if anyone on here is from the midwest then they will now how this year has been...extremely wet and muddy...did anyone from where you are get tracks and if they did what machines were they on...we got a 9120 and it had tracks on it and we went places with the 9120 that the 2388's with duals couldn't go and they had 8 row header or 30ft platform and the 9120 had a 40ft draper and 12 or 16 row header

Man fields that wet look like rice paddies instead of cornfields!!!! Our fields in Pennsylvania looked liek that this past spring, one farmer around here never got his corn planted till June!

normally in the tractor i stick it in 4wd,go flat out and hope for the best lol
