Oh come on!!!! How do I know you weren't thinking US dollars, which puts you over, and if this was the Price Is Right, you know what that means!!!!! lol

Same bidder bought the 9600 too, according to the little clip on Steffes website.

If they went to the field you would think there is a lot better value for your money in the market right now for what was paid. Once some hours are put on the value will greatly decrease just like buying new.

From a durability standpoint those were the best Deere combines ever made. In my opinion of course....

If you're talking about the 8820, I beg to differ. I think we view it through rose-colored glasses. The 7720 wasn't that much different from the 8820. I remember watching my dad fix holes in the clean grain elevator and various other wear surfaces that wore clear through the thin tin. My dad also wore out the pickup after just a few years and had to rebuild it. At least a couple of bearings failed every year, and belts broke, and it was quite a difficult job to replace them, given how many belts and chains were on that machine. I remember the cylinder taking pretty serious rock damage, requiring a rebuild. If I recall the 7720 cylinder was made of just stamped steel spider assemblies. Feederhouse tin wore through and the chains certainly didn't last longer than they do today.

In my mind that combine ran still ran forever, but if I'm honest, I recall that it was wore out after 7 or 8 seasons. Our current machines seem to wear out fast also, but they each do 2-3 times the work that the 7720 did. They are made of sheet steel that's at least double or triple the thickness of the 7720. I also haven't lost any bearings in several years now; probably about due for one to fail. Haven't had any major breakdowns in several years either, which used to be at least a once a season thing on the 7720. There's no question my current machines are more reliable than our 7720 ever was.

Perhaps the 8820 was a completely better machine.

I looked at the pics of those combines. They looked good for their age but was surprised how poor they looked. Some rust and looked as maybe the mice got to the wiring harness.

I've said this before, I'll chime in again. We ran 3 titans up until partway through harvest 2008 all close to or above 6000 engine hours. Only had one major mechanical failure (hydro) on one. Two I believe had the original AC pumps. Alternator issues until I started using Denso ones. So overall to me the top or close to the top for reliability of that era. I know some will argue, not gonna change my mind.
Downfalls would be running an 8820 in swathed crop in my mind. The draper header turned them into a better combine capacity wise. Wind was the real issue. Really a 9600 wasn't much capacity improvement in our country.

I've had a lot less maintenance with close to double the productivity with my STS'. STS a lot easier to work on. Wear items last way longer. I may eat my words but I'd rather run a 60/70 sts (close to 4000 eng. hrs. on my 9770)to 6000 hours than a 20 series.

About $85000.00 Can. new. If a farmer bought this to use, they overpaid.
