  1. Anyone else working on theirs?

    have some beans that are about 2 weeks away. not really anything urgent my 2366 needs that i know of. i need to change the concaves and i was going to change the top sieve(did bottom before wheat) but i burned my arm and have been out of action so i didn't bother ordering it. going to try and change the concaves myself next week but if i can't i guess i'll just get a tech to come out and do it. my 1020 head did need some gearbox seals changed but again i can't do it so it'll have to wait. it's not leaking very much anyway so it'll just be a winter job. everything is turning earlier this year and most crops don't look very good so i'm thinking it'll be a pretty quick harvest
  2. Need Help Figuring Out What to Do

    you could find a magnum for that budget. as for MFWD vs 2WD and how well they ride, the bigger front tires tend to absorb bumps better so it is more comfortable but they can also get bouncy at times. really i think a CVT would be ideal for you but you'd have to at least double your budget for that

    didn't do any of it myself but had the rad rebuilt last year and was charged 10 hours labor.
  4. 7120 magnum

    i get mine charged every year. problem with the accumulators is that if they slowly lose pressure the shifting also slowly gets worse and just never notice because it's not a sudden change. really wish they would have added a sensor for those things. you can't really check them yourself as simply checking them will cause them to lose enough pressure that they need recharged. also the new ones don't even have a regular tire valve anymore and require a special tool
  5. 7120 magnum

    nah even with both empty it'd still move but shifts pretty rough
  6. 2388 What's this Brkt for?

    **** here all you need to is blue skies and they send out severe storm warnings. heard the drought has been pretty bad out there tho. it's just starting to kick in here and hitting corn fairly hard but most beans still look ok as for the bracket my best guess would be a camera but it looks a bit too big for that and also not really in the right position or at least not where i'd want to have a camera mounted
  7. paint

    don't think so, all other paint brands are the same price as the have been for years. only new environmental laws passed lately is the carbon tax which isn't anywhere near high enough to double the price on anything
  8. paint

    yeah i really don't understand why they jacked up prices so much. we always pay more for everything up here but not THAT much more. i thought $15 per can was already kinda pricey but reasonable and they go and do this. i'm really not all that surprised tho, i compare prices quite a bit and CIH seems to love gouging Canadians.
  9. paint

    I believe it was a Canadian only increase. Checked several dealers in the area and all are now $30 a can. Supposedly it's also $500 for a gallon now. It's also all CIH paint not just specific colors. Couple of dealers outright stopped carrying it due to the increase I see JD makes some CIH colors so might check them out. Most of my equipment is pretty faded so it doesn't really matter if it matches perfectly but it'd be nice to get close
  10. paint

    anyone know of anything aftermarket for CIH colors? i like to keep a few spray cans around for touch ups and such but this year they doubled the price and it's now $30 a can which is unacceptable. i'll paint everything green before i pay that ridiculous price
  11. Diesel in oil on my 806

    better off fixing it. even if it does seal up in warm weather it's on borrowed time and you'll just be pissing away money on oil, money that could have been used to fix the issue
  12. 72XX Magnum weights

    Yep, those are the same as the ones on my 7240. Also yes it holds 18
  13. 3pt hitch 7250

    my 7240 does that occasionally then will suddenly start working again. no idea what causes it but i've noticed it happens far less if i set the limiter dial about 90% of all the way up
  14. part time farmer

    really depends how hard you're working it. most will just run full throttle all the time but if you don't actually need the power you're just pissing away fuel. most of what i pull is undersized so i tend to run around 80%-90% throttle
  15. Battery cover for magnums

    guess that means up here case wants at least $200 for that(likely closer to $300) they really are getting insane with their prices.
