I agree Claas is proven and even better yet with their new model and the remaining Deere owners will flock to their new twin. To many $$ at stake to jump into something completely unknown, if you didn’t like it what other dealer is going to take it on trade.It is hard to imagine this Ideal garnering much market share in north america. Cost, weight, no proven performance just to name a few. Now, include a revamped "proven" Claas lineup, Deere introducing a large twin rotor next year and where do the new customers come from? This combine really brings nothing new to the table, just another big axial! The current "9" series Gleaners are the sweet spot, dealers say best reliability ever in Gleaner, super comfort cab and light weight for compaction and wet conditions.
