    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.

    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.

    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.
