The capacity that I picked up with my crops is very little. Like less than a half mile per hour. (grasseed is fickle to say the least)
however I am pleased with the job the 50 series does. It does very good in doing separation, but is not fast at it,
(especially for the price increase there was for them compared to our 9500) is my big gripe, its not like an upgrade in capacity that you would get with an STS, the hours on the 50's is reaching over 2000hrs now and repairs arent terrible this year, one of the lighter repair agendas for us in about 2-3yrs.
POV from a 50 series
owner< I think the new T series is the machine all we speedy non-STS guys have been wanting.
Lol its funny to see how much NA farmers care about simplicity of machines. Come on, the T-series has 3 beaters, thats not a big difference...and it has some real advatages. And the WTS (W-series) is still a normal normal walker machine...
What's wrong with caring about the simplicity of a machine? Some people don't mind getting their hands dirty and working on their own equipment. To these people the more simple a machine is to work on, the better.
Im not here to nit pick, but to clarify, I meant T670, ( its deeres version of the NH CX but better) not fully realeased to the NA market, which is built in europe, not the WTS, as those too were built in europe, I have a neighbor that bought the wts' and is not all that impressed. Basically a straw beater of the walkers, yes more moving parts and things break. IMO.
hey 9660walker.....i just took delivery of a new 2 me 9660wts and have it @ dealer getting inspected. at 700 sep. hrs rub bars were shot , didn't have chrome ones for some reason. european straw chopper knives near wore out and they r big $ just a cpl of things to check.
I doubt they are the original bars at 1100 sep hours.
Ive heard of cylinder bulkhead problems with the new T series up in Canada. They need Sunny cylinders to keep them together. I dont think the new design is necessary.
