John 'Dear' parts

Various parts for a CTS2, in AUD:

Feederhouse floor sheet - AH159703 - $2,013.31
Steering attenuator - AR75693 - $654.61 (whatever it is)
Steering orbital - AH142441 - $2,623.75 (seal kit $118.44)
Tyne module universal shaft - AH136599 - $1,408.80 (uni crosses not listed separate)
Tyne module splined drive hub - AH144617 - $755.71

Does anybody actually buy things like this?

I was pretty annoyed at having to pay $900 for an unloading auger belt engage cylinder a couple of years ago, but there is no way I will come at $2000 for a feederhouse floor.

Anybody have any other examples of outrageous pricing?

Anybody in the USA care to quote prices of the exact same parts as a comparison?

Square box........
Round pizza.......

That's the price of running older equipment. I do what I can to avoid outrageous parts pricing through Google, used parts, aftermarket and self manufacturing. I find service literature to be very valuable, things like your steering attenuator may not be the actual problem or be serviceable.

You have to remember the price difference between what you're running and new, you can put allot of parts into it for even a fraction of that. It's all part of the whole equation.

An important note, I almost always price new as it gives me a baseline to compare to (also sometimes new is surprisingly reasonable).

Why is there never time and money to do it correctly but there's always plenty to do it again

The feeder house floor AH159703 in the US.
Deere $915.51
A&I aftermarket $675
Prices are a little more reasonable in the USA.

Wow! What makes a Deere feeder floor so expensive?

A heritage 80-88 floor is only about 250$ aftermarket


Don't feel bad, I had to patch one together on a flagship about 2 weeks ago, 8230 with low hours, wore clean through

God Bless America

Some one at Deere has a sense of humor. I'm not sure who enters the prices into the computer system pertaining to parts, but sometimes you have to wonder. Bubble up auger in the hopper of the 8820 T2, the gearbox that drives the auger, AH129277 is just a few pennies shy of $2500. !!! So I price out the parts I need for it and end up pricing the two halves of the housing also. Whole gearbox, but in individual parts,....$897.22............. Everything except the 3 bolts that hold it together.

That is what happens when you run newer equipment with higher hours like 1400. The money is all put into electronic gadgetry in them and machine longevity is sacrificed. Smart move on their part because they got you if you are in need of parts, or a new machine. Today's big combines handle 3-4 times the material that say an 8820 did years ago, so seeing a combine in use at 5000 hrs is extinct. Metal is expensive and trying to keep the weight down of these bigger machines comes at a cost to you the farmer. Feeder house floors and cones etc you read on the forums here, are normal wear components these days. If a 860 MF in the 80's or an 8820 wore a feeder floor out in 2 seasons in the 80's there wouldn't have been a million of them sold. Back then there were many more farms so many more opportunity to sell combines. 1984 a 860 MF could be bought at a local dealership for $52,000 brand new loaded with everything available in the day. Canola was the same price as today roughly and fuel was at a fraction of todays cost lol. Land could be bought here for next to nothing back then compared to today. Everybody just needed enough land to keep themselves busy with one or 2 combines of the era.

It's just leaking, so I've gone with a seal kit. Just thought I would look up the price of a new one, and if it was a few hundred dollars I would completely replace. I got a shock......

Yes, I'm going to weld it up. Just thought I would price a new one in case it was cheap.
