I am near Shelby MT and have a 9650 walker for sale with 936D header. Header has an ag shield pea auger installed. Spent around $16,000 this winter on it at the dealer just to help sell it by making sure the buyer knows it is ready to go. So, more ready than from a dealer. Trust me on this one. I used to be a tech at a dealer. New walkers, new feeder chain, some belts, chopper knives, ect ect.. Shoot me an offer. It has been an excellent combine. Just need bigger. I cut around 3500-4000 of my own and help my dad if possible. I bought an 8120 case and do not need to keep this one. I have trouble finding enough good help as it is.
If you know Brandon Flynn near the Townsend area feel free to ask about me. We went to college together.
For a 9610 things to check. Run it for 1/2 hr of so. Just let it sit and run. Check for noises, vibrations, cracks, hot bearings, anything that seems strange. There are some plugs for engine timing and turning on the flywheel housing. Pull a plug and check for oil. I have pulled many engines because of rear seal leaks on 9600 and 9610s. Look at grain tank from below looking for holes. They wear and rust. Wheel bearings, spindle bearings... Check all oil levels and check for leaks. You will want the larger lift cylinders for 36ft draper header. (Mine has them) That many hours it can have any problem really. Better have it inspected by a good tech. Worth the paying $500 or so just to do this before you buy it.
