My dad and I finally are going to bite the bullet and bury our old 860 Massey. Been a great combine but things are wearing out that really shouldn't (or can't) be replaced. I am semi color blind. Most of our equipment is green, however I have a few friends who swear by their red cement mixers ( all big farmers). I looked a new Case IH over a little but really don't know what I'm looking at (only know walker machines). We farm 1500 acres (corn, wheat soys). Don't think I can afford new but would like a machine with 1000 hrs or less. Can anyone give me a little advice? Especially those of you who have had both JD and Case? What machine would you recommend?
