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.

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.
