So yesterday was the last day that our farm will ever see the 9600, turns out it was a '94 model and had 1700sep. hours...which is pretty low for any maximizer.

anyway, here's the pics of 'er all cleaned up when we we're charging the batteries so we could get it to the dealer.






Sad to see 'er go, but only until the STS gets delivered

thank you benny, i know it's not perfect, but i invest alot of time reading up on products to bring that shine out better and keep it longer, and alot of energy polishing. I'm doing a little writeup of basic and advanced ideas, tricks, and techniques i do to hopefully, help members here get a shine on their machines they can look at and just be speechless. Ag equipment is mostly powdercoated, so it's different than just detailing a car in your driveway.

Manitoba: we're going to an '01 9650STS

pretty much lol, each tractor spends a solid week in the shop/wash bay getting washed/polished/waxed and regular maintenence. I refuse to work on equipment thats dirty so i spend the first 2days getting dirt, stalks, etc out of the machines. During the summer we basically just have a chance to slow down and fix everything correctly for next spring/fall and get things neat and tidy. That way when november comes, i can be happy with just giving it a good power washing and leave it in the shed for 4 months.

Dragon: I'm starting our 9300-4WD in a couple of days so i'll make a little writeup for you guys who do it all by hand and for those who have buffers. You learn to be pretty efficient doing equipment after about your fifth time, first time i did our 4640 it took me about 4 days...after it looks good, keeping it looking good is the easy part. I also volunteer my services to the FFA auction our local school has since i was a member and i think it's a good program.

nar, we weren't the original owners and im not sure how the previous owner took care of it. I don't touch decals because i don't want to rip them, i'll usually just go over them with with a wet rag and follow with a dry rag.

Jacob, give me a couple of days or so to get all the spring stuff unhooked in the sheds and i'll post some of our 9300 after i get done with it next week. In the meantime, here's our 1982 Deere 4640 and graincart after it got all washed and cleaned. Soon after it was covered in dust and trash from being in the field.

we we're gonna keep the maximizer around for awhile longer, then my dad was like "these things are slowly becoming 7720's (meaning the trade-in value is slowly diminishing) and with the all-time high demand for used farm equipment, he decided it was time to see her go.

i can't really take all the responsibility for it being perfectly clean, we had a local auction co. clean it initially when it was in for some work, and from there i was left with a rediculously clean surface to start with.
