    So this isnt exactly mowing equipment but i couldn't believe my eyes when i saw this train on my way back to college today. We counted at least 60 brand new JD combines, and that was before the train dissapered under the bridge so there was definitly more.

    Yep, these high grain prices are selling lots of new farm equipment. That, plus much of the plains has been under sever drought for a long time, but this year is actually WET for a change. Lots of high hopes for this years wheat crop out here.

    i don't think they are from china. They were in cleveland and seemed to be heading west. Maybe time to buy som JD stock. Figure those are about $250,000 a piece.

    Duekster, why all the **** talkin on deere? Maybe someone is a jealous? Deere makes a great machine and is "American" as they get. We are in the age of global economy. Get used to it.

    All those are made in the U.S.A.!!! I think those would sink in China's rice fields. They've got a billion hands to harvest grain! LOL.
