We have about 400 hours on 2009 9870 about 200 on each header, On the 9870 I had one spreader motor go out, Trouble with scavenger pumps getting oil back to main gearcase on extended road trips [20 plus miles], 635D had communication problems with combine in Float mode, Belts went bad mainly from ground contact because of communication problems, Bearings went out on inside belt roller on right side, 612 has fluted rolls no chopper head. performed flawlessly.
I had a really sorry crop worst ever. capacity was not an issue. Corn 0-110 bu. Wheat 0-50 bu. [mostly around 5bu.] Soybeans 10-40 bu.
Service was Excellent both from CP equipment and Deere helping them on pumps. We were never completely down over 2 hours. We limped and worried more about scavenger pumps but Deere never quit til they found Solution.

Sorry to hear about the crop, but glad you had excellent service. Service really makes or breaks the way you feel about a piece of equipment.

Re: 9870-635D-612

Same thing here, constant problems with our new machines. Quality control has gone out the window it seems, our 2008 models were much better. We have four 9870s with 615 pickups. hole in the fuel tank, broken concave motors, missing AC vent in cab, poor quality GS2 brackets, leaky air bag on 615, AHH not working properly, coolant hose kinked resulting in a 20L fluid lost, broken rotor speed sensor, EGR valve failure, constant problems with manufacturing debris in fuel tank plugging fuel filters, and error codes coming up on command centre. Were at about 100hrs right now and service from the dealer has been great. Seems like the factory needs a little more employee training or something. On another note, has anybody noticed they changed the feed acc belt from a double to a triple belt? Therefore is can handle much more product and in turn now plugs the discharge beater which was never a problem in the past.

Rear discharge beater plugging in our area, has only occured on 9870's not 9770's. (green stemmed canola) Well that was last year. Not too many have turned a wheel this year. Just got started cutting canola.
The grates/pan under the rear beater is different on 98's.

The rear beater on the 08 9870 is less aggressive than the beater on the 9770s. Not really sure why though. The beater on the new 09 9870 looks like it should work quite a bit better but havent had a chance to test it out just yet. We had also plugged the rear beater 5 times last year in peas and canola. Everytime it plugged it was either after midnight or first bit in the morning. Not a fun job at all thats for sure. Seemed to be a 3 hr job between 2 guys. I started a thread on the 9870 rear beater plugging just over a year ago if you wanted more info on that. We also had plastic thread from the fuel tank make its way into the fuel line as well. Frustrating with those codes coming up on a new machine.

Iam very happy with the Machine and the service. My previous machine had many problems and the company could of cared less, but thats why its a green one now. If you been down that road you feel very fortunate to have this few of problems.
