I know were you are coming from, im an Oliver guy to and I was lucky enough to come across a nice 525 for cheap. Anyhow, I have experience with 3300 and 6600 Deeres. They arent bad machines. The 6600 can be a pain in the a$$ to work on depending on what needs fixed, but all around a good solid 6 row machine. If you do go 00 look for a gear drive, the hydros can get pricy to fix if there is a problem, and the gear drive units are just about bullet proof. Parts arent aproblem at all, Deere still supports them pretty good and what they dont supply, the after market has picked up.

A friend of mine ran a 7700 up until the 2011 season. Upgraded to a 9500. According to him, some 33/44/66/7700 parts were beginning to be NLA. Personally, from watching him they seem awful hard to work on, if there was any dealers support reasonably close I would look at a Gleaner or an older IH axial flow.

We've had a 4400, 6620, 7720, and now a 9650 on our farm. The 4400 was a nice little combine, but it gets stuck pretty easily and runs out of power. It's fine for a small operation, but I would go with a 6620. They're easier to get parts for, have a lot more power and capacity, and has a much better cab to keep bean dust out of your lungs.
