Re: how many axial flows have been sold?

Not sure about Case but this year John Deere is celebrating its 500,000th combine. I am guessing Case is considerably less beings John Deere has held a majority of the market share for many years and that is counting all JD combines made.

Re: how many axial flows have been sold?

While yeah, but the question is Axialflows so you can only count STS's if you are comparing.
Here's my bet:
There has been more Axialflows sold then NH TR/CR, JD STS and WFE/MF axial/rotary combines put together!
There, that otta stir something up.

Re: how many axial flows have been sold?

I downloaded this pic on June 14, 1999 that shows the 100,000th AF. As for all red combines before the AF, don't know. Lots....

Re: how many axial flows have been sold?

Wonder if they put that machine on the market or put it on display at the factory? In '99, were they in Grand Island yet? If so, didn't see it when I took a tour last September.

I doubt that... and i bet you see alot more older axial flows around than the old walkers now and in the future..

Re: how many axial flows have been sold?

I thought it would already!

Usually when a rash statement like that is made someone will do the research to (usually) disprove it.
Unlike the flat out SWAG I took.
SWAG? Scientific Wild Assed Guess.

Hope someone will run with this.

Last I heard they were over 140,000 (figure mentioned at plant tour in Feb 2010) so the 150,000th won't be far away.

Do we count all those New Holland combines that are painted red as Axial flows? Also if only STS's count then really only AFX combines should count.
