What’s everybody’s thought on quad tracks? Likes and dislikes?
*******, the app wouldn't allow me to reply to your comment. Our max HP for the 9300 is 430. You must make sure that you have a diagnostic p...More
The problem with tires is if your planter is heavy (John Deere DB)you have to have a lot of air in the back tires to move from field to fiel...More
We have had quads for 13 years. If you are 500+ hp they will pull without power hop that we get with our wheeled tractors under heavy loads....More
I wouldn't have anything else
Not sure if this will help anyone, but If your looking at a quad to purchase and not quite sure on the power, here's our max hp recommendati...More
****, Do you have data like that for a JD9300 for max tuned HP?
Hey *********, here's the magnums.
Our max recommendations are determined by looking at each machines specially as far as engine, tranny etc...More
Do you have this chart for magnum series as well?
How are the tuning recommendations determined ?
This is how I justify a 540 quad trac. It pulls a 33 yard k tec scraper and has got me farming 65 acres of land that was never farmed. I hav...More
We have a 2014, case row track (18” tracks). We bought it used from a good farm with 700hrs through RME.. the tracks were replaced roughly a...More
Those row tracks are an after market add on too a magnum. If they’re going too last you can’t go much faster than 10 or 12 mph on the road. ...More
In my opinion tires vs tracks is not the issue. I look at it from a cost standpoint. 800 metric tires will run around $4000/tire and Lsw's m...More
That’s not an equitable comparison....just saying
I will endeavor to put a sharper pencil to the comparison.
So your saying you cab purchase a. CAT for under 100,000? We used t0run CATS.
.now it’s 2 quads and 3 wheeled.
Traded the 9200 with pto for the 875B for 70,000 to boot at a local Deere dealer.
I got lucky found the 865C outright for 97500
620’s have come down in price and the decline in price of the caterpillars have slowed. So they are closer together in price. At the time w...More
I pull my 24 row 30” planter with a 765B with a C9 in it . I am usually glued to the hydraulic output screen and not watching the fuel Gal...More
Ran a 2013 500 with def. hated the def as it was a chance for the guys to stand around and yuck it up while pouring in 2.5 gallon jugs. Ra...More
I have to question 1/3 price,p. Not with apples to apples. Our 2 quads on 24x30 planters run 12.5 - 15 gpa. You would have to be at 90% p...More
We just bought a CaseIH Row tract (tracks in the back, tires in the front). Absolutely love it. Smoother ride through the field, less slipp...More
We are running 24in tracks. Was told about the speed issue. Have talked to some other people that are using them. They say watch the temp on...More
Don’t put that machine over 14 mph on the road. There’s a ton of those machines in my area for running potato harvesters including one on my...More
When it is muddy, nothing including LSWs compares.
The narrow width on the road is also an advantage.
The maintenance costs are higher and...More
Likes, smooth field ride, no flat tires, plenty of traction. Dislikes, maintenance, more stuff to go wrong, digging mud and residue when its...More
Have had two case combines with tracks now and just traded for LSW’S. Much cheaper, better ride, more fuel efficient, and higher road spe...More
U can buy air cab kits for them that really helps road travel and al around ride. I’ve had quads since 2009. I would never go back to a tir...More
Here’s a link to a 13 minute YouTube video I did about a year ago. Not a complete comparison, but I thought it...More
