Double ll, since nobody replied, I'll give you some insight on this. As far as differences, here are some specs. between the 2. A 1979 model 1480 would have a 190HP DT-436 engine, if its still original, the 1680 would have a 225HP DTI-466 engine. Grain tank, rotor size would be the same on both(either could be a standard rotor or specialty rotor, although the specialty wasn't really offered much until the 1600 Series), cleaning system would be about the same as well. The 1480 would have mechanical hydraulic control instead of electric-over-hydraulics on the 1680. EOH units have the controls arranged a little nicer,easier, in my opinion. The 1600 would have a feeder house reverser(not many 14s have them) which comes in handy; the 1600 have a concave extension, allowing more concave area. The 16s also have a better shaft monitoring system than the early 14s did, also probably has a grain loss monitor that the 14 don't have. 16s have better cab lighting.
