715 combine unloading auger extension

8 posts in this topic

Last fall we bought a 870 hr. 715 Diesel combine. We ended up putting a 17.5' 1020 grain head on it. Also put a 4x4 rear axle on it. But now we need

to find a unloading auger extension to get taller to get over our trucks. The manual says a extension of 2' or 3' (can't remember which length)

was a option. Was there any ever sold?

Thanks' Kevin

I also remember seeing that option in the book. Tried to find one and think the parts are NLA. It's disappointing because the 715 is just too short to dump in even a regular wagon with wet corn by the time in piles up. I took my boot off the end and put a piece of rubber around the end for a deflector like a 1460 has to get by.

I've never been around any 715's, but, isn't that way too much header width for a 715?

Of course, I suppose it depends on what type of crop you are harvesting and how slow your forward speed is.

Dang that is one low houred 715. Would be neat to see pics.

No luck with an IH dealer to get on the locator to find a dealer that might have one with an inch of dust on it, would be worth a try, If not worthington ag parts might be able to help you.

I would think any good farm shop could make an extension pretty easy.

you just gotta be careful my neighbour had one on his 1480 and he found the system underpowered to move the grain that much more and he could feel the auger pull the combine over a little bit due to the extra lenghth and weight

You might have to beef up the inside tank so you don't push the auger out the bottom end.

I ran a 715 with a 17.5 grain table and 4 row corn header for 25 yrs and it had the long auger and the extension was all on the end of the tube of mine. it never gave a minutes trouble. Took it out once to hard surface it due to it unloading slower than when it was newer and it sure helped
