Anyway, back to the original post. I think a 9770 IS the best combine Deere has built. The auction values speak for themselves. I do believe there was a 2011 9770 that sold on Auctiontime last week for $190,000 USD. It had 560-ish sep hours, 2wd, and had a straw spreader. So it had nothing special for options and really in theory should've sold closer to 200 with a chopper. By comparison S680s are selling regularly for 210-240k usd with similar hours.
