That brings back some old memories. I can remember riding around in the 3 old 7700 combines with floaters and rear wheel assist. Had a 6030 and a 7520 on the auger carts. Wish I had some pics of all of it.

DustyCedar.....and here I thought corn just came from the grocery store and beef just came prepackaged in the meat section.......sheesh...My cousins farm in Illinois and have some green and yellow equipment. Couple years ago, they were running the combine and there was a peat fire burning that hadn't been taken into account. Combine ran over the peat area and dropped into a huge hole.......kinda miss that way of living, its a good life.

Man no offense but how do you get done? We have a 9660 and a 9510 and barely get done.

I only have 150 acres, hoping to buy more. I also have a 6600

Ohh a 6600 was a big jump over a 4400 not being sarcastic we had one in the early 80s it was a nice combine.

Yea, between the 6600 and the 4400 we get it done. was thinking about getting a 9500

Not to question your farm plan but a 9500 to combine 150 acres seems a little over kill. Two combines even small ones is over kill for that few of acres. We covered 2000 acres a year with a 6600 and a 914 pulltype (included small grains and sunflowers). We did not use the pulltype in sunflowers. Different strokes I guess.

interested in bringing that here to PA?...i got a field that needs done, we usually pick it with an old M with a corn picker head on it but this is a new field thats a little too steep. It was a corn maze, thats why it hasn't been done yet...we would rather harvest it then mow it down but we can't find anyone that wants to do it

Seems like around here everyone has a different theory on how many combines they need. We have three different farmers now farming our ground. One guy has two 9600 combines and a 9610 for only 1800 acres total. Another guy had two Caterpillar combines farming 6500 acres but this year added a 3rd Cat combine. Another guy has a 9560 STS and is farming 1400 acres total. Basically it boils down to how deep your pocket is. Yeah, ksss is correct a 9500 is a big machine for that many acres. That is about the same amount of acres we have total. You also have to figure this though. They no longer make a small combine like a 9400 or 9450. Besides that the 9400 and 9450 combines cost more because they where less made. Dollar for dollar a 9500 would be more bang for the buck. I have been in several 9500 combines with 25' platforms. You can run up to an 8-row corn head on them. My buddy use to farm 2,000 acres with a 9500, 25' platform and a 6row corn head. They stepped up to a 9610. I love running it with the 12-row corn head.

yea we have to figure something out here soon...my buddies got an antique JD combine down in Virginia but i can't cross state lines until I'm 21 with a big truck and we don't want to load it on a small deckover because thats too long of a haul so we are working up something with a gooseneck...that or we plow it under and buy a cheaper combine for next year, seems like you can get them cheaper and cheaper now a days.
