Carlsbad, New Mexico / Pecos, Tx
So we are getting back into cotton this coming year and I've been doing a little bit of shopping. Looking at deere's web page and the 7460's say they upped fan capacity 20%. Is that really a big deal?
Looking between the 7455 and 7460, with around the same hours... I can get a 7455 for 40-50K vs about 100-110K for a 7460. Obviously age has a factor, but what about overall performance of the machines?
We are on 30" rows. Looking for a 6 row machine. Should average 3 bale, maybe more.
