John Deere S670 vs S680?

We’re looking at upgrading combines in the next couple years and looking at our options. We’ve narrowed it down to JD S670 and S680. We’d like the machine to be close to 10 years old with less than or right at 2000 eng hours. We’ll be running 8 row corn head and 40’ grain platform.
