Trying to decide on a new combine. The 9570 and the 9610 have similar horsepower. I can not find the seperator area on the seives on the 9610. What do you guys think. This will be the 2010 model year with the self leveling chaffer.

that shouldnt even be a hard decision. Brand new combine over a 10 year old or so machine? I don't know the numbers, but I would bet the 9570 has more capacity especially with the self leveling seives. 8 row corn head at 4-5 mph. 30ft bean head at 3-4 mph. Bin extension to hold 300+ bushels. New machine, warranty, easy decision.

I almost bought a 9570. I first found that there wasn't as much of an aftermarket extended hopper options as there was the other models. I then found that JD put a 6,000lb+ rotor in what is basically a walker frame and that there was a few people having the hoppers breaking behind the cab. JD supposedly has a reinforcement brace available for this area. JD stopped making the 94XX and has now made the 95XX the "value" combine.
I bought a 9670 instead.

If your going to be putting an extension on it, I personally would feel safer with the 9610.

IIRC, self leveling sieves are standard on 9870 and option ($6000+) on 9770. Not available on 9670 or 9570.

Interesting. I have a 3 week old quote here for a '10 9770 that lists code 3515, SLS automatic self leveling shoe with general purpose adjustable chaffer and bottom sieve, and carries a list price of $6,721.00
