Everyone always pisses and moans about the reliability and build quality of newer machines, then go and compare them to 9600's or 1680's, so on and so forth.

Yet they all seem to fail to realize these new ones have so much more power and hammer so much more grain through them than those did.
Sure they have more power, then why wouldn't they engineer them to match that power? Seems pretty simple.

The manufactures need some pushback from farmers to smarten up, they can't build a $450,000 and claim 30ac/hr and then its sits at the edge of the field with a service tech & a laptop. Maybe your willing to be complacent with this new generation of iron but i'm certainly not. Doesn't matter if your buying a brand new combine or a 5 year old one, most farms can't afford the new ones so they have to buy used, the current crop of used ones are going to be a nightmare, no warranty left and huge parts repair bills. It will affect everyone down the line.

Don't presume you know anything about me. Not sure how being a "big player" (as you describe) has anything todo with it, people ask questions on the forum and I share my experiences, no bragging or embellishing required, if you don't like it I'm sure your internet browser has an exit or close button.

The way you show a manufacturer your unhappy is tell them, otherwise they will keep making the same product. Fill out surveys, talk to product reps, etc.

I'm sure you have an opinion of me, just as I have formed one of you by reading your posts over the last couple years.
No I haven't formed an opinion, because I don't know you. People on the internet are very different in person. I have no hard feelings towards you, and have no intention of making enemies. That's why I use my real name and location on here, to be as genuine as possible. You seem bound and determined to attack my statements rather than having a discussion. If I met you in person I would shake your hand and have a friendly conversation.

What an excellent answer Jason!
Except...
I can give you about ten members from here who I've actually face to face met, several times in some cases, and I'm pretty sure they'd tell you what you see here is what you get with me.
I don't think I'm capable of faking an identity, too much like work!

Jason:

You or whoever it is in your avatar with a gun in hand has bothered me from when I first posted on the site.


I am not sure why this is used, if it is a macho thing, it does not lead to any credibility to your posts.
For me it detracts with anything you say here.

Hmm, which quote should I believe?
From our experience the maintenance on the STS's is far more expensive than the 9x00 and 9x10 series machines. But then again I have heard others say they spend less on the STS. Most around here are finding higher repair bills on their STS's.

It's my picture in the avatar, it was a fun picture that was taken for Movember (a charity where you grow a mustache to raise money). And I'm a proud hunter & gun owner. It's not intended to be threatening.

Don't have any proud advice for ya on concaves but when you say chopper parts I really recommend a redicop mav for a chopper upgrade especially if you cut beans

X2 they are an excellent chopper. They do a much better job in chopping and spreading and the price of the hammers and being able to flip them compared to the Deere's will pay for the chopper in a few years. The mav chopper and posi feed roller were both updates we had ordered even before the combine was in the yard. Both are money well spent.

I would guess about 10% would like it, 10% hate it and about 80% don't care.

While the explanation behind it is honourable there is no way of knowing the background.

I hate hunting, hate guns, while I don't care for the photo I also don't care it's there.

Only fit one if you are happy with not being able to get your chaffer and sieve out without unbolting the entire chopper:eek:

I don't like it, but we live in a free country with free speech.

The explanation behind the picture makes it less aggressive.

I hate hunting and guns, but to each his own, as long as it is not affecting other people.

Don:


For you and those watching, I am a proud member of
the NRA, and I do own a number of guns.
I don't hate anything, that is a very strong word.


I do not like those that like to play big guy. It really
turns me off.


I suppose by now you have gathered that.
