Local custom cutter had 8,100 on the engine and 7,000 on the separator. Those are the most I have actually seen, but I am sure there are higher.

9600's were a very good combine. I have seen plenty still going with 6000+ seperator hours. Sure they don't have the capacity of todays combines, but I bet you won't see any of todays combines still running with 6000+ hours on them, no matter the color.

I know a local custom cutter that has 9500 hours on the sep. Of course he also has a 9650 sts with 4500 hours on the sep. too.

The ones I have seen in the 7,000-8,000 hour range are 93-95 models. Figuring in the cost of maintenance, that's still a pretty cheap combine to own.

I worked on a 93 that was a custom cutters. The machine had a few hours over 9800. Customer said that was the third new tach put on the machine so he didn't know the real hours he was guessing around 14K. HE said he had put the sheet metal above the concave in 4 times. I went out to the service call for a no start complaint. Guy had about 15psi cylinder pressure. The machine was done.
