My neighbour has a 570R, we have a 470R with a chip, montana kit, variable speed rotors, and all-winged chopper knives.
It easily walks from that 570R... We farm just under 3000 acres, our 470R did 2089 of that this year (We also have an MF 8570) in under 200 hours.
I'd say you could save quite a bit of money if you went for a 470r/480r. Not much for improvements in the 500s till the very last models. No problem baling straw behind them either.
