Looking like I might be in the market for a combine.

Current options ( due to budget and whats available ) are 570+ or a 570C don't want to go wider than 7.5m header, ideally Vario just in case I get OSR to grow in the future.

Your thoughts please

Few questions
Budget?
Acreage?
Crops?

570s were superb but will have a bit of age to them now.
Age, 15 years of service is ok£50-65k
Acreage either 400 on my own or 800 with another, but then around the area and not ring fenced with an hour between farms.
Crops, W Wheat, S Wheat, W Barley, OSR, S Beans dabbling with S Oats and S Linseed this year
 
Spreads full width with bigger headers without it they tend to stripe,buisness pack means you get yield mapping telemetry and returns monitoring as standard were options on a c

I think a c will have a smaller tank as well. It may not have 3D sieves as standard either. My neighbor had a c and they had 3D put on when the bought it secondhand

I’m sure a 570 is a grand combine but being a rotary they are able to get more crop through them and are driven fairly hard which causes wear. For 800 acres a Walker Lexion would easily cope and probably be in better condition as they are driven to Walker losses and no faster. A 6 Walker would be wider on the road though

A 6 Walker on 800's is very wide on the road:censored:.
Think carefully about where you need to travel before you buy one...
What he needs then is a 6 Walker on tracks 😉.
