Wiking 2017

Recommended Posts

Grass rules sadly just look at how many people wanted the class jag , and wished for the new jd8000 , good business Sence really , the demand was there before it was even prototype and any good research team would pick up on that online in places like this

The Wiking Claas 800 series are only low tech foragers, not in the same league as the 900 series.................however  the JD 8000s are in direct competition with Claas 900s.

I didn't buy an 800 series model because no one round here has one, they are all 900s.  But looking at that JD forager, its not coming anytime soon is it !!

And when it does Ive no doubt there will be 8600, 8700 and 8800  seeing as they are all the same size:rolleyes:.................I look forward to viewing the finished model.

Now what about new tractors from Wiking??

Going by the fact the cab glass is frosted,and still a prototype,I'd guess somewhere around Agritechnica,???

Have we got any idea when the JD 8000 forager will be available?   Will it be just one 1/32 AG  release every two months like the above Claas loader tractor?

According to rumours,it's been knocked back to 2018,???

Regards

Joe.

Just as well I bought myself a very reasonably priced ROS Krone Big X 580 direct from the manufacturer for this season:rolleyes:....................I decided to sell my Big X1100 and down scale a wee bit.   Besides the 580 looks more modern with its fancy mudguards;D
