We have been in the market looking for a 95 series combine. We want reliability #1 . We farm 2500 acres 50/50 corn and beans usually 150bu corn and 50 bu soybeans. run a 6 row head and 25ft bean head. Ive been looking at 9550,9560 and 9570's. I was just wanting to get your thoughts and opinions on what you think.

depending on how much you wanted to spend, i would go with a late 60 or a 70 series. we had late model 9560 sts and really liked it.

Stay away from the 50 series. Can be very troublesome when a they clock a few hours up. 60's have been very good for us, haven't done much with the 70's yet but so far so good.

Be a little more clear, just be cautious of the 50 series STS machines as they have been updated with gussetts etc in weaker areas, the 50 series Walkers are great machines, just as the 10 & 00 series before them.

We've had good luck with the 50 series walker machines, now the STS had it's major growing pains in the 50 series STS's but we still have a lot of them around running around here, so I guess it's all personal preference but what isn't today

If you address the know problem areas of a 50 series before they give trouble, they can good machines with decent value, especially the later ones.

I can't imagine 2500 acres of fall crops with a 95XX machine. Your harvest weather window must be huge with no chance of a season ending weather event. A 9770 would be the smallest machine I would consider for that many dollars of crop at risk.

thanks for all the responses i just got back from up north so either a 50 series walker or a 60/70 sts. our harvest window is small but a 95xx series will do the job we dont need a huge combine and having it run at full capacity 10% of the time rather have a 95xx and run it full capacity 90% of the time
