Yes. There was a cr970 running up here in the Banks oregon area last year. The owner liked it so well, he traded up for a cr9070 for this year. Problem occured while harvesting crimson clover. A mechanical failure that is under warranty is being repaired right now at the dealer. Should have it back and in the field soon. Thankfully the owner has a tx to run for now till the cr gets back.
The owners run several crops including both crimson and red clovers, tall fescue, and perennial ryegrass. Some grains too. They would'nt trade the NH twin rotor for the world, and I dont blame them. I went on a TR research trip to Madras oregon this past spring and would dearly love to find a TR 97,98,99 to purchase. However they seem to draw a premium in the specialty seed regions and after seeing the machine inside and out, (litterally) I can see why. So that set me to looking at gleaner as well. Gleaner's more affordable for me.
I'll try my best to get some pics of the local CR if I can. If you are ever down in this area, Madras oregon has a huge variety of specialty seeds that they harvest with a combine, and you have to look really hard to find any other color.
As you mentioned, the hp is not so important as is the cleaning capacity and ability. The owner of the cr has lots of steep terrain. The twin rotor has a huge advantage here. You have a seperate rotor for each half of the machine, which will lessen any imperfections in cleaning load by half over a single rotor. The twin tailing returns are also one of the greatest things to happen to the seed industry. The TR dont have twin returns, but then it also sends the tailings back to where they are supposed to go, front of the rotor, instead of powering a "rethresher".
Cant answer directly the question of capacity comparing the CR/TR, but for the money difference, the TR is one heck of a bargain. Just relaying something I was told by the folks that run lots of specialty seeds with the TRs, the 95 and 96s dont feed as well and should be avoided somewhat if possible for the seed threshing. I understand this is because of the feeder design and size which allows one rotor to be favored in tough stemmed crops. ?
