Just wondering if anyone on here is running these machines. I hear lots of talk about the CRs. we have demoed the CR in the past and wasn't overly impressed with it, mainly with the rock protection, or lack their off. The local dealer still has a piece of the rock that went threw the combine on his desk, glad he was running it.

I am wondering how the capacity compares between the CR and CX, what the grain quality is like, how hard are they to set in crops like canola, hard threshing two row barley and Wheat, How are they to maintain and how does the straw chopper compare to the CRs.

Thanks guys.

I have 2 years on a cx 8070. I love the machine. That being said, i haven't harvested wheat with it yet. I have only run grass seed, orchard grass, annual ryegrass, tall fescue , and perennial ryegrass. I don't think you'll find a better straw chopper. very nice machine to operate. Terrible times have hit us or else I would have another one and get rid of 2 2188s. Yes it will come real close to replacing 2 of them. I f we can get through these trying times unscathed I will have another one. This area used to be dominated by Deere. Lots of yellow running now and several who want to switch as soon a s possible.

We ran 880's for years. Pretty reliable good chopper, great stone trap. Unfortunatly that's where the good ends couldn't even come close to running to power due to losses in most crops. Plug way to easy in canola and if you speed it up cracks to much. Will not save barley any better than a 9600 probably worse. I would recomend the smallest version as power is not the limiting factor on the machine. Losses is what made us eventually change to another brand. The cr will save grain a lot better.

hey I`ve run this year on a cx 8060 in holland and it`s a great machine!! the moisture here is a lot more then at your place at least I think the moisture there is around the 16 till 20% and you noticed nothing the engine spins like a little kittycat and the machine is still going on.
very high capacity for this kind of machine

Worse than a JD 9600 in barley? You'd have to have left the clean grain door and the stone pan open to be worse than a 9600. My TX with a sunnybrook cylinder picks up 42 feet at 4-5mph with very little loss so can't see a CX being worse.
