what I heard tonight disturbs me!!! Case IH needs to hear we don't like funky model numbers like mxu xyz or what ever. It needs to be clean make sense. like I have a 88 or a 77 or a 66 or a 70 or 80 something smooth that runs together.. this is not set in stone, what do you guys think ? if you could number them what would it be 3 little ones 3 big ones A B C H M ? 615 715 815 915 ? 1420 1440 1460 1470 1480? nothing hard about it how about these? 5005 6005 7005? 7010 8010 9010?

What's the 5005 and 6005 represent? 2588 & 2788?

How about this?

5010 (2577) 6010 (2588) 7010 (7010) 8010 (8010) 9010 (9010) but put AFX in front of all of them? It's pretty simple and easy to recognize
Class V, VI, VII, VIII, IX in order

Far too logical. It'll never work.
But.... for a Deere guy... pretty good!

3166- new model, 24" rotor, $180K
3177 - new cab, old guts, old feeder hookup, 77 size machine
3188 - new cab, old guts, old feeder hookup, 88 size machine
3199 - new model - new cab, old guts with ST rotor, 8010 feeder hookup, hp bump and beefier belt rotor drive

7710 - tweaked 7010
8810 - tweaked 8010
9910 - new model- 16 row ready, tracks standard

Hey sounds logical to me but what do I know...

The 3166 of course will never happen, too sad, Deere did and they are selling like hot cakes- lots of 6 row/20ft 1000-2500 acre well-to-do farms around here yet.

I could also see them elimitating the 77 size machine alltogether too, just so there are fewer models.

There's been 2399s in South America for several years.

Hey good topic Tony, this is fun to think about!

I'm sure they will figure out some way to make it complicated

Its like Don said far to logical. Big companies need to keep things confusing. They don't do simple very well.

Just what they need a cheaper model of these combines

Also i doubt they need to build anything smaller than a class 6.

U guys are getting me worried with all of these numbers

Do what alex ryan said...all with extended wear packages and built to last a long time.

how freaking hard is that to get????????

Why not use number designations that follow a pattern at least throughout the entire series. I don't understand the 5005, 6005, or 6605, and 5506's and then jump up to the 7010, 8010's and so on. I think Alex has got the right idea. Why not give the smaller machines model designations to match the bigger AFX machines.

Tony glad you brought this up. I will try to contact sombody from Case to let them no my feelings. And I know a lot of the brass reads this web page so brass listen up. It took you several years to finally regain the solid reputation that the 1400s-2500s have had and now the 7010s-8010s have finally got! Please keep it simple 5010 or20s thru 9010 or 20s. I have an idea why not listen to us guys that actually right the checks for these 1/4 to 1/2 million dollar machines once! I have owned about 16 of these with 8010s now and will be updating to 90series I hope if I can at least keep the numbers straight.

Relax C, I'm sure the CNH marketing department has a plan. In fact, I bet the people that know what the plan is are laughing at all the strange numbering schemes that people have speculated about on this forum.

Besides getting information about what farmers think, maybe the other reason the brass at the big companies read this forum, to get a good laugh at all our hair brained ideas.

Now you now where I'm goin' .....next models after those

5388, 6388, 7388, 8388, 9388 and next series 5588, 6588, 7588, 8588, 9588 don't worry about those repeated #'s those were IH tractors these are Case IH combines

These numbers should get us down the road quite a few years before they have to decide again. What ya'll think?
I hope the big guy in the company sees my post , likes the #'s and attaches one of those 50 series to my new 1020 header as a gift when it leaves the factory


Overseas models could end in 99.Heck now, this would be to easy and makes to much sense, besides I'm just a dumb farmer

Make sure you check out the two previous posts.
