I have to study to run a combine

Recommended Posts

Last fall I sold my 2388 and bought a 9120 that's in pretty good shape.  So I'm new to the flagships and wow is there allot that I'm not familiar with.  Tonight's project is change the engine oil.  I'm thinking I should have my 14 year old son run it as h he's more computer savvy then I am.  I like the idea of a bigger machine as I can get more done in less hours I have to run.  

Beens I had to get a different corn head I opted for a 12 row head.  I've got 2 1,000 bushel grain carts to keep the corn away from this monster.  

If anyone has any pointers hand them out cause there's allot to learn.

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!!

I had a pro 600 in my 2388 so it's similar in ways but it was set up as a universal because it was just a yield monitor.  This one controls everything, I think it'll make chicken noodle soup if I find it in the menu!

9120s were/still are good machines. 13L engine with no DEF. Autosteer?

Would advise you to check your fan hub on the engine. If its the style with the snap ring holding the entire fan onto the fan hub, I would advise you to update it with the style that used a bolt/washer to hold it on. The update is expensive, but replacing all the radiators/coolers is expensive.

Chopper bearings updated to newer style?

Is the auto street integrated or the little wheel on the steering wheel yet?  I don't have anything on the steering column so I don't think it does.

Autosteer operation on 20 series depended on software version. If yours is all updated, it should work as follows:

1. Push the rocker switch for autosteer a couple seconds...you should hear a beep acknowledging your press....that turns the autosteer system on.

2. Somewhere on your Pro600 you should have a spot for guidance engagement...it should give you a message "move wheel", prompting you to move the steering wheel. There's a sensor at the bottom of the steering column that needs to see movement of the steering wheel...verifies that an operator is present. Once it sees steering wheel movement...you're ready to go.

Now, during field operation, you should be able to use the "resume" button to raise/lower the header, and then double-tap the "shift" button on the backside of the MFH lever to engage the autosteer system.

For displays, the yellow guys want more than one Pro700, so they provide 2 in them.

Dad and I help a friend with wheat harvest and he has a 2588 and a 7130. There are several differences. Dad went from the 25 to the 71 and likes it. I run the 25. Both are good machines. 
 

Having met SDman at RPRU this summer and reading about his knowledge here on the forum in past years I’d say he’s a great resource for help on running Axial-Flow machines if you have one. A stand up guy with a lot of knowledge!

Yes I do have the auto steer and it does seem to work just playing in the yard.  By the time I figure half of this I'll be done and have to relearn for the next year.

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.

I was having difficulties with the bean head Friday so I stopped at the dealer and they came down Saturday morning.  I learned more in the hour or so that he was here then I did reading the book.  Like the gearbox in the rear of the motor didn't show oil on the dipstick.  He said yeah, here's the truck remove the dipstick and let sit for 30 seconds then check it.  It was right on full mark, must trap air in the tube and not let oil on the stick.  The graph on the monitor to check sensors is nice if figure it out.  I told my son he had to pay attention with me cause he likes computers and I like old school mechanical things.

Absolutely correct about the PTO gearbox as far as checking the oil. A couple other things about the gearbox in reference to checking oil. First thing, there is a breather/vent for the gearbox.....should be right underneath the muffler on a 9120.....keep that clean or replace it...its a common breather used on many CNH applications. Second thing, wait at least 15 minutes after you shut the machine off before you check the dipstick. It takes awhile to let all the oil in that gearbox return to the sump.

While you are playing around with that thing.....MAKE SURE it comes out of PARK EVERY TIME you use the rocker switch. The touch pad circuit board on those old cab combines can fail.....leaving you unable to get it out of park at the most inopportune time.

  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!
