I definately wouldn"t pay any more than that for a S550 that is bigger than a 9600 was. Then I get into the bigger models than that and I"m getting to where you can harvest 300+ acres a day and who needs that? If the new 9400 was even $10,000 cheaper then why would I pay extra for something I don"t need? I farm to make money, not buy ridiculously oversized equipment just to keep up with the Jones"es. Farming has gotten so out of hand that these guys truly believe that they need that capacity. Meanwhile their Grandpa"s picked corn with a mounted picker long hours into the night. With all due respect they weren"t any tougher than me. So why would I pay money that comes directly out of my pocket to save 2 days off of my harvest? What am I going to do those days? Watch Dr. Phil and sleep in? If the S550 cost 10,000 more and cut a whole 2 days off each harvest, then it would take me 25 years to get that back at a value of $200/day for my time. But once harvest is over these big guys don"t have anything to do so what is their time really worth? I farm some so one is fooling me with all the things they do to stay busy. Anyways the guys buying 12 row combines don"t work on their own equipment anyway. So getting back to the point, I hear it all the time from guys around here that want a new 6 row no frills machine. I"m not asking for much here. If a new 2013 F-150 was bigger than the 1998 F-350 dually was, then who would fault me for wanting a new 1998 F-150 sized truck?
