Re: 8970
Nice pics, that first one makes me wish I'd gotten that 8970 with Quicke loader and duals this summer. :-(

But oh well, good think I didn't cause now I'm getting a 7030 Deere! :-D

That last one, the Ford is very interesting, never seen one like that before. Looks to be in beautiful shape considering it's age.

Re: 8970
jdeere, it's a 7630 (Large Frame) with IVT, heavy duty front axle, 710/70R38s and yes, the JD 746 front end loader :-P Not only that, but I'm actually going down to the factory to drive it off the assembly line on February 7th. :-D

Michiel, I'd prefer a Fendt 818 over a 7530 as well, but not when it comes to the Deere Large Frames with IVT. ;-)

I don't know, I considered an 818 with 880MSL loader, but the cab just didn't turn my crank. :-\ The 936 is a totally different story, and if that design was on the smaller models... I may not have made the same decision. ;-)

Re: 8970
Josh are you planing on doing lots of loader work? I'm just curious, because my brother works on a feedlot out there, and they have a IVT tranny in one of their loader tractors, but they never use it. All of the guys prefer the quad shift for the loader chores. But if you've ordered it is too late anyway.

Re: 8970
I don't tell te prices, but I can tell you that a full options Fendt 818 with 850 working hour allready on the clock costs as much as a new 7530 with 50km/h transmission, active cab suspension, front suspension and a front hitch with PTO, but WITHOUT a Isobus connection.. And just that option is what we need on our new tractor. :-)

Re: 8970
jdeere, we're looking forward to it, it's my mom's new toy. :-P

Russ, yes I'm thinking this tractor will be doing a lot of loader work. When we first started looking at it we were saying, it will run the new bale processor, and we'll use the other tractors for pretty much everything else, keep the hours low on this tractor, keep it for 5 years and under 2,500 hours. But now that I'm thinking about it more, it'll probably be used for pretty well everything, a lot of which is loader work, especially with the 9-foot bucket and grapple, and dual bale fork.

A little over a year ago the Deere dealer brought me out two 7020s to try, a 7520/741 with IVT and a 7720/746 with PowrQuad. Both transmissions were excellent, however I'm not sure if it was the transmission I liked in the 77 or simply the bigger engine, more power. Overall the IVT was definitely nicer, especially the controls and CommandArm. Placement of the joystick is slightly awkward though I'll admit that.

In a way I like the '20 and '30 series PowrQuad controls better, but in a way the traditional '00 and '10 series are better, especially for loader work. I can be operating in B or C range during silage (like I was this past summer with a 7410), and I can shift right from C1-C4, without buttoning up through each gear, C1-C2-C3-C4. Drive up to the bagger, throw the speed selector all the way back when pulling up, drop the bale in, throw it in reverse and throw it all the way into C4 for reversing, back to C1 as you're pulling up to the truck, back to C4 for reversing and traveling back to the bagger. Saves a lot on the clutch as by doing this I don't even need to stop, just shuttle shift when I'm grabbing or dropping a bale.

Where abouts is the feedlot your brother works at and what's the name? I know a guy who worked at a local feedlot recently, they kept two 7720/746s in the feed bunks to load 2007 Peterbuilt mixer trucks, sure signs of someone with too much money. ;-) :-\

Michiel, forgive my ignorance but what exactly is an Isobus connection? :-[ I don't know about a Fendt, but I can tell you I wouldn't want to go 50km/h in that 7520 I tried that's for sure. :-(

Re: 8970
Josh A: A Isobus connection is a system to connect your machine with your tractors computer in a way you don't need a extra monitor, in a way like that you can use the Vario stick for the machine's options.
John Deere has a system called CANBUS, Lemken machinery operates with ISOBUS, in that way you can't connect with a Deere.. Isobus a an option which you have to pay for at a Deere.

Re: 8970
jdeere, i look forward to it, hopefully we won't be in B.C. when you're up this way though, :-P
Rony might even be up this way as well if things work out. :-)

Russ, that's way down south there, Drumheller area or so, near Pine Lake & Pennhold right? I'm up in the Edmonton region, been down there once or twice though.

Michiel, I'll admit I don't entirely understand it, but I get what you mean now, thanks. That's one thing I like about the Fendts, the fact of having the built in screen that remembers different implements, just doesn't suit my operation.

Re: 8970
Thanks guys, there will definitely be plenty of pictures, hopefully they'll turn out, not so experienced with any indoor shots, as you've probably seen.

That sounds about right Russ.

Re: 8970
aslomp - ya, I know of a couple people who've take pictures, and even seen a video on youtube of the 8000 series assembly line, but they don't tend to turn out right anyhow. I took a tour of a CNH factory a couple years ago, pictures turned out, but didn't warrant sharing.

I'm not sure how the Gold Key program works, but I know of someone who bought a TG255, and at the end they were given a video showing their tractor from beginning to end, finishing with the owner driving it off the line. It was featured at the Built For You (NH) event I went to. Not sure if there's anything of the sort for Deere.

What all is produced there? 7000LF & SF obviously, but the combines and I thought the 8000 series were assembled in Moline? What about the 9000s?

I plan on going through Waterloo, Moline (World Head Quarters), and possibly the Kinze plant. Not sure if there are any other tours down there or not?
