915 Combine

5 posts in this topic

I've been helping my friends out with their 915 and this is the first year it will be harvesting soy beans. Previously its only harvested corn. They got a 820 flex head for it and are wondering about the setup on the head and what will need to be done on the combine. On a side note we just got a Mud Hog rear wheel assist put on last night. I'd appreciate any advice and tips you guys may have. Thanks

On the feeder house tip the front plate ahead we would put ours in the last hole. This really helps to cut close to the ground. There are 1/2 inch bolts at the bottom that are easy to miss if you don't know about them. Tim

Does the combine have the automatic header height control on it? Dad's 76 model 815 had that, seems like there was several adjustments that had to be made to the header lift control valve detent and the hydraulic couplers down on the side of the combine behind the right hand drive wheel in order to cut beans. We had a rigid head though, never had a flex head. They were relatively new to the industry back then.

If you don't have an owners manual, get one!! It shows how to set your header height and hyd coupler valves assuming you have a low profile. The 820 will work good on there. I wouldn't plan on breaking the land speed record with a 20' head on a 915, but if they are dry, they will run through pretty good. If you have green stem, well then God help you!!!!! and be sure you take your cylinder wrench with you. :lol:
