05 with all the up grades including monitors. Had 3 1688 for 14 years that ran as well as you could expect. We kept them up and they still look like new. Some one will get some great machines

I wish you good luck you will probably need it. I had a 2003 it was junk fires break downs poor feeding etc. I bought a 2005 it was suppose to have bugs worked out first year it was down about 9 days, This year it is about 1300 acres behind a 9860 we got from Sloan's because of breakdowns. it did put together a 2 day streak before we got rained out. the Deere had a flat that we could not get fixed on Sunday so it did gain a day. There is no difference in capacity in 100-150 bushel corn on these machines. maybe in heavy corn the extra cleaning on 8010 would shine. but if it is waiting on parts it doesn't matter what it has. If you have a dealer that has sold a bunch of them maybe he has parts and knowledge to keep you going. wish you well!!!

We're using the dealers demo unit and it will not feed any twisted or lodged crop. Definately the limiting factor. Ours fed not bad but it is totally stipped and getting rebuilt at the dealer.
