Not just me Don, when Deere dealers wont sell you a new combine because they want to sell inventory they already own, I think it’s more than a few farmers they are worried about. I like new **** as much as anyone, but I think the r and d will slow down for a bit.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?
Was at local dealer the other day, asked if they’d be demoing a new combine at Matts (the people I harvest with) this fall.Not just me Don, when Deere dealers wont sell you a new combine because they want to sell inventory they already own, I think it’s more than a few farmers they are worried about.
Quite likely.I think that poll means that 35.96% of the people on this forum(who probably run JD combines) wish there was a new model.:wink:
Actually not quite correct. Only 27 people who voted for Claas are correct and Jason appears to have nailed the date in post #2! He can text me the winning lottery numbers later.:wink:Now that we know Class will unveil with their “CLAAS is revolutionising the combine harvester“ plan August 1st at least 30.34% of us are correct!
That would be a wild claim from for any manufacturer let alone one that normally makes major changes without a word that would be two model changes for some.As for revolutionizing the combine harvester that is a pretty wild claim.
Since this is a worldwide introduction I guess a color change for North America (truckers hauling yellow ones are seeing green ones at the plant) wouldn’t cut it as revolutionary.As for revolutionizing the combine harvester that is a pretty wild claim. Better be something good like a decent sized unload auger or steps in the grain tank on this model, that would be revolutionary.....ha ha ha ha ha
