Yesterday we had a field day, where we had a 8120 with 12 row narrow geringhoff header. The 8120 is a major leap here as the dealer never inported the7010/8010 series and rather stuck with the Brazilian 2388/99. I must admit that the USA machine is far more better in quality and craftsmanship, and i instantly fell in love with the 8120. On the demo we did some butt kicking, Deere 9870, 9770, both with 12 rows, their was a claas lexion , with a 12 row as well, out perform them all. On the demo was 3 535 steigers, 2 335 magnums, a 310 magnum, a 250 magnum, a 195/180 and 165 pumas and a 140 maxxum, and a 4420 patriot with 120 boom, man Deere lost this Battle, my blood is red CASE IH red

just out of interest, how many guys their would run 12 row corn heads? here in oz, thier is only a few, but that is mainly cos that most corn in grown under irrigation on 40 inch rows. p.s, can't wait for the tri-nations. wallabies all the way!!

Sounds like a good time... its really hard to beat a steiger or the case sprayer... that's a neat boom to..im guessing it was the 60 90 120..... that's what id need down here...several spots theres no way 120 would unfold...
