My dealer in SIl will have one to demo this fall. It will be the biggest one with 12 row head. He asked if they will have a TJ tractor and a 1000 bu grain cart to go with it. No rain in 5 weeks for us. From very wet year to one of the dryest I have ever seen. Corn only 3' tall. I don't think a new combine will be here for a long time. I sure won't need the 1000 bu grain cart, a 250 bu wagon will do for 40 ac. I hope everybody else has enough rain.

Corn 3' tall sounds pretty good right about now. I live in Wisconsin, half our corn is drowned out and the rest is only about 8 inches tall.

New CR is located at NH dealership here in Regina, Sk, Canada. Drove by too fast to see the model number.

It seems that the dealers I talk to think that the CR940 and 960 will be the big sellers around here. I don't think anybody here can use the 970 unless they come out with a bigger flex head than 30', because I don't see how you could keep the combine full. You can only drive so fast! Ilnh

I have a cr 940 in wheat know and was a little worried about the hp in mud condions but I was running it in 50 bu wheat and went threw mud and did just fine. Working on them is very easy to do anything that you want. I have had JD combines before I got a Newhollad tr99 and the support that you get from newholland is much better then I have ever seen.

Good to know that the CR's seem to be working good in there first full year of combining with out too many problems. Keep us posted on how they do down under. The one CR 960 that my dealer sold did good this fall here. It only needed a software update they say. Seems dealer has traded his tool box for a laptop nowIJ What nextIJ Ilnewholland

I run a 940. There underpowered compared to the TR they replased. A 940 is 295hp and your 62 is 285 I think. It should replace your 62 but won't be much of an upgrade. A 960 would be an upgrade. What year CR are you looking atIJ Take care, Nathan

Was looking at the 940 or 960.Salesman says 940 will be short on hills. It will be hard to go away from gleaner as this site has help me alot and the gleaner guys like dan and tbran know there stuff. What do you think about changing.

Ya the 940 will definatly be short on power if you've got hills. The cab is awesome. Stone trap is both nice and will drive you crazy. Very sensitive. If you know the Gleaner then why changeIJ like you said thers guys on this site that know their stuff. Not enough of us on this site that know the CR's well enough. If I had to buy a combine it be either be an Axial flow or a Gleaner. I'm just lucky I get to run one. I'd love a CR but with all those electronics, how well are they gunna be in 20 years. Are you near Marshaltown IowaIJ Just curious. If so your dealer sells both NH and Gleaner. Take care and let us know, Nathan

Thanks for the comments. I am from Clay Center Nebraska in the south central part of the state. I am finding that the other colors are shying away from the silver machine when I get there trade quote. I was fairly sure that would happen and it is not going to be worth it to me to give any extra. Right now our main worry is our football team if you could call it that.

Your comments on trade values are true for sure, we have experienced similar things here. However doing some rough math the last time around we found the gleaner cheaper to own due to their lower initial pricing here. We looked at purchase pricing on our gleaner and the quotes from 3 other colors assuming same tade in value as no one would actually come out and give true cash figures. (We were told off the record that our values were very close by one of the salesmen) and looked at what the those other colors were bring in 6 years later in similar hour ranges and as close on options as possible and they were getting more, but less than 25% of the original difference more. Just my experience.
