stay away from the bullet-grinder! there are some major problems with these machines damaging grain in our parts. no problem with the old rotor it works great! less losses and less damage and more capacity! there is alot of people looking at red if deere don't fix the problem with there bullet.

its one of 2 things geenjunk. a feeding problem in the front of the rotor or the rasps on the elements, causing the grinding. our old 9760 out performs our new 9770 hands down in all crops especially in higher moisture corn and less field losses in wheat. beans ok but what won't thrash them!

I would not be scared of the Bullet. In this country it handles tough straw better than a standard rotor and complains less when the sun goes down. In harder threshing crops the standard rotor may have a small edge on threshing capacity. I would personally never spend the 10g to upgrade to a Bullet but it's no less desireable in these parts.

Travis, your best option is to buy the standard rotor machine and install the PF Parts element kit.
