We have owned a N6 for 7 years, after 2011 season, we parked it - will probably have to sell for parts or just scrap it. Thats due to the outrageous cost of parts it needs and the engine is getting weak. It always was somewhat underpowered ( previous owner said same thing ), was always hard to keep cool - radiator was cleaned inside and out when we first bought it. had to be blown out every morning. When the ambient got above 90, just had to slow down and let engine temp dictate speed.
This machine seems to work better in a heavy crop, we always got a cage sweep warning when running in light stuff - never figured that out. We ran it with a neighbors JD 9500 once, of course the JD beat it, but didn't shame it. When everything was right, it would cut a lot wheat. right now it's problem is on the drive end of the hydrostat, Agco calls it a quill, we need both the driver and the pump input shaft. Agco's price on the driver alone was $2500. You could put that thing in an old fashioned lunch box,. Parts man at dealership couldn't believe it either, just not that much iron or machining involved for that price. Called a couple of junkyards, of course they want 1/2 of new - still to much for that part. Parts man and I both thought $600 would be all it should be worth. that's just an example - seems like everything that we tried to get from AGCO was priced out of reach. So here we set with a machine that has been well cared for, most of the belts are near new, tires are excellant and just the few parts it needs to go back to work are out of reach !! Ken
