Lexion 780 vs 760 capacity

Just curious if anyone has ran a 760 beside a 780 for capacity test.

In big straw and tough conditions I could see 780's with the extra HP having a bit more capacity.

If everything works out I may be able to test a 760 beside a 780 in irrigated wheat, but wondering if anyone else has some test data on them.

Reason I am asking is just for fun I was pricing out the 2 and there is quite a price difference between them for 67hp rated gain?

I am not sure the power will make as much difference as the faster rotors and increased rotor grates. In wheat we usually have too much rotor loss before we even come close to maxing out the power.

Which is only on the 780.

Didn't know that about the faster rotors and more grates on the 780 only.

The prices of these machines however are becoming pretty unrealistic. $7 durum/wheat, 16 cent lentils, 26 cent chickpeas, $6.50 peas, drought affected $11 canola, then look at new combine prices. My calculator just went into error mode.

Seems like the manufactures still think its 2012.

I would think that the 780 with 20% wider body/cylinder/sieve than the 760 would equate to quite a bit more capacity.

I think the rotors are the only notable difference. I have lots of experience with what that does for capacity and in cereals I bet just buying a couple gearboxes and swapping them out would net you more increase than the extra HP....and for a lot less $$$(even though those gearboxes are stupid expensive). I really only use my full HP on the 780 early or late in the day when straw is really tough, might use it in green stem soybeans this year. Often running at 60-70% power this year though. 760 burns less DEF for sure. I think both if a TT model get the big hopper.

Tough call, 760 is still a big combine but if in a lot of cereal crops I would want the high speed rotors one way or another.

They are exactly the same except the engine.

Rotors are NOT the same.

I stand corrected. I guess when I looked it up the specs were for the UK models.
