Hi, I live in Calgary, alberta Canada. My brother needs a combine back home in pakistan. I have no idea at all about these machines, so it will be great help if some one could guide me as to which model and accessories I should buy and the source to buy from.
He harvests about 2000 acres of wheat crop each year and about 1000 of rice, so he will need some machine suitable for this purpose. Presently he hires machines and drivers to do the job. Most of the machines there are from NEWHOLLAND that come from United Kingdom. I think here most of the machines available are John Deere. About spending, he has a budget of from 15000 to 30000 USD. Labor is cheap ther, so old reliable models with availability of spares are preffered .

Any guidance will be highly appreciated.

Re: HELP NEEDED FOR BUYING COMBINE

Hi, thanks for good information. The main difference there in Pakistan and here in Norht America is the climate, we harvest there in April, when temperaute goes to about 50 degree. I was thinking to buy some cheap one as advised 6600. Shipping is about $3500 and there is no tax on agri equipment.
Could any one please guide, main difference in 6600, 7720 and 8820. We do not need much features as I mentioned earlier labor is cheap so we will need some thing to do the basic harvesting.

Re: HELP NEEDED FOR BUYING COMBINE

Hi, thanks for all the feedback I have. There are no dealers for combines there in Pakistan for John Deere or MF. MF is there but only for tractors. So if any problem with the combine I will have to send the parts from here. At present there is some expertise and parts available for New Holland combines as these are the combines mostly present there coming from united kingdom (old models). If any body in alberta has combine to sell in good conditon like 7720 even 6620 or any other, please get in touch with me.

Re: HELP NEEDED FOR BUYING COMBINE

There will be no parts suppot there Pakistan. The reason I want to send from Canada is that I am living permanently here so in case they need parts I will have to send them from here. Combines there in Pakistan are started being used recently and still people use old models. Most of the people bring them from united kingdom and then sell them in almost double price because there is no established market there.
