Here up north the N7 by far. The engine in the 6 is stretched near it's limit where as the 670 in the N7's rarely give problems and last for many more hours before rebuild. There are larger header clutch, bin extensions, 4 plex hydro & main drive belts on the N7. As far as power, my neighbor has three N7's, one N6, and I have a N7 with many Hyper and other mods and we run them all as hard as the engine will allow in wheat. Horsepower limits our capacity as we have very little rotor or shoe loss. all three machines go very cheap here and you can't match their capacity per $$. If you raise easy threshing crops, I would decide more by the condition of the machine and price than by the size. Like keystone says, I have also seen problems on N6's with the pumps bumped up too much.
