How much will a 96 model 9400 combine with a 918 flex header with 650 sep. hours on it bring at auction? I currently run a 1420 IH with 3600 hours and am looking to upgrade. The 9400 is in Nebraska if that makes a difference.
By the way, they are excellent machines, if a walker works for you. We ran a 1994 9400 for five years and 1400 hours with no downtime, and now have a 9410 with 2000 hours. Wheat, milo and soybeans. They worked good for us. Total acreage cut each year averaged around 1,600. They don't make them for us small farmers anymore.
According to agriculture.com the combine brought $80,500 and the 918 brought $7,800. Those numbers are within $3,000 of what we paid for a new 9400 and 922 in 1994. Not often we see used combines (even with low hours) bringing close to new price at their age.
Everything seems to be tight where they both mount but are wearing on each. It wore the crank assembly on the top completely off ? I wouldn't think they should even touch each other? Did take belt off to see if the back would turn freely even with the top out but turned very hard by hand . DID...
