    I know there has to be some more farmers in here.
    In the stuck picture the field was a little wet, took a 8100 to pull it out, my 7400 didn't have a chance.
    The corn field is a customers of mine, I stack hay/straw for him. My little brother is 5'10 to give you a idea.

    Maybe for Iowa lol. That field was a good 8-12 inches taller than anything else around.

    Telling a farmer his corn looks runty is worse then saying he has a but ugly wife. ;)

    i realize you like John Deere, but if you are planning to plow with that, you might be a redneck

    Dose it stack it like that on its own or do you have someone back there doing it?

    You should know this by now, but:

    It's not the length of your stalk but the weight of your cob that matters! ;)

    Building on the left penthouse.;) I went home for lunch that day so I just parked the combine out front.
    The baler just drops the bales and that picks them up and stacks them. Then you either drop them in the field and have a truck pick up a load and drive them back to the barn or you drive the machine back. The purpose is to eliminate handling the bales, we use to have quite a few of them around here. Now some of the guys pull a stacker behind the baler and it ties 18 small squares into 1 big square bale and you can move with a bale spear.

    You control everything in the cab. I can stack just under 4000 bales in a good long day. It will run down the road at about 40mph with a load and 50mph empty. Almost 60% of my income in the summer comes from stacking hay. It has a perkins diesel, 5spd trans with a split rearend. Sitting so far in front of the axle makes it a little different to drive but I love it. Put about 580 hours on it this year, picked up a little over 160,000 bales.

    We will proly never go back to a green combine,and we are going to start buying case tractors to replace the deere's but will still run the cat challengers,just to much trouble with the deere's we had problems with the combine that were factoy recall's and deere would not stand behind them and fix them,the case has half the grease fittings and they need grease half as much,and it only has 3 belts,it just has way,way less moving parts,I cant even count the # of belts the deere had.when we traded for the case it was 3 months after the deal was done before the case dealer even saw the deere tradin.they treaded sight unseen and never heard a gripe when they picked it up,and the dealer service is next to none
