Talking to my neighbours during harvest this year whilst using their shed to weld one of the axles back onto my chaser and they said that their S670 was the worst Johny they had owned for failed bearings and hydraulic hoses and lost over 200 litres of hydraulic oil this year. They have owned John Deeres forever.

I will you some good news mate,instead of all doom and gloom. I don't no why some people own I'd if they are that bad!!!!!! My neighbours have 2x s680 and have been awesome. The capacity far out ways the 70s here in Australia in 5/6/7 ton/h wheat crops. They have been out for 3years now with very few problems. Front gauge tyres still seem to be a problem with not lasting and tailing chain seem to break a bit but still great machines
