Re: 7088 vs 9860?

between the two dealers close to me the 7088 was the most popular for new combines through local titan dealer, 8120 most popular through another dealer. Seems like farmers that wanted a class 7 they stayed with the "old" style. But the 8120 was the combine of choice for the "new" style. I would feel comfortable putting a 7088 against a 9860, especially if you put a 35ft draper on it. It may be shorter on power, but you have a similar capacity machine.

dont be to quick to hate the new iveco. The 10.3 has a sh** load of power. But i do agree a M11 plus would have been pretty sweet.

i would feel safer with a 7120 before the deer the iveco engine has been good to me on three 7010 s have a 7120 new in shed for next year the iveco over in italy is like the cummins or cat over here. if you get a deer make shure that you buy a supply of belts since the case has 3 and the deer has 13.

i dont know for sure but I would think iveco may sell more engines than cat or cummins world wide. all trucks in europe asia and south america are iveco or mercedes powered and alot of VW's

Dont be too quick to judge the Iveco. I personally have owned over 20 of them and not had a engine failure yet. But, I did have a 09 9770 Deere create its own hole in the side of the block, this fall at 450 hours though. It was the 5th one in our area (with this engine) to fail.

Isnt there is a specific reason the ivecos are going up? Where did those supposed 6-12 engines break at? What year were the ivecos?

Answer those before judging the iveco. If they are 05 or before there must be a reason for it.

I ran my 9060 with cummins power one year and that was enough, traded back for the iveco like I had before, way better on power and fuel.

Re: 7088 vs 9860?

Actually we had a local customer that runs all green machine with the bullet rotors.
When he was finishing his rice he borrowed a couple of 7088's to run while he put tracks on the big green machines.
After all the prolonged wet season the fields were horrible.The bigger machines would not go ,red or green without tracks.
But the 7088's could cut ,but were not moving real fast with the 35' macdons on.
Just something we saw locally.The only machine he had to pull a grain cart was a big JD 4WD.

Reminds me of Homer Simpson ordering a radio on the phone:
Please, please, please do you have one?
Yeah, gotta couple.
The shot stretches out to show a warehouse full of radios.
