Sounds like I need to reassess the value of my 6620 for insurance purposes ...how much would an immaculate 52 reg 6620 with just under 6000hrs be worth?

We bought a 6130m

No complaints at all... super machine .. and the new r' loader is amazing!

We were looking at a 6430/6330 but the difference in price between a 3k hour one of them and a new M was not enough to encourage us to go second hand !!
Buy new, and you get warranty etc ....

Is that not what everyone said about 3050’s, 4955’s then 6910’s then 6920’s and now it’s 7530’s!
How many last classics can Deere make?
Maybe but all the R series will just get recycled as they will be too expensive to repair with all the electrics and computer controlled stuff on them.cant see any demand from third world countries for them either.no one wants modern excavators and trucks in those countries either as they cant be repaired in the middle of nowhere.its already a massive problem finding new homes for construction equipment after its first life in this country.

Judging by this thread, the 20 are better than the 30 series?
I thought the 30 had sorted all the 20 series problems?
Some 6920 were rubbish, if I remember correctly.

They’ve just had a sneaky rep come in (when I wasn’t there!) trying to swap one for a 6130R as a like for like hp/spec! :banghead: It won’t happen though I’ve sorted that;).

They where ment to come back last Friday but cancelled as I was in:cautious:.

That’s exactly what everyone said when the 00/10 series came out “aren’t they very plastic” “they won’t last like a 50” “bet the electrics don’t last!” How many 20/30 series have been exported with all their electrics?
Thing is, the electrics/controllers are actually the most reliable part of the machine, they just tell you that there’s a mechanical issue/problem 90% of the time.

Could do but want an extra tractor , so two good used , better than one new , and to be honest prefer 10/20 s to the new ones , got two 215s for all primary work , and a nice 64/66 on sprayer more than adequate than running around with a 10 ton tractor when a smaller one will do job , don't need twin beacons etc knob extension like some who cannot drive older stuff or won't .

I had a 6120m with a 623r loader on demo a couple of weeks ago and really didn't care for it. Loader had more capacity but seemed clumsy compared to my old 633 and view to the attachment was terrible. Pallet forks vanished altogether. Also quite finicky to put on. Found despite what the lad who brought it said, I had to couple the hydraulics 1st and tweak the rams. Disappointed.

I can totally see what you are saying. And at first I was of the same opinion, when compared to our 6310 and 631 loader. But performance wise there is no comparison.. I'll agree that the vision is not so good, but as we generally use a telehander around the yard it hasn't bothered me too much ..

As for attaching and detaching, it gets a lot quicker with use and practice.. although the older system is easier, and more foolproof, the new system is certainly quicker when you get the hang of it..

Project Lamport 2020

  • 152
  • 0

Project Lamport, now in its seventh year, is the UK’s leading R&D trials event. The original concept aimed to develop a cultural approach to blackgrass control, but has since evolved over the years. The site now explores improving soil health, as well as a comprehensive research project that investigates the impact of cultivations, compaction and cover crops on soil structure, organic matter and microbiology.

Expect weekly updates on Project Lamport, allowing you to participate in the entire journey rather than just the final product. These updates conclude with the official Project Lamport site demonstration and a live Q&A with our experts on the 15th of July.
