    Nice crop this year esp for the drought weve had

    I think it’s going to be that way most everywhere! For how dry my area was, the beans never stopped growing, the corn never uncurled, but somehow we are looking at potentially 40 bpa beans or better, and 150 bpa corn or better.  The way we looked in July, I would have said 10 bpa beans, and 50 bpa corn.  
    The dirt in between the rows, is still soft and mellow like the field cultivator just went through it yesterday, makes me wonder how tough that will make bean harvest? Normally the rain pounds the ground firm and has a layer of crust, but no rain, still have fluffy dirt. 

  2. If we had anything worth a dang in my area for a truck wash, I’d probably use it! I’m kinda getting tired of 3-4 hours a week getting wet feet, washing my truck and trailer! But keeping it clean definitely takes the tough scrubbing work away.  The brush just glides over the surface if kept up with, might have to try hiring the nephews?! 🤔

      Planter tractor has a 700 so I have some familiarity.

    You should have no problem getting familiar with your combine then.  There are a lot of settings in that monitor that you wouldn’t think though! With fall approaching in my area of MN, beans turning, it’s time to get familiar with the monitor in the 8010 again!

    If you figure it out let me know pete.  I am jumping from the 2001 2366 we bought new to a 7230 I bought last winter but still don’t have.  First different combine in 22 years is going to be some kinda learning curve! 

    We went from a 2366 to an 8010, but had good dealer support to start the first day of harvest with.  The machine is basically the same, but easier to use, the monitor is a little more intense, but with dealer support and YouTube videos it’s not bad getting used to it.

  6. They really aren’t that bad, I was nervous when we got our 8010, but it’s just another combine.  I agree with jass1660, get familiar with the monitor, and if you don’t have good dealer support, anything you need you should be able to find on YouTube.  I’ve gotten out of a few binds thanks to the tube!!

    Yeah, it would....but I also keep it attached to the 15' flexwing AND the ROPS might be an issue (unless you can get high openings?)



    Yes they make bigger tarp building’s, they will of course cost more the bigger you get, but you could always drive the tractor in, and leave the mower out.

  8. Would like to get to Rollag some day, but not this year again! It’s Labor Day weekend, and I have a lot of labor to celebrate!! 
    Worked on the shop floor yesterday for 8 hours, wash the truck and trailer this morning before the heat sets in, finish resealing a pipe on the septic tank at the shop today, and then hopefully get a tractor finished and out of the other shop.  The list grows longer every day!!

    . Is it me or is time speeding up?

    I'm going with my wife. Hope everyone has a great time!



    Enjoy the show Rick!! Stay hydrated!! 

  9. Amazing how fast things can go from good to bad! A small local concrete company just lost an employee this week.  They were going to move an old wash plant, and instead of bringing in a boom truck to pull the hopper off, they thought they could get it with the loader.  I’m not sure exactly what happened, but as the hopper was being lifted off, something went wrong, there’s been talk of a pin falling out, or being pulled out of some piece that shouldn’t have been pulled, or fallen out, but as the pin came out some part shifted and crushed a 45 year old.  Sad deal!

    When you say rotate the mount bracket are you removing 2 of the 3 bracket to transmission mounting bolts and rotating it on the third bolt? Also, is there a torque spec for the pressure plate to flywheel bolts? It took some digging in the manual to find the flywheel to crankshaft spec of 123 ft-lbs but I can't find any spec for the pressure plate bolts. The I&T manual just says to reverse removal steps. 

    If they are 3/8 grade 5 bolts, 35 ft lbs is the go to torque spec I use

  11. The NH 166 inverter is ok, but it doesn’t like big thick windrows, I made a few haystacks with ours over the years when we were still putting up hay.  The chute doesn’t extend far enough past the belt in my opinion, allowing hay to bunch up trying to make the corner.  Maybe they have made things better since we had ours?

    A guy down here used to pull a good running 1466 in the farm stock class.  Just before he quit pulling, he put an intercooler in place of the fuel tank.  Makes me think that might be what this guy did.

    My first thought was inter cooler as well, but with the hoses going to the rear of the tractor, I’m not sure what those hoses do?

    It's definitely coming out of the bottom of the air dryer.

    After the purge of air, does it continue leaking out of the purge valve? If so then I’d say the purge valve is bad right out of the box, or not installed correctly.  

  14. It just seems like a governor problem even though you said you already replaced it, try another one.  I’ve had a bad one out of the box once.  
    Every time I’ve ever had air governor issues, it’s like you are saying, system builds up pressure, purges, drops to the cut in pressure, rapid air pressure increase, hits the high cutout, and purge, and repeat the process.  All happening in a short period of time.

    Previous comments mention the TA. I don't know exactly what I am looking for, but I have over looked it if any lever or knob for a TA function is present.

    You have a TA delete tractor, so you don’t have to worry about a TA.  You have just a straight 8 speed.  
    If only 3 gallons of hydraulic oil are all you got out of that system, he was not using it, that maybe the reason it was parked? My dad just bought an 826 and it only had 10 gallons in it, and it had cavitation, hard jerky steering and TA wouldn’t stay locked in direct drive, so 3 gallons, it wouldn’t function.

    So I have had 8-10 demonstrators and all of them had numbers written on them in the exact same spot.  Mr. Updike told me he believed it was line build numbers as they were being built at the plant.  

    Line build numbers, so would that indicate how many were built per day, or per week possibly?
