I'm looking at a new combine for next year. I don't have prices from the dealer yet. Is there any reason to buy a 9770 over a 9670 other than factory power settings? The cost savings between the two should just about buy a new engine if there is a problem down the line.

The only other choice is a 7120. No other brands have any service anywhere around here.

Kinze, if you skip the pro drive it reduces the list price of the 9770 by about $6500. I have never needed to shift my 9600 or 9650 in the field, so I will skip the pro drive (unless someone can persuade me why it has value).

A 96 is a great machine but a little weak at times for a 12 row head. My main problem is the elevator not being big enough which causes grain to fall into the fan. However I'd rather go 3-4mph than 6-7. There ARE difference other than hp.

Comparing them visually there is a difference. The 96 has a 78bu/min elevator while the 97 has a 100bu/min. I can see a difference in person and have been told by many. I'm sure someone else on here can show you a link??

It does say in the new sales brochure the 97 has a larger clean grain capacity than the 96. Larger augers and a faster elevator.

The self leveling sieves are optional for the 97, but not available for the 96.

They need to change there sales brouchers then because by looking at them the only difference is hp. Also pretty much every where else I have looked has led me to believe this too. This is the first place I have seen that told the differences.

I agree that it should be clearly stated, i was led to belive it was only the horsepower and after all the disscusion we went with a 9670 and have it chipped 20%, running a 612C at 4 mph fairly flat land 200bushel corn, and a big top graintank. works pretty well

Have the 9.0 liter engine, tried the TS Performace didnt work at all, then tried a Bully dog one and that threw codes also, Currently using a Agricultural performace chip, have it turned up all the way to 20% and wish there was more lol, but very happy with it.
