I'm not an expert so take it for what it cost you, but I do have both a 3000 and 6000 globe. My 3000 has the same mount as you have currently. The combine will need a bracket I think but cant tell from the picture. The 6000 mount is different and more secure. I had to update my tractor to a new bracket for the 6000. ITC globes are no longer supported by Deere. 3000's are no longer made but last I heard Deere was still selling inventory. The 3000 is a huge improvement over the ITC. Acquisition time is much shorter and accuracy is better even on SF1, which is the free Deere signal. For a sprayer and combine, SF1 should be plenty good. The 6000 globe is even faster to acquire a signal and supposed to be better accuracy yet. My 6000 globe is RTK, so I can't verify that. It does pick up RTK very quickly. For your use, another Starfire ITC would probably work okay. They are cheap, but if you want to upgrade in the future, go with something better.
