    She was letting me know that the hopper was about empty in the combine.

    10 am Friday I had my 2.5 hours of work in and was headed home.  10:15 Forman 5 hours away calls and says the machine that was supposed to be here next Monday,  was sitting at the yard office.... So, back to work I went. Blew a hose 2 hours in, then again at 1830 Friday. quick 3 hour round trip to Bloomington and back Saturday morning I was up and going by 1100, went till dark.  Started at 0800 Sunday and was out of fuel by 1600 so I called it good enough. So far I've put 20 hours on the machine, We've got it at work all week, needs to get run hard for what it costs to rent!!!!

    325 Cat with hi-rail gear and a Fecon forestry mulcher. Biggest tree I've taken down so far is a 12" poplar.



    Sneak it over my way, I have some tree lines you can start on!!

    My wife faced this in 2004. In 2021, endometrial cancer ( 3 days after our 50th anniversary ), earlier this year, brain tumor surgery, now chemo for stomach cancer. We are doing fine. Some people are needing assistance more than others. 

    Prayers coming your way as well!!🙏🏻

    Looks like you got a decent new project to keep you out of trouble.   If you need a parts rig, this one is north of me an hour.   


    That’s only 25 miles from me!

  5. Thank you for the update Steve, and mainly Zach!! It is great to hear that things are still moving in the right direction, maybe not as fast as one hopes, but still forward progress!  Continued prayers for you, and your family from MN!!🙏🏻

  6. We just bought an 07 CaseIH 8010, and I’m looking for the brackets the mount that hood the gps receiver, on the front grain tank extension.  Need parts 1-3, would prefer the used route if possible?!IMG_4798.thumb.png.5d3c529c6659a4a9640bbb500214d488.png


    I’ve tried Worthington Ag parts, and All State with no luck, sent SDman a pm, and now putting it out here to see if anyone might know of anything before I have to buy new.

    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.

  8. 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.

  12. 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.
