we use to own a 7720 back when they first came out. i got out of grain farming for several years. a few years ago i started back up. i only have about 500 acres. i have been using an F3 for the last few years. i was able to purcahse a 7720 Titan II this year. can someone that has experince with a 7720 give me a few pointers or advice you think i should know about it? also is there any weak spots that you would recomend ordedring spare parts for and having on the shelf?

thanks

Re: 7720 questions

thanks for the advice.... we get the machine Tuesday. i will check out all the stuff you mentioned. there is a pretty good chance it has the slow down kit on it. it has an extra pulley or to near the chopper. but i will find out for sure when it gets here. i

m a little nervous getting an older used machine a fews weeks before its time to start using it. so hopefully it is in pretty good shape. i looked it over pretty well but as you know I'm sure i missed alot or stuff.

we have a 922 head for it and a 643 corn head with plastic snouts. what kind a of ground speed can i expect in soybeans? I'm use to about 2.5 with a 13 foot head from the old F3 so I'm sure this will be a large improvement. my neighbor has a 9500 that i run alot.will this machine keep up with that?

thanks again for all your info.

Re: 7720 questions

the 7720 arrived yesterday. i found a few things wrong that i missed when i looked it over but nothing to costly. the only thing I'm not very happy with is the steering. it is extremely hard to steer. you almost have to have the engine running wide open in order to steer or it feels like an old car with no power-steering. even wide open it still takes some effort. could this be the steering valve or pump?

also after i cleaned it up i found the main shaft for the bin unloading drive has been welded recently. is this a common way to fix that shaft? i hope it makes it through the season!!!
