Sounds like there are ALOT of corn/soybean/wheat guys here which is what the big companies build combines for. My situation is a little different, our main crop is Alfalfa Seed, traditionally Axial flow style machines have not worked well in this application and conventional walker style combines have dominated the A. Seed market. Up until last year that is when Deere decided to stop making walker machines, now I hear that they may be starting back up again? I don't know for sure. Anyway the 9600/9610 machines have done a really poor job of delivering a clean seed sample ever since they were introduced mostly due to the poor "quad" fan design and all the dead spots it creates. The 9500/10 has always done a better job most due to the same fan capacity as the 96's with one less walker. We have been looking at both the JD STS and the Case IH 7 and 8010 series. Does any one have any experience with rotories and tough thrashing crops like A. Seed?
