We were looking at a 70 series this fall, when we started pricing they were available for April delivery and within a week they were out to the end of July. It was at that point that we bought a 07 9660 with 82 sep hours on it.
We went Deerebine hunting 1st week of Nov. and got the story tone dealer even thinks? used Deere values will go up as a result and is factoring that into the price.
I dunno if I agree with that.
Greed only works up to a certain point.At some point even a Deere buyer
will look elsewhere to supply a machine.A green machine could be worth more on a trade at a competitor's dealer too.Money talks and BS walks as they say.
I see opportunities for Big Green's competitors to fill a void in the market.Agco or CNH stock anyone?
Yeah the Can. $ worth more now so I suppose that's causing a few more equip. sales up there.It's also made the potash coming from Canadian mines more expensive for us to buy.For every action there's a reaction.
Okay! you have daddies permission now. ha. We have heard from one dealer in our area that they may not be able to get a 9630 for us for next fall, another dealer has two on order for spring, neither of which have been sold.
sloans has quitea few coming in or already in stock....they have 1 9630T and 3 9530 artic's i believe, i'd have to double check the farm week ad for sure.
I bet the 9530 will outdo a 9630 in the nebraska test again as well....you can ahve all the horsepower you want....but functionality over form IMO. With the 20 series anyway, they put too much motor on too light of a tractor, which is why the 9520 was able to outpull a 9620.
My dad went out to see his old school buddy in Dysart, IA and his neighbor had a "C" series cornhead and he said the field was a disaster, the choppers made the material too fine and there were huge piles of leaves/husks/stalks along the fence row and they were trying to burn it off to till it.
besides the swing out panels, and lower angle....is there any difference between a "c" series non chopper, and a 693? If there's not, looks like a bish adapter is all we need to convert our 693 to the new series, and save $$$, lol.
Ebert- Look at the tractors nebraska tests again. You need to compare apples to apples, look at the same gear and the same rpm, ballasted and unballasted the 9620 outperforms the 9520 every time. YOU really need to research things before you let the fingers start typing.
If you take into account the snapping rolls/deck plate area is longer than a 90 series, and if the rolls are larger in diamater, then 22% is nothing, I believe this is also done to reduce trash intake.
Quote:i got that info off of tractordata.com, i assumed it was correct since the 9300/9400 figures are correct....i dont have adobe reader installed so i cant view actual nebraska test results at home.
I see your right, sure makes you wonder about the credibility of tractordata. They used 7th gear 2100. Max, across the board power 9620 1800,12th, ballasted, 472.40 the 9520 1800,12th,ballasted 414.08 So tractordata took max at 1800,12th,unballasted 411.97 giving 2.11 hp spread between ballasted and unballasted on the 9520 big deal.
By the way the 9620 is not the most powerful tractor ever tested at Nebraska.
A Cat MT875B 1800, 10th, ballasted (56,000!) 506.53.
STX 450, 413.58
STX 450 quadtrac 385.33
The STX's were tested over 7 years ago so don't whine to me, CNH is your guy!
About 3.7% of your power evaporates with 2 tracks
About 6.9% with quadtrak.Yea, yea I know, cement track.
Cat guys Is the MT875B still the BIG cat?
Will the 9630 break 500 drawbar? Hmm. Does the term splitting hairs ring a bell?
Ebert, get yourself Adobe Reader, I think you'll like it.
Hope I didn't bore too many, sorry.
Deere is out of Large equipment because they are sending a large percentage of it overseas leaving the North American dealers with a shortage. Large orders were placed by some countries and they will be filled. North American dealers will be shorted. Could be the US dollar value causing mother Deere to go after some of the higher valued monies?
