Thanks in advance


The differance is basically the 0 in the number but hp is put up i think. Also i hear feeder chains are different and the monitors are different. But thats really about it.

I have a freind who is becoming a mechanic and he said Honeybee is the heavist header between macdon and honeybee. But it has the nicest cut but the worst transports thos stupid wheels are horrible to take on and off and they always seems to lean to the side with the jack which makes you cringe.

Macdons tires just swing to the back much much easier and i hear they get down lower. But i hear they dont have retractable fingers on the drum and that the drum is smaller then the honeybees. can anytell me if this right as were looking to upgrade our tx66 and draper and would like macdon rather then honeybee due to trasport.

basically this is just what i heard our farm runs a tx66 and an older honeybee draper. but neighbour got one of the 9060 from the first year and had the choice between two monitors he said he wished he would of got the touch screen one much easier to go through.

Re: cr960 v's cr9060

9060 gott 9l engine vs 7,8 in 960
feeder huose is the same, cleaning is the same and the rotors can go upp to 1900 rpm instead of 1450-1600 on a 960
9060 also got the new monitor and som more sensor ex. on PSD belt.
after a season whit both 960 and 9060 i would go whit the 9060 but if you can i would go whit a cr9065 that got even mor power.
i work whit honey bee a year now and they are doing a realy good jobb. hardly any breakdowns so thats what i wuold stay with.
