8250/9250 compare to Lexion 750/760
Looking to hear from other people on the Case 8250/9250's. We've been running Lexion's for a while, and love them, but are concerned about no dealer in our area anymore, and thus, lack of service. The primary reason we like them so much is the cutting power. We're able to cut grain that still has some green stalk (overall moisture of 12-15%) with little issue, chop, and spread the stalk that we cut. We prefer to leave about 6-8" of the stalk on the ground, so fairly low. We are irrigated, so we get pretty heavy/thick crop for our area. I need a machine that can handle it.
I'm just curious from those with prior experience how the new Case Axial-Flow's will do in that condition? We've demo'd John Deere combines that could not keep up with the Lexion even though they were the same HP rating. We saw a lot of power decrease in the JD once it got dark, something we didn't see in the Lexion. Will the Case handle it? We haven't been able to get a 9250 to demo yet, so I wanted to ask here.
Thanks in advance! Good luck harvesting if you're still going.
