John Deere rice combine

Hi, I am interested in a combine for harvesting rice, I was looking for a 7720 John Deere; I am interested on a combine for harvesting rice, that may offer me some benefits like the John Deere 1175, I am not interested in the new combine John Deere 1175, because in my country is very expensive; I am looking for a used John Deere combine (posibly the John Deere 7720 setuped for rice), that can achieve similar results. Do you recommend me for harvesting rice the John Deere 7720 combine? What other model of John Deere (for rice harvesting) you recommend me?

The 7720 is a great old model for Rice.
20ft front
4wd
Peg drum and Concave

And away you go
Simple,reliable
Unstoppable in mud
Will eat lodged crop like no tomorrow

Depending on your acres, the 8820 is the same great rice machine but much more capacity.

Thank you for your answer,

Some people have told me that the John Deere 7720 is an excellent machine, but it is very difficult to find its spare parts, some of them recommended me the John Deere 9500; How much it might cost?

Rice is very hard on a combine...very abrasive. Also the drivelines take a lot of wear in that type of ground. I would venture to say most 7720 Rice specials are worn out. Converting a nice standard version to a rice machine would be difficult & costly. There are extra supports, etc welded into the frame for adjusting spike tooth clearance. You would have to cut these out of a donor junker and weld them in. And then swap over all the special parts.

Having said all that, I've never harvested rice, I have no idea how a standard cylinder machine would work. I do think the 7720 T2 was one of the best conventional combines made, as far as just working with minimal fuss.

What other John Deere model do you recommend me for rice harvesting, what do you think about john deere 9500?

Do you know someone that may give me support?

Thank you


I moved this all over from the other post. Sorry, The sole knowledge I have on this is that I had to go the "other way"...and how beat up that combine was. 2500 hours (supposedly) and all the grain pans & augers were worn out, the driveline coupler splines shot, etc. Ran great after I got it rebuilt though!

I've never been a fan of the 9500 series, because they are harder to get set right in corn/beans. Other than that, they are a fine and very popular combine--many many still running. Also much nicer cab! I'd avoid the 89-90 models. I will say you can but a good 9500 for about the same money as a good 7720 T2 in my area....which may or may not tell you something? No idea how they perform in Rice.
