Re: 3-9660sts
I am a part time farmer but I just work for on a farm I dont
own one. Farming is realy not profitable unless you farm
alot of acres and even than its not very profitable. We farm
about 7500 acres and are the largest farm in the area.

Re: 3-9660sts
Hey good to hear from you. I dont drive the combines I drive
the 8200T and grain cart but im still learning so hopefully
I will be done my training soon. Can I ask why the 9660sts
is your favourite because its the same as the 9760sts and
the 9860sts with less power. Just curious. Have a good one.

Re: 3-9660sts
very nice pictures Josh, where do you guys farm, in manitoba
or saskatchewan? because here in alberta and in ontario you
don't see that many farms with so many acres, because here
in southern alberta it's all irrigated:-)

Take care

Re: 3-9660sts
why do you use those tractors with tracks though, is that
because you got some hills out there, it won't be very wet
eh?:-)

Re: 3-9660sts
Hey, we farm in Sarnia Ontario. We have a few big farms in
this area but we are the largest. There are a few farms that
farm anywear from 3000-6000 acres. We use the tracks because
of compaction and also they are very versatile and easier to
get in close to the trucks. It's not that wet but sometimes
it gets a little mushy. Take it easy.

Re: 3-9660sts
Josh, I think the 9660 STS is my favorite because is the
perfect power for the farms in my country (a small one), the
9760 & 9860 are too powerful and the platforms & heads for
those two are too big.
Nice to hear from you!
Keep customizing JD toys, jajaja

Re: 3-9660sts
Jontiras,
Greetings from Costa Rica. Our hour zone is 8 hours behind
yours. For example if in Costa Rica is 12:00 am, in Greece
is 8:00 am.
How many hectares do you have of corn?
Take care,

Re: 3-9660sts
About them track eh....
Here in South west Ontario you actually don't need tracks on
tractor or carts, because it is not hilly, or wet land at
all!
The thing is that the bigger operations here, farm a couple
of thousand acres with relative few tractors/drivers.
Even with the huge equipment, it takes them longer to plant
the crop in the spring.
The only way to widen the "window of opportunity" during
planting and harvest is by putting tracks on the tractor to
be able to go earlier in the field, and stay there longer
even a little rainfall comes down.

In the old days the farmers said, that "they did not need
front wheel assist on the tractor which they used for
plowing, because if you need 4WD you should stay at
home...."

Today we put tracks on the tractor, as they do on a tank in
the war, to be able to get thousands of acres crops in and
off the land , with only a few people.

That's the price they pay for consolidation. My question is:
where does this end? How will farming look like in 15 years
from now?

Re: 3-9660sts
that's pretty interesting you just wrote canadian farmer.
that seems like the way why to choose tracks instead of
wheels.

-How farming will look like in 15 years from now?
every side of farming seems to be more and more the work of
computers and things like that. i think in 15 years almost
everything will be used by computers, maybe you just don't
need someone on the tractor anymore, probably it can do all
the work by itself then, who nows:-)

Take Care,
Rony
