Default CR 9080 vs JD 9870

We are thinking about going from 2 9600 John Deeres to running 1 larger machine. Currently we run 930 JD straight heads on about 4500 acres of wheat, barley, canola, sunflowers and some soybeans. We have priced a 2010 9080 and a 2010 9870, both with around 250 sep hrs. We are looking at a 40' Macdon Flex draper for either combine. The 9080 is looking cheaper in price, but waiting on final numbers on the 9870. I would appreciate any experiences anyone has had with the machines and how they compare side by side in the real world. I have heard alot of good things about the 9080. and seen more of them in North Cental ND. thanks

The 9080 is a bigger unit so you would be getting more bang for your buck! All units are relatively equal in durability now a days IMO.

We run 9080's and the only big issue was a faulty sound board on one that inevitably lead to further damage...unfortunately. I guess you could say we figured out the sound board was not working the hard way
No biggy, got a 9090 replacement while it was being repaired on warrenty.

How would you rate the 9090 vs 9080 RM?
Friend of mine moved to two 9090's from 9080's for this year.

What do you mean by durability ? warranty period? one season ? 600hrs 2000hrs?

Kurt.
I was meaning the amount of breakdowns in one season from one color to the next is relatively equal now. I don't see any other new combine broke down more than us and we are not broke down more then them. Combines now adays are not like they used to be years ago when you would were constantly heading back to the yard for repairs.

This is of coarse assuming they are maintained properly

Don, tough year to do comparisons...I operated the 9090 and I don't think I got any more done in a day then the 9080's. However, you are not very productive when you are stuck...or trying not to get stuck...or sitting on a hill waiving a white flag

It was about 10 to 15% bigger in the odd time where we got to make the machines work. At the end of the season we concluded that we should have gotten 9090's instead of 9080's given the price difference that we were offered. I guess we will decide after this season.

I gotta ask, what was the spred between the 80 and 90?
Bigger IS ALWAYS better

Default Deere 9870 vs CR9080 Performance

I currently own a 9080 w/ 40' Macdon Header. Did a little custom work this fall where there was a JD 9870 w/ 40' Macdon Header. In a heavy tough wheat crop the NH ran approx. 30% faster. In canola, only about 10% faster because we couldn't get it up the feeder house in either combine. That's it in a nutshell, used to have a chipped 9760 sts prior to CR9080. Deere just doesn't have the horsepower to compete.

You know, I wouldn't have guessed it that way, when I ran a 9860 and a CR9070 together in 07 I would say in tough crop the Deere had a slight edge but in canola the CR was ahead due to a better shoe.
I realize your talking 9080, so that's a bit different, but I can't see 30%.

As to feederhouse I just thought of something, is the feederhouse the same width on the 9090 as 70/80?
I know the the rotors are bigger.
