There some other threads from a while ago on this you may find informative. It seemed all relative to the size of the operations. When you have 2000-5000 acres to spread costs over, One or Multiple newer combines worked. Lots of guys in the $20-30 acre is what I remember.

We own a 20+ year old combine on our "small" operation. We budget for fuel, repairs, depreciation, etc. around $25/acre for us...

We have gotten by with "knock on wood" minimal repairs the last couple years, but stuck 20k into it over the couple years before that. I spread those big repairs out a few years into the budget. Right or wrong...
