Well I was running down the road today and spotted a new 764 at the dealer. Pulled a illegal U turn and wala here it is.

Taked to the boy cleaning it, goes over 40mph, and the price was over $700,000

Here is the video of it moving

I still don't get the point of it? How do the tracks handle the speed? I heard someone a couple hours north of here had bought one.

The dirt rags I thought were saying around 400K which I thought was fricking crazy. If the wash boy is right and I doubt he is, 700K is certifiably insane. Deere will never sell these things at that price. Especially now. Make for some nice 700K yard art thou.

Thats what I was saying. I wouldn't pay 200K for it if i had the money to do so. I would much rather have a new 700J

in all seriousness, how fast can you really grade? ive heard that itll do 18mph with the blade down, but at that point how well can the lasers keep up with it??

best use for it that i could think of is airport snow removal, put a big 12-16 foot pusher or variable blade on it and it would make quick work of runways.

that look sick why would u nned to go 40mph with a dozer :usflag::weightlifter:

Just ask any Case IH quad track owner how well the tracks/uc holds up at road speeds! Heat at 40 mph will kill them!

Good point. As for plowing, it can't come close to a wheel loader.

I am sure the 40mph is for in between jobs for like garding one side of lot then running to the other side and back or for graders and then having to run and dump them far away. It is defintely a Niche machine not for all situations. I bet a lot of people said it about a ctl/mtl loader when they came out saying why use that tiny machine when they use their dozer or track loader and then the uses were found.

I can't hold a finish grade in 3rd gear on my dozer. what that like 5 or 6mph? lord knows what would happen going 18mph and hitting a stump!!!!

It'll travel at 16mph.

I'm just curious, do you do a lot of finish grading with the stumps still in place?

That's not how you speed grade. This is how you speed grade!

HEHE.

I really don't understand Deere on this speed dozer. They hyped it up to be the next best thing since sliced bread, but is it?

I have before. Some people just like to push dirt over stumps rather than dig them up to save money. You name it I've seen it.

Go to grade everything out and find it the hard way.

That would be a jarring time for sure.

3rd gear to a dead stop on a dozer? One can assume that it's painful to say the least. haha.

What happens when the center pins start getting loose and that thing starts doing the shake shake at that kind of speed.

I don't think many of those will be sold.

in heavy snow situations i think this machine would get more traction than a wheel loader. Ive seen 950's with 20' pushers spin in place, although a 20' pusher is a beast no matter what machine its on. the key is to have a slip hitch on the pusher so it floats letting you keep weight on your tires for traction.

although these JCB fastracs would be killer for snow use!

The top speed of the dozer is 16 mph, not 40 mph.

Can anyone else verify the $400k price tag?

I don't see an advantage for that thing in the snow. A loader with a good set of logging chains will destroy that thing in the snow. Not saying the HSD will be terrible in the snow, hard to say, but it's tough to beat chains for traction, especially on ice.

well throwing chains into the equation is a whole different ballgame, i dont know of many property managers that would allow chains to be used on their nice asphalt parking lots.

and then again it would depend on the tread and compound of the rubber tracks, like how an mtl is a much better snow machine than a ctl.

I suppose you're right, I honestly didn't think about that possiblity. Touche, sir.

It varies. Where I live now, in the Seattle area, typically the snow here is wet and heavy when we do actually get some. This year has been wild, practically no snow. Couple days ago was sunny, blue skies, and near 60 degrees.

Back where I grew up, the snow is light most of the time however chains are nice even with favorable conditions. When I worked at a ski area last winter running a snowcat, I learned the effectiveness of loaders with chains. They get run up and down the highway to get to and from some lots, WSDOT has no complaints and as far as I know, the damage is almost non-existant even with some serious chains on 950 and 966 size loaders.

i hear ya, but i could just imagine the calls i would get. even now people call telling me how the plows leave some scratch marks in the driveways and how come i dont use a plastic or rubber edge. they want a clean driveway but dont want us to scrape well??

Makes sense. Only difference is that with any job you'd be using a decent sized loader on, the possibility of someone calling and complaining about chains scratching the asphalt would decrease but it's still a possibility. People are so misinformed sometimes.

AMEN! I love being told how to do my job, im laid back enough to just listen politely then go ahead and get it done anyways.

Deere says MSRP is about $330k. Prices are usually less than MSRP though, right?

Our local deere dealership MAY get one of these this fall. If so I've been told It'll be available for 2 day demo. I'd have to Saturday Sunday. I'm excited! It'll be used for snow pushing, and I've been quoted around 300k depending on your options
