Re: Cat/Lexion 585R rice harvester

From what I've heard (keep in mind I work for their competitor), when they run, Cats are the cat's meow. No pun intended
But, a competent dealer (service side) is hard to come by. Parts frequently have a serious supply problem, mostly because a lack of parts depots and dealers.

585R site:newagtalk.com - Google Search

If you've got a good strong service dealer with parts inventory, it'd probably be a good machine.

Go ARMY!

Re: Cat/Lexion 585R rice harvester

the dealer near by seems to have a lot of the parts on hand. but the machine is only a year old and hasnt needed much. my boss wants to swap out the 25' header for a 30 footer. with rice thats dry and standing i dont think it would have much of a problem. of course it all depends on the ground speed you want to run.

what dealer are you going through? and i have heard from some of the service guys that if you put a lot of hours in them one year you have to put a lot of time and money in on servicing them in the winter, but they also said they cut close to 15 loads a day
