I am buying a new combine for next year. It will probably be a 7120. I have no experience in buying red stuff. Does anyone have any experience they will share (either via reply or PM) on what percent of list I should expect to pay? I'd sure hate to start at 75% and find I should have started at 70%.

In past years December was a good month to order a combine.
Case often offered some attractive combine financing at low interest.

This year has been terrible to deal on farm equipment. The dealers cant even get new stuff so you have no leverage.

Try and price it at several dealers and see where their each at.
Try and find a dealer that has one in stock. They can only keep it so long and then case will make them pay for it. In the past I have got some good deals when the dealer ran out of time and did not want to pay the juice.

This year some guy will probably come in and pay list price for it .... before you even get over to look at it.

I've priced a 7120 and a 9770 . Both with 30ft. grain platforms and 12row cornheads. The Deere was 16% discount and the Case was 19% discount off of list. Freight and Set-up on Deere was 14,200 and 7,000 on Case.

U should really look at a draper if you want to get the most for your money

also i heard from a higher up that out on a harvest run that the 7088 was outperforming they 7120 so maybe see whats the price difference and maybe stick with the older and so far more reliable design..

Just a thought...

I'm with you on this one casefarmer I'd much rather take 7088 over the 7120 any day. I am not sold on how great the 10's and 20's design is and the five years to get the bugs out has me Leary too. Combines shouldn't need updates for 3-4 years to make them a usable product IMHO! The 7088's have been in 2388 and 7010 clothing around here for at least 2 years. The farmers that have seen them run say even with the 12 row heads it is unreal the difference the the changes make compared to their new 2388 and 2588s.
