What are the downsides of Gleaners?
I'm considering an R65, it's a customers unit with about 1400 sep hours and 1900 engine hours. Clean, well-maintained and it's an "okay" deal compared to comparable units on the market. What's driving me towards this particular combine is knowing its history and the fact that the customer is only dealing on another Gleaner to gain more capacity, duals and 4WD. My question is what motivates some long-term Gleaner owners to switch brands? In SW Ontario, you seldom see another colour on a Gleaner lot but I've noticed some late model gleaners on the other colours lots. I harvest corn, winter wheat and soys; - about 400 acres each, give or take each year. I'd particularly like to hear the reasoning from those who have owned 2 or 3 gleaners and have switched brands. FYI - dealer support is excellent in my area.
