I know this is somewhat of a slanted question, but are there any figures that anyone knows of that would state Model Popularity ( In General ) ? More of one model produced than another ? that sort of info....
In the 70's/80's it was MF with a big presence here.
It's scattered all over now, it seems one year company X will sell a bunch of new units, next year company Y.
Throw in some dealership loyalty (not necessarily the same thing as brand loyalty),
some personnel loyalty, I can't say any one has a commanding lead in the immediate area here now.
In other words a very healthy situation.
In my Area we only have around 3 Headers that I know of..Wait make that 5.
Theres the 8820 of the Jones's.
The 7720 Of the Smiths
The Titan II of the Pettys.
And the 9600 and 9500 of the Fletchers.
So yeah, 5 Combines, All Deere's. And thats in our entire area, my area is mountainish Barley and Corn Country though, we have a fair bit of Dairy, and alot of cattle...and thats the story of my area..XD
Down through the eastern australian wheat belt i rarely see anything else than 50's and 60's series headers. Case has a fair few headers running and there is the odd new holland. Deere is definitly dominant down through the wheat belt.
lol I hate chickpea's, I havn't even harvested them yet, But when uncle darb said they tend to spontainiously combust I decided to steer clear of them, I'll run the chaser whenever I'm around and they're being harvested.
Never used one, Also There are a couple of New Holland CR's floating around near oakey, Dalby and Toowoomba in the Downs (I think Dalbys in the Downs)
Ive read somewhere, that if you take a point of origin in any random person on this planet, and draw lines from said person to everyone he knows, and then draw lines from everyone they know, and so on and so on, you would end up with 1/4 of the worlds total population on the tree!
