I have ran and worked on both easy call get the Axial Flow. We have a 1660 with a specialty rotor, chopper and RWA. Had a 1460 set up the same way before. Don't buy the bs that will leave more wheat, chew up the straw bad, or won't clean the beans. For their capacity I will put them up against anything else. The 20 series Deere machines were alright but the IH rotor has less moving parts and will flat out eat it alive in corn of any moisture or beans in any condition and give a better sample. I actually prefer the old paddle fan myself and have had no trouble with inadequate air flow. If you slow the chopper and drop the bedknife out, it will leave better straw than a walker I think, mostly whole and makes the bales easier to break being crimped more. The 1020 platform is as good as the 900 series Deere and starting with the 900 series IH had the best corn head made, and leaves the stalks chopped down better than the Deere will and are bulletproof. We have a 963 that has been over all our corn acres since 1986 (250-300 acres a year) After working on 40 and 90 series Deere heads at the dealer you couldn't give me one personally. They are better than the massey head we had on our 750 previously but not by much. I don't hate on any brand that doesn't deserve it (except Gleaner) I worked at a Deere dealer for a couple years, worked for a couple guys that ran a Deere combine while in college and at home we have had Axial Flow's since 1986 and Massey's before that back to before self propelled combines. Wouldn't have stayed with rotors this long if they weren't good.

I second eveything you said, Deere sold & hoodwinked everybody with straw walkers & corn heads that made a cornfield look like a bad haircut, then came out with a rotary like they thought they reinvented the wheel. Same old stunt & guys went for it, just like the 2 cyl tractors, looked like a steam engine with spark plugs.
