Need an unbiased opinion on this one, so please keep your color preference to yourself. Our farm has been a long time green supporter, well until I've come into the mix this past year. I prefer to look at the numbers and not the color of a machine (except yellow and silver). The JD dealer has offered me a '09 9770 and the Case dealer a '09 8120, both at the same dollar figure. Mr.JD is telling me that a 9770 will run with the 8120 (8010), just wondering if they are talking from their rear, because I look at the specs and the red one looks like a lot more machine for the money. I should say that we farm in Northern Canada and do combine in tough conditions (HRS wheat, canola, dry field peas, barley, oats). After looking at both machines up close, the 8120 does look a lot simpler and less to go wrong. One plus of the JD is that we've always had amazing service and parts availability from them and the case would be a little uncharted water for us (dealer seems to be good). Just wondering if anyone has a comment or two on are our situation.
