For the price of one new you could probably get 2 decent 2010 500series, load them up with Sunnybrooks , 2 40 ft fd75 macdon, take good care of them, and u'd be set for awhile, and further ahead combine capacity wise... Imo the combines that do the most are the ones tat stay in the feild longest and steadiest, even if they go a little slower

A gallon an acre sound about right with my old 9790 with the cummins and R62 as well. Trying to impress the neighbors has never been important to me. They are all getting old and the mennonites knocking on the door to rent or buy their land has been the new talk of coffee row. How much an acre they can get from them is the new talk. They have moved in and the pockets are deep. They will take over here eventually like they do most places. No horse and buggies here. These mennies roll with all used but fairly decent iron. Some new.
When I was looking at buying a 1year old combine, I was looking at 780's and 760s lexion. Not one did over 3400 acres and the average would of been around 3000. Most of the combines came from multi unit farms. I was just surprised some people put so few acres on a machine like that in a year.

Where Iím at the crops are (usually) heavy enough and weather shitty enough thatís all the time you safely get!

My side by side comparison this year with a s780 and 750 showed a $5 bill/acre at best in canola. Which definitely adds up but is it enough? I havenít gotten a quote from Claas yet so I donít know the price diff between the two, but if itís close to what guys here are seeing Iíd barely get that back.

I Agree itís very hard to justify these new combine prices. Theyíve doubled in the past 5 years and some of the crops I grow are worth half.

My last trade was $313 a separator hour all in with interest and everything accounted for, we were averaging just a smidge under 20 acres an hour on the previous set. This takes into account a repair credit as I don’t have to fix the set I traded and have one year of warranty where I shouldn’t have to fix much of anything. The trade was for same model to same model other than one 780tt without Cemos, while rest were 760tt with cemos so I called them close to a wash. I didn’t factor any money in for the upgrades in the new machine, the anti plug system and the rotor covers being the most important to me.

This deal also made my previous set work out to $140 a separator hour, something I did not predict happening at all when we first bought lexions. Largely a function of the dollar losing value. In previous years the deals they offered for trading were laughable, often $500-600 a seperator bout. This year it seems the value of used stuff is finally catching up to where in should be in relation to new. Still a ton of money. I don’t know how I would justify it if there wasn’t atleast 4000 acres to do per machine.

We could not get under 3 bu at 3 mph with a s790 last year was identical as our 690s. Dealer had all there guys out then a group from factory was out for over a week it rained a half inch and they came to see us all excited they had a test at 1.9 bpa out the back. Trust me we tried hard to make the green ones work so did they. There simple but lack threshing and separating area and adjustability to control both separately

They did get it to throw out less when they dropped Pan 50 feet into swath and I had to argue that 200 feet or more is needed and that was there combine specialist. Complete retard

Scotty. The Claas 750 you are interested in will be very comparably priced to the s780 Deere I am guessing.
When you go up to wide body Claas 760 or Claas 780 the price really jumps.

Curious if anybody looked at weight specs for these new combines, i find its an easy way to see what kind of metal/quality the machine is made of. Be interesting to see as i know on the 500 series combines you may have paid more for the machine new vs other brands but there is also a lot more metal that comes with the purchase. Not so much an issue if yiu trade every year or two but if you want to keep the machine around for a while it makes a difference.

Iím just glad rich people have problems too!! Just joking but when I have the problem whether to buy an s780 or 780tt it will probably be 2040 or so. By then we will see which one stands the test of time.
