I just figure I would aim to trade at 2500sep hours. So subtract actual unit hours from 2500, then purchase price (or purchase price with interest) divided by those hours. So the use cost with $0 value at trade-in time. I havent gotten far enough to factor residual value, but its probably not really needed since with a baseline of 2500 at sale date, all units are close to the same value. That way im comparing apples to apples.

The true cost would subtract the trade value, say $40,000-70000. But its just as easy for me to use zero since its not a number for budgetting, just comparison.

Obviously this doesnt include any other expenses that come with owning any combine.

Theres one local to me thats both in my price range, and in my hour range, but after running the numbers I realised it would cost me $195/hr of use comepared to all those $118-150. Its eye opening and a big help for me to look at it from multiple angles so I dont make a move that seems okay but hurts me down the line.

The 2013 780 came with dynamic cooling and def. The 13-14 780 with the Mercedes are easy to get the def deleted on.
The rest of the combines got dynamic cooling in 14'.

The 760s have the mercedes too right? I missed my chance on a couple 780s recently.

Theres one or two 13 750s on tractorhouse that claim pre-14 dynamic cooling. I didnt know if thats just an early 14, or if they had a very short production of dynamic cooling and no emissions.

If it's an IT4 engine it should have dynamic cooling and emissions. never heard of the pre 14' dynamic cooling but anything is possible.

Lexions w/o Autocontour are out there....just VERY rare. I've seen one -- a 500 series -- in western Canade. IDK if the 700s ever had it as optional.

I'd be VERY careful about bringing a combine over...make absolutely certain that you have all the red tape about emissions dealt with before you do. I've never tried, but I hear stories. Talk to somebody who does it first.

Tell your dealer to stop having such a "big head" ;> 45' is huge, even out west. Too much stress--on the operator! I'd definitely go for the high torque variable speed drive if you are combining corn--the other drives are just not heavy enough. Sounds like you are putting together a pretty nice combo!

AHHC specialist

You mean if you have feeder tilt cylinders it’s auto contour?
I’ve seen the odd machine without those, just fixed.
All are AHH though?

Ive narrowed it down to a couple of machines, however im having issues with the build sheets. Any 13-14 that ive been sent build sheets on that have AHHC say it right in the first line:

Auto contour:Cutterbar adjustment

The two that suit me best are both 15 models. Each dealer claims they have AHHC and auto reel speed, but neither build sheet mentions it anywhere. Did this become standard in 15 and thus not on the sheet?

Both dealers seem honest, but ive learned my lesson on taking a salesmans word for something 1000mi away. It could be an honest mistake and you still have no recourse.

It’s almost always an honest mistake, farmers, especially owner/operators, use and study that equipment to use to their maximum advantage.
Sales people sell equipment.

Oh, I don’t mean just Claas sales people, I mean all of them.
