With just 54 weeks to the next decade let’s have a poll!
Which combine (header in Oz) manufacturer do you think is most likely to have a significantly new model out by Jan 1st, 2020?
Multiple votes are allowed.
Listed alphabetically.

Interestingly, if nothing happens in the next 54 weeks Agco votes win, hence the inclusion of Agco. Since we’re not sure what they will call their new machine but it is looking like Fendt. I guess Gleaner would also fly under Agco.
Also, could get into a “what does significant mean” discussion.
No question Agco makes that cut.

The new Fendt definitely will put pressure the other manufactures. With the current price of new machines you wander how big the market will be for new combines going forward.

I don't think it will upset the poll in any way!! lol


I don't see a lot of changes in the next year, maybe some tweaks here or there, but nothing too major. I voted for Agco with the Fendt?? as it seems to be the only thing with any real light being shed on it. Will it take off? I have my doubts. Not because of the machine itself, but the marketing of it.

Sprayer - $600,000
Combine - $700,000

Farming - Priceless

Sorry to tell you, but pretty sure you can spend $700,000 on a combine now !!


Maybe DOT should be on the list. Suppose to be in the field seeding this spring, should be a combine soon !

Lol, yes you are likely correct!!
Come to think of it, JD track is in that $750k range, Case not far behind I’m sure.

Both Deere and CIH came out with new models recently, probability for something new is a bit less, rather pointless to put out new machines for only 1-2 years if they were close with a prototype?


AGCO more of a certain deal, as the Ideal is already in progress and known about.


Claas somewhat up in the air, been a bit since a new model # but who knows...


NH big things seem to come around 1 year before CIH does a big release, unless it only involves the threshing system.


Just my busted crystal ball predictions.

So far the average voter voted 1.23 brands, thought that may have been higher.
Already have Agco, which is definitely a significant change and CIH X150 and X250 which might be argued significant change units announced.

Anyone have any other leads/rumours on any brands in the poll?

Rumour mill & unreliable grape vine says Case to have #10 twin rotor in 2020/21.

I guess someone will spot something in the field at some time in the future & post the pics here! :laugh:

No rumours floating around?
Not rumour but fact, Claas Omaha plant is closed to tours until end of July. Hmm..
Someone must know something about the others!

What I know is with grain prices, our CAD and equipment prices, not a lot of people really care about new iron right now!
Good R and D does not care about grain markets or equipment prices, competition dictates research must march on knowing they are in a cyclical industry that varies around the world.
It’s becoming pretty obvious Claas is lining something up, you think Deere wants to be caught flat footed because bjtjjl can’t get the prices he wants?
