2013 s670?

As some of you already know, we have been looking to upgrade combines. We have been presented with a 2013 S670 with 1200 eng hrs and 850 sep hrs. What do we need to be aware of other than to stay away from all 2012 S series models? Is 2013 model year also another year to stay away from too? Looking to replace a 2003 9750 STS with bullet rotor. TIA

I wouldn't say stay away from 2012's, just a few differences, so the chaffer is single zone (most have already been upgraded) and the feed accelerator has a few more wings in it.. I don't see any deal breakers.. oh yea, and there is a rubber cab mount upgrade, still no biggie. As long as you consider those upgrades into the price.

Currently we run 2-2013 S670s, have about 1000 hrs on them green light every year and so far no surprises. Seem to be very good and reliable combines, definitively would recommend them and are very nice to operate.

I have a 2012 S680..dual zone chaffer upgrade. I havent heard about the cab mount change. What is that all about? Its been very great for the two years I've had it.

Going from 9750sts to S670? You will likely enjoy that no matter what year you find. The changes are good to be aware of.

I don't think they changed the cab mounts, seems to me JD dealer told me they added some extra floor insulation in the 2013 models?

Yes, extra floor insulation and change the cab mounts from polyurathane back to rubber.

Intersting. Was that covered as a JD PIP or is that at owners cost?
