Think of trading combines, curently have 9510 would like to get a little bigger combine. Was wondering if a 9560sts has much more capacity the my 9510 or should I look at a 9650sts. a 9660sts is maybe a little out of my price range.

Tell us more about your conditions.
Where are you?
What crops are you cutting?
How many acres of each?

To answer your question, yes, a 9560 STS would have more capacity and be more productive in most conditions if you are cutting clean and dry corn , wheat and soybeans in the US midwest.

Be more specific.

In small grains (canola, wheat, barley) a 9610 and a 9650STS are almost the same during the day the STS pulled away a bit but the 9610 caught up at night.

600 acres of corn 100-180bu/acre, 500 acres soybeans 45-60 bu/acre, 500acres of wheat 60-90bu/acre. Live in SE S Dakota. Run a 925 flex head and a 6 row 30 corn head. Most years the crop is dry when its time to harvest. We do put up about 20,000 Bu of high moisture corn. Beans are always 11-9 moisture when combining.

Cusher,

There a couple older threads in the JD section that will give you some of the feedback you are looking for. Scroll down to page 7, a thread titled "9560 STS bullet rotor" last post Nov 7, 07; on page 13 a thread titled "9560 STS" last post Feb 21, 07. You can also do a search and get all the posts that mention a 9560.

It would appear the 9560 sts is a good replacement machine for a 9510, will give you a little more capacity at reasonable cost.
