We thrown pans under our 9870 and came to conclusion the 3/4 percent more dockage wasnt worth throwing 4 bushels out the back for. Always furiates me not being able to set it perfect in canola. But when switching to beans and corn its all forgotten already

Your only harvesting wheat,canola & barley
Nothing if you don't need it. It is double the maintenance and operation costs. Obviously, you pulled in an extra 250k without it. I would question the need for it.

There may be other places to save time/money in your operation, like solar grain driers, autonomous grain carts, etc.

Or you can hold the money in other investments until you actually need it to buy a new combine.
