The closed center Hydraulics used on the 20 series tractor was copied from aircraft hydraulic systems.
The reason our farm is green is that other than the drill and cart everything else is worth more today than we paid for it!!
Wow there's a lot of misinformation here!
A Waterloo Boy is about as close mechanically to a D as a D is to a 730.
Don Macmillan was a farmer, dealer and author from England. Harold Brock is the guy who worked for Ford and later Deere.

I bet it's just the Class 10 (perhaps an enhanced class 9 as well) being introduced. Either that or its the best kept secret Deere has ever pulled off! Deere notoriously does not suppress new product information very well. I asked my dealer but got nothing!

Fast-forward 40 years and it appears they were correct. I'm not doubting that some of the Deere sales folk had slanderous things to say about rotaries then but Deere, as a company, didn't at the time.
I always figured it was a patent thing. Case and New Holland held most of the patents on the rotary design. Pride prevented Deere from licensing them. Once those expired, then Deere brought out their rotaries.

But yes I'm sure horsepower was a factor. I remember the JD advertizing back in the day talking about how their conventionals could keep going long after the rotaries went to bed. Now of course with lots of horsepower and fuel to burn, rotaries run until the grain is toughed out.

Anyone wondering about a driverless option?

OR waiting till the end of harvest to check for losses?


I just heard a story and I cannot confirm the severity but I guess a guy here had a problem with his planters variable rate running for a few feet and stopping for a few feet, he noticed this 2 days ago after starting corn after he planted 2000 acres of canola.... by the way, the canola is up and this problem started on day 1

And it seems just a little odd that you wouldn't catch that on the monitor or not visibly see the VR motor and chain turning! Or maybe checked depth and couldn't find seed?

Some things boggle my mind.... and when the autonomous combine arrives I am pretty sure some could harvest a entire crop without noticing the sieve position was off and 20% of the crop was on the ground. I really think it could happen but I guess it probably is happening now.

God Bless America

Doubt it, my monitor will scream murder if that happens and a guy would see his chain by the vrd motor turning.
I made misstakes before but think that one is a bit excessive for even your monitor not to catch, but hey ive seen some weird stuff

I know right?
Rep even came down to smooth things out, in fact he stopped at my shop but I missed him.
I sure hope it's not as bad as it sounds

Few guys started planting canola here this year and it is bringing out the best of them

God Bless America

If it is a true Class X machine, it will be interesting to see what kind of head they put on it to feed that big of machine.
