Yield Monitor 8780XP

Just traded the 8560 for a 8780XP and would like to have a yield monitor some day. Is there anywhere to get used units if so what is recommended? Don't have any experience with these but I would have a hard time justifying a new unit. We run a ez guide 250 for fertilizer, planting wheat ex.... but pretty green on the side of things.

Have a friend with the MF Agco yield monitor in a 9795.
Its brain has given trouble twice now.
Original brain unit obsolete.
Needs a complete change over to the updated unit complete with sensors and god knows what else.
Its major bucks like $6500 or something he was saying.
So I'm not sure what luck you would have with OEM stuff.


I made a bit of mistake here.
It was friends challenger combine that the yield monitor gave trouble.
670 model I think?
It is fairly similar to 8780xp more so than MF 9795.
