we switched from a 9600 to a 9650sts and found that the capacity is much more.... we are able to go atleast half to a full mile per hour faster in canola, wheat. and up to 2 miles per hour faster on lentils... I am very, very, very impressed with this machine!

if your talkin both walkers there is a difference in capacity. 50 has more horsepower if you get the later common rail 8.1. and they all have larger clean grain elevators.

If you harvest any milo, don't think about a 9650STS. It is about 3/4 the size of a walker in milo. And if you install the beater speed up kit in the walker, it gets 10-20% bigger yet in milo.

I agree with you bent our 9650 walker does a better job in milo with a cleaner sample in milo compare to our 9660sts. Right now in this wet corn it is beating the sts.

yup i agree i run a 10 and a 50sts side by side and in wet milo they are about the same, in dry milo the 10 walks away with a chip on it

That is the only bad thing I can think of on a rotary.... they dont like tuff straw.... they are the best during the day in dry conditions, but when the sun sets you do slow down a bit

I can't see that being true in wet straw. I have several customers that have an STS and a walker and this year, being as tough as it was, They would've rather had 2 walker machines. Some of the walkers were modded (cylinder, beater, chipped) and they showed the rotors how it was done day after day.
