Working in Larned Kansas this week and traveled to Great Bend last night for supper. Drove by Straub International there (Case IH dealer). This may not be out of the ordinary for your dealer but from "where I come from" it is. I counted 37 NEW combines sitting on the lot. They were nearly surrounding the facility. Most were 7088's or 8230's and two-thirds of them had a SOLD sign in the windshield. I was impressed.

Pictures are from my blackberry and don't do justice to the overall visual. I called my Dad to tell him about it and he said "How many did you say?". I said you heard me right, 37.

I knew this was custom cutter country. Still quite a sight to see.

Years ago, when BT&I was still only the one store, they had something like 107 JD 9510s and 9610s listed in their ad in the High Plains Journal.

Only about 60 were at the store, the rest were still with the customers (custom cutters)
