"I agree with zach. We own a 7720 (not titan II however) and they are an ok combine but if I was in the market for a new one, I would definitely wait until i could afford an International or at least a newer Deere. A 1460 IH or 1660 Case…"
"Okay, so would you basically recommend this to someone that cannot afford to get anything else? I will admit I am relaying messages over the phone as I know nothing and I am the one that has the computer and is doing the investigating on this…"
I have only had this tractor for 3 years and have only put a few hundred hours on it, its kind of early to tell. This spring I had trans/clutch problems, took it to the dealer and they couldn't figure what was wrong. They changed all fluids and tightened up the clutches. I spent a lot of money on labor, but it works now.
This tractor has two clutch packs, one for gears 1-9 and another for 10-18. There is a big jump between 9-10, this can really give the machine a jerk or bog you down under heavy load. The genesis has only 16 speeds and I think they addressed that problem, but other than that i think the transmission between the 8030s and 8070s are pretty similar.
I went to Decatur, il for a Wyffels Corn Strategies meeting and they had twin row corn in the tent. Looked really good in July. There were twin row beans outside of Decatur that looked really good as well. Seeing those kinda peaked my interest. thanks for the reply.
Yeah, they're both just 4 lb generics with equivalent surfactant loads. The glysupreme is the only full Chinese product I'm handling (some others are chinese material formulated in the US so it's US "made") but it actually has the best support program behind it.
