Buy two, like that you will always have one running. Neighbor has a 2055 and a 2155, never had a good thing to say about them. Another neighbor HAD a 2155, it burned. Oops, Something red burned. The neighbor with the two wished they'd both burn. The 2055 can be bought, right, and is in real nice shape, shedded and good heads. Hasn't picked this being the third year.

Why don't you upgrade to a 9965 ?? I just happen to have one for sale if you're interested. Right across the river too. Email is in profile.

YOU will spend as much time under the 2155 as in the seat GO check the 9965 out across the river

Ive got a 2155, mines been pretty good, only real bad thing to say about it is when cotton gets heavy it is prone to plugging, and it seems like i clean doors and adjust doffers more than my green neighbors. I don't know if its a fan or duct design problem, but if it had jet posts like the green one, I think red could have solved a lot of problems. Plastic pad holders are prone to breaking regularly, probably replace a couple each morning, no big deal though. Basket on a 2155 dosent raise up and down which stinks if you have lots of powerlines. I also bought a 9965 this year to run with it so I'll give you a comparison of the two running in a few weeks, maybe i'll see what all my green friends say im missing. Cab on 2155 is great, the 9965 cab seems kind of stoneage compared to the 21, but the 65 is significantly nicer than the 1844 it replaced. 2155 heads spread hydraulicly so servicing both sides of the head is not that big of an issue, you just have to keep two different spindles. Cummins motor is a plus. All in all I wouldn't be scared of a well cared for 2155, but maybe I just don't know any better!

CaseIH pickers are good if they been taken care of, and like ANY picker, some money has been spent on them. 2155 have wet brakes(very good and reliable) where 2055 are dry brakes (may as well unhook'em, very touchy and sucked). If you could find a good 2555 in your price range would be the way to go. It's the same as 2155, but newer(less hours) and has augers on the packer and can usually pack another 1/4 mile pass in it. Oh Yeah almost forgot ALL Red Pickers pick both sides of the row not just one side, and I think that would mean more cotton in the basket!!!!!!!!!!!! Just my .02

Tim, what kinda deal on that 65 and is it 4 or 6 row? My 2155 did pretty well for me last year, bought it and ran it without doing anything but moisture pads and grinding doffers. I had some issues wrapping up but figured it was my ignorance to pickers in general. I lost 15 pounds (seriously)going up and down that ladder for one reason or another. Everyone tells me a Deere will just go and not have to mess with them much. Sure like my cab and controls though and picking both sides of the row.

Your last statement is not entirely true or deere pickers would still conventional heads. What more the red pickers take off the stalk it drops on the ground. Have run both pickers all my life and side by side it is very noticeable. But putting more cotton in the basket is just not true. But to op question. If the pickers has been taken care of it will be a good pickers. Not my choice but gets thr job done.

Funny you say that, because I used to look forward to Picking season because I'd lose weight. Now that I have John Deere pickers, i'm not not out the cab near as much, or crawling through stalks to unstop a back door. lol.
As to the original poster, I've driven red pickers for years, as of late I've went green on the 6 rows, but I had great service out of my red 4 rows. My last 4 row was a 2555, and I'd put it up against any 65, it would pick circles around it (5mph), and mine at least had more air where it wouldn't choke up much, and the packing system in the basket is second to none. I had a 2055 that was very reliable, but they lack air or something, I would be in good shape at the end of the crop from crawling up and down it to unchoke doors. What I'm saying is if you find you wanna try a Red picker, they will get the job done, there were many in service around here at one time. I would look for a 2555 if I could. I have a landlord that has a good 9960 if your interested, I'm thinking it could be had for around 6000, let me know if your interested?

Andrew , I've got it listed on tractor house. If I don't get it sold I'll probably run it. Heads are in pretty good shape.
