my zone were purchased 5 CTS, only 1 Lexion and only one STS... whi????
Because CTS is the most powerful and flexible combine that john deere ever built.

T series during test in small grains and corn works good but another planet away from CTS in terms of quality and production for hour

We have CTS and we change only for other CTS

my buddy that sells green paint said the t670 was comparable to a 9760sts, not quite as good as a 9770. we demoed a t670 in 08 against our 9600s. we just had the combine, no salesman with it so i dont think we had it set up as good as it could have been cuz it was not out preforming our machines at all

Deere will drop the production of the CTS in Europe as well in the near future...unfortunetely.

My boss traded his 9650 on one after I left for school, don't know what went wrong, but he had a New Holland in there shortly after the T670 arrived and there's some kind of deal being worked out to get rid of the T670 from what I heard. Don't know what went wrong.

I tell him to quit whining and open a Lexion dealership.

i hope that deere change idea about CTS.
pay attention what happens in my zone this year:

2 new holland CR changed for 2 C670
1 lexion 470 changed for lexion 580
1 lexion 480 changed for lexion 580
1 claas tucano changed for lexion 570
1 claas mega in phase of changing for 9870 CTs (C670 is the restyle of 9780CTS have only 40 hp engine power rest is the same)
2 old walker JD combines changed for 2 9780 CTS
1 2266 JD combine changed for 9780 CTS
1 case ih axial flow changed for .. another 9780 CTS
1 new C670 arrives next season
1 deuz fahr changed for STS

you can see that john deere and class are hybrid combines, whi all change traditional combines for hybrid sistems?
this year we had a lot of soybead, i never see combining soybead at 2.00 am during a foggy night without problems, CTS DO THIS WITHOUT LOSS. STS DOESN'T DO THIS, lexion do this but must stop work before CTS.

brother had 09 t670 pushed as hard as could It was impossible to keep side by side of my 07 9760 in wheat conola was a little closer.
pros of t670
easily bale straw
push button hopper fold
cons of t670
small dia unloading augar
very hard to set for sample
impossible to unplug (broke wrench supplied)

We traded both machines off to a set of 09 9870s very happy with pref.

  • Running a T670 this year in winter wheat, barley and alfalfa seed. Very please so far with its performance. Always had trouble with the old walker machines in barley with walker loss but didn't have any trouble with the T, the extra sep. cylinder seems to do the trick. It's also working very well in our a. seed, its got a cleaner sample than our 9610 and doesn't suffer from the tough conditions that our 9660 sts does in the a. seed. I was worried about plugging it in the hay seed but so far we haven't had to use the slug wrench and I hope I never do!
