Re: 6430
Very nice, you went with the PowerQuad then? Nice tires! Glad to see another one with a loader too, should be a nice improvement over the 6410. ;-)

I'm supposed to go to the dealer today (Thursday), ours will be PDI'd today for delivery on Friday.

However with the weather/road conditions, I think I'll tell them to keep it till next week. Local NH dealer had a trailer brake off the truck. It hit the ditch, rolled, and totalled the tractor that was on it. I'd rather minimize the chance of that happening to us. Been waiting 2 years for it, I can wait a few more days. :-D

Re: 6430
The 6430 is rated at 95 PTO Hp, and I believe 123 Engine Hp.

They didn't look like Firestones to me, looked too square... you could be right.

Russ, which carrier system did you get for the loader?

I'm getting rather ticked off lately, I see Deere has now come out with a Global Carrier option instead of 600 series latching, yet what about 700 series? Is there perhaps an option for global latching off a 746 that most don't know about?

I hate the John Deere latching system with such a passion, I went and got an adapter made so I can use Quicke (ALO) attachments instead of Deere. Now I'm wondering if Deere has a solution my dealer doesn't know about. Too late now though, as the adapter has already been ordered, along with a set of Euro hooks to adapt my Deere bucket.

Never thought I'd say this, but making arrangements for this tractor has been such a headache I can't wait for it to be over and done with. :-[

josh a why did you not just get a quike loader?

Re: 6430
Josh, Did you go to the factory already? We got the auto quad with 40km/hr tranny. And the 4 valve engine. Also we got the global carrier for the loader. And these tractors have 115 hp. Tires I'm not sure about, I'll check tomorrow when they deliver(weather permitting ;-) .)

Re: 6430
Russ, unfortunately no I didn't make it to the factory. The assembly date for the tractor was to be February 7th, but was bumped up to January 24th at the last minute (Jan 20th). Since I won't be able to drive my own tractor off the line, I won't be going down until August, for the intro of the 7030SF (North American version) and possibly 9030 (new 4wd series). Can stay down longer then, more things to see, and can rent a Harley for touring around on. ;-)

You got the AutoQuad, but did you get the mechanical or electric remotes? Nice thing about those tractors, they have the shifting built right into the loader joystick, you'll like that. What all will it be doing?

Ours was originally going to be delivered tomorrow too, but now not until Monday morning. Have fun with your new toy.

Hugh... if I had gotten any other tractor, I would have gotten the Quicke Dimension loader. If I'd gotten a 7520 I'd have gotten a Q75 over the 741, and I'd get a Q85 over an 843. But the 746 is a totally different style of loader, best one from Deere yet. I don't like the 700 series latching, but I like the 746 loader itself. It's very strong, better mounting frames, better visibility, under-the-boom self-leveling bars, better forward reach -- the Quick loader isn't designed for the long nose on the 7020/7030LF -- and it's designed for this specific tractor. Tractor may also have a 14-16 foot angle blade mounted off the loader too, I know the Quicke can't handle it, they'll twist or break off the sub frames.

You see the physical size of these loader arms?


And Quicke has kind of cheaped-out on some of the Dimension parts. Wires crack in the cold, the lock-n-go handle have been known to snap off in the cold or if they connect with the front fenders when removing or installing the loader, the "tool box" covers open and close up to 10 times before snapping off, same as the covers for the grease nipples (no hinges, just cheap plastic). These aren't just my opinions, all of those complaints also come straight from an ALO/Quicke North America representative as well. Believe me, I like the Quicke loaders, and on any other tractor I would get one. Not like there's a lot of choice now...

The 700 series latching hasn't been changed since the early 1990s with the introduction of the 740 loader. This means you can share attachments between a JD 7300 and a 7930. Global Carrier is, and definitely will be the universal attachment system for a good while into the future.

Sorry for hijacking your post Russ. :-[

Re: 6430
That too bad Josh.....I guess in a way, at least you get your tractor sooner:-D . Guess we'll have to wait til fall for some pics now. We got the electric remotes too, and the electric joystick. You can't get the shifter buttons on the mechanical joystick....They are on there but they aren't "activated" The loader will be used for loading silage and on the bale shredder. About 95% of the hours will be these two chores, which is why we got the 673 loader, It is much heavier than the 640. The tractor also has the TLS, I have no experience with it so I don't know what to expect. Hopefully I'll have more pics tomorrow.

1st job for the new machine, plow open my in-laws drive way. Took nearly 3 hours, there was snow to the top of the front tires.....I wish we had a snowblower.

Re: 6430
Final shot. The tires are Continental brand. I was wrong about the electric joy stick, we got the mechanical one. You can't get the gear shift on the electric joy stick, but you can on the electrical. If you can see the background, you can see the snowdrift that the cows are on. That fence is 10 feet high. We've had alot of snow and blowing snow this year and we have another 2 months of winter yet. :-(

Re: 6430
Looks good Russ, especially like the shot on the truck, the grapple makes it look bigger. Yes, I thought gear shifting was only available on the mechanical joystick... When I looked at a 7720/746/AutoQuad over a year ago, the one dealer said they would rewire the electric joystick the way I wanted it and by-pass the toggle switch on the console. TLS will be nice, did you get LSS(Loader suspension)?

We actually haven't had that many snow problems, got a lot in early December, another in January, and then again last weekend, don't know how much it snowed vs drifted, but it's a pain. The drifts are packed so much the TV145 doesn't want to push very much, especially not with the bale processor on.

Tomorrow I hope to get the whole yard and drives done with the 7630 while my mom does the feeding, do a little roading to pick up a bale spear, and just get familiar with the machine so I can show the others. Then it'll be hooked up to the bale processor for a few months.

More pics, if you please. ;-)

Re: 6430
I'm not sure where my head was with the joystick/shifter thing. our dealer said the same thing last year, we were looking at the same combination as you. Loading out of the bags is a litte easier with the smaller frame tractors. And the 7000 series is more tractor than we need just to load silage, and move a 1000 strawbales a year. ;-) The drifting snow is a bugger to try and get through, you can only push so far and then you have to make a pile. Hard to do a neat job of scraping the yard. No we didn't get the LSS, because of the triple link. I'm not totally sure both together would be more help than one seperate. And I thnink it was the manual that said for loading silage and haybales that you should turn it off? Does that make sense? When I was clearing the above driveway I turned off the TLS because when the bucket got heavy then it always starts to dip down and then you start digging dirt. I'll try and get a couple more shots in action around the farm.

Thanks Jeff. Yeah we really impressed with it so far. We farm in central Saskatchewan. You loved the super cold day eh? I'll trade winters anytime with you. :-D -40 just isn't fun anymore.
