I don't know if you are wanting to go from 3 to 2 or 3 to 1 machine. I'll go with what looks like you're indicating 3 to 2 route. Here goes in reference to what you have now. Used to run 3 machines ourselves. We recently bought a new 9760 to replace our two Case IH's and I got to put 100 sep hours on it this fall already. Heres what I have found:

I did some custom combining soybeans (800 ac ) for a local neighbor that has a pair of 9600's. He has 930's and I had 635 on mine. On each quarters, I consisently did 80+ acres with my 9760 to their barely 80 acres with their pair of 9600's. This shows me that the 9760 will do the job of 2 9600's guaranteed. Now, if you were to get a 9650sts for a second machine, you would more than succeed your objective of going from 3 to 2 machines while doing the same job and then some more. We also have a 9650sts and it has more capacity than a 9600. We used to have a 9600 before switching to the 9650sts.

As for going from 3 to 1 machine, I can't really help you there as I cannot tell ya what to do.
