The 764 has been out for a few months now. We had one at the dealership for a demo/farm show. It's incredible

yea deere came out with it. its supposed to be a high speed dozer, but i see a problem pushing dirt at 15 MPH and hit a boulder. but i think it would work great buckraking silage. its just supposed to be a high speed dozer, i think that they really are easier, especially for people who cant always take a metal tracked dozer somewhere. go to the deere website and find the section on this. i was quite impressed.

ah yes a high speed dozer seems like a needless prospect but during construction they generally move boulders >_> but it looks expensive for a farmer at the silage

Hi speed dozers aint usiually used in construction. They are normally used in mining for clearing haul roads and working off stock piles. They would never do the job that a bigger dozer like a D8 Cat would do.

This dozer wasn't made to move mountains. It's mainly a grader.

Plowing snow, pushing silage, clearing roads and leveling, etc., were what this was designed for.

Ah yes that is because they are brand new to the market. The tracs were off the quadtrac too.
there should be no reason for not working on silage but it is an constuction buldozer so it's not really designed for that.
You probally wouldent have it on a silage clamp instead jcb farm master for e.g farmmasters are much more manoverable, faster on the road, while the john deere can only have one atchament on it.
How ever this sort of machine will be ideal to go on maize bigas clamps which have ALOT of money

Farmer david, Having watched a few videos of how they make silage in North America, I think this might be suitable for the job, they seem to use a lot of big artic john deers and cases with front blades to push the sialge up into a high heap, then again I am sure a quad trac would be far more versatile as you would have it for cultivations as well. this John Deere machi9ne is for leveling off large areas of soil and maintaining road ways I think.

How many levers are on the dashboard of the average bulldozer? The kind used to bulldoze a house ... (I'm drawing a picture by the way) and I want to know how many levers a bulldozer driver would be handling
