I'm looking to buy a 9660sts and it has a 35 foot hydra flex front...are they any good and how much better would a draper front be in wheat (since its the main crop l harvest ) ?

I agree, if you have the means, go with a draper. They just feed the combine so much better and you can harvest until the combine can't handle the tough straw at night instead of stopping because the header won't feed anymore. If you grow big oat crops a draper is a must. The downside of a draper is the combine does seem to burn more fuel carrying around that big heavy header. I would look at MacDon or Honeybee first. If you care why I say this, I won't hold back. I run two Deere STS's and one Deere 630D header and one Honeybee SP30.
