Macdon needs something seriously game changing, considering an 12 year old fd70 with a turbodrum will keep up with the latest fd140.

I believe they have something, but must be a ways away yet, they won’t talk about it at all. But I know 3 people that have ran it.

No it doesn’t and after years of macdons poor excuse for a transport I’ll pass on that. Deere previous self contained transport wasn’t much better.

Well, the Big Tractor Power channel on Youtube had a video up just seconds ago about the new X9 1100. One of the farms he follows was harvesting wheat with multiple 790's and they had a 1100 demo running along side them.

The driver he was riding with had driven the 1100 for a few hours and was giving his impression of it. He mentioned that their 790's were running around 3.5 mph with 45' head and the 1100 was getting over 5 mph "and it wasn't complaining about it".

It seems at this time the video has been switched to private. Maybe someone at camp green still doesn't want anything really said about it yet. There didn't seem to be anything negative in the video when I watched it...
*Edit
There it is.

Well finally some actual farmer who has ran the combine for a few hrs has talked about it. Sounds real impressive and the unloading auger empty feature is something other manufactures should follow along with. Longevity will be the next hurdle. Will it survive the long haul. A machine that harvests that much more grain will wear fast. 7 semi loads of corn an hr is no small amount of grain to run through a machine. That is frickin impressive if true. A 1000 hrs in corn country and every auger in there might be non existant . I can honestly say one would have to expect this kind of wear with this volume of grain harvested. We can all complain about the price but many of you spent $800,000 on a combine going 3.5 mph in wheat so 1.2 mil at 5.5mph in the same crop the math says the X9 is a far better deal than 2 Lexion's. Nice to see JD step up their game. They had too. Many have switched and maybe they will win back some of those green faithful again so they can wear their JD attire again. Yrs to come Ritchie bros will have a pile for sale like any other machines. What will it's value be at a 1000 hrs? It will have harvested a pile of crop by then so should be worth way less than one would figure.

Ummmmmm...... an X9 won’t replace two lexions. They are pretty even till it gets dark then like most rotor machines they can struggle

The Ideal already has the the unloading auger empty feature, it also lets you adjust the amount of flow for unloading. You can control flow from 0 to 100 % an awesome feature for topping of grain carts on the go.

Case has also had the feature since 2012, plus the latest Claas combines have it.

the latest Claas combines have it.
But a slightly different approach, shut off auger, tank augers shut off instantly and vertical auger runs 5 seconds to clear it.
You can also just run just 1 tank auger for 1/2 speed topping.
