So you have had Harain ones on your John Deere? Can you tell me ore about those? I am looking to switch my 1177 H4 to those, used ones? Anything I should pay attention to when getting used ones? I've also heard that a final drive(s) must be a Heavy Duty ones?I have run Deere tracks on 9770 STS for 2 years, switched to Soucy tracks this fall on both machines. The Deere's took 4.5 hours to install but the Soucy's are as easy as bolting on a wheel. The Soucy's require alot less maintenance and ride better than the Deere's. I am able to run in 2wd where the Deere's wouldn't go with 4wd.
So that was the first generation John Deere tracks? Harain ones? I'm looking to get those used. How slower was the combine on those?Have messed with JD tracks on 9870 STS along Arkansas River bottom / sandy ground in central Kansas. They help with floatation, reduce rutting, but are a pain to remove and install.
It seems pretty evident that if you need tracks, the Claas Lexion is the more durable system. It also has the best suspension system which makes for a nicer / smooth ride.
I am in Europe now, and as far as I could find out, duals are not an option hereBojand, Why wouldn't you just put that money towards a newer combine and put duals on it?
Good question. I've bought it used ( the combine ) and looks like someone has been taking one of the tires off...repair or something, and damaged the beed. It isn't a tubeless, so has been chewing on inner tube. And the guy who's been repairing it again and over again, did some damage to it due to incompetence. Bottom line, I am in the area where good service is hard to find, and if can't do it myself, it won't be done right. And I don't have that kind of a tire machine, to do tire that size. I have had a spare wheel with tire, but that one has been going bad too, but that one is Russian, so,... )))...the tire is.Expensive as tracks?
Why so many flats?
