That was a well done clip, lots of good questions asked/answered, thanks for sharing (even if it's Red Power!).

I wish Jay would have asked what that huge tow cable running back the underside of the tractor was for. It is hooked on the frame under the front grill but runs back and hooks on to the rear section of the tractor between the rear tracks. Both attachment points are clearly visible in several of the shots.

Fun stuff

Hmmm, wonder if they make a midmount mower for it? Just right for those who frequently get stuck but of course if you stick one of those you've got a real problem.

That was cool. :usa

For a mere 675,000 clams you could own your very own. Of course at 30gph, you probably could bring a chuckwagon full of $100 bills to pay for it out of your chump change jar and stop at your nearest Greasy Spoon and Fuel, buy a $1600 cup of coffee a get a free fill up.

Anyone else notice the escorts? That alone probably costed more than most of us spend on our tractors. :laugh:

I watched that yesterday.
I enjoy Jay's features in his garage.
He must still be a very hard man to get a time slot with. I understand bringing cars to his place to review, discuss and drive as he has everything in place to do that there.
What I don't get is that he was so disinclined to be inconvenienced that they had to bring such a monster to him?
That thing needed heavy hauled and unloaded in the street, and then traffic intervention during the course of his test drive.
Don't get me totally wrong, I enjoyed the video but it would have been far better IMO if Jay had taken a little country drive and drove this machine in its native habitat. Imagine how he would have felt pulling a giant chisel plow or moldboard plow and the could have demonstrated how incredible the traction and GPS features were.

Jeff:

You bring up good points; but I suspect the reason it was brought to Jay was that it was going to a customer in Turlock, Colonfornia and Case-IH decided to bring the special edition rig it to Jay. Plus, it was a controlled environment for the Case-IH folks to show it off in the best possible light.

I've always been a night owl, and not having to punch a time clock so to speak anymore allows my decrepit body to obey my internal clock, and not the cube farm's clock.

I'm glad you and others enjoyed seeing Jay having fun with that manly tractor.

Those tractors quite often pull scrapers or pans . The cable is what they pull on if they get hung up . That is the strongest place on the tractor to pull from . Saves damage and rolling around in the mud trying to hook something up . Kevin .
