Re: Deere plant tours
Ive been on the CNH and Deere tours and I would have to say the CNH tour was better. Of course, I went with a dealer on that one and it was a special deal where a lot of dealers were there and they put us up in a hotel and CNH fed us prime rib the night before The next day they had a complete walk around of the combines and then a walk through tour so we might have gotten a better tour than normal. The down fall of the deere tour was it was a ride along. You have headsets that you can hear the tour guide with but I was at the back of the wagon and couldnt ask any questions. Also people up front would ask questions and we could here the guides response but we couldnt here the question. A walk through would have been much better. From what I remember they said you could take all the pictures you wanted and they would answer any question except 2. They wouldnt say how many combines leave the line each day and wouldnt say how much workers were paid. You might as well spend the whole day in Moline. We did the combine tour, planter tour which was pretty good and then went to the Pavillion which has some old equipment and neat stuff to look at.
