Take the feeder and shove it in the designers ass! Not sure about the NH ones as I know access sucks. The feeder needs to be narrower and it needs a better design to drive the rock beater and chain. The NH might solve this but not sure.
The cones shape needs to be redesigned!
The unloading auger is a joke! Needs to be updated to go faster with a better drive system.
The engine needs to be turned to be straight with the combine, this would cut costs and make serviceability much easier!
Did someone mention a candle upgrade?
Hopper visibility is has to be delt with one of these days! Come on CNH!
A heating grid light?
How about a way to tell the Kunt in the corner that as an operator that I am not an idiot! Trust me that I noticed the feeder is plugged or the hopper is 3/4 full, the flashing lights alert the cart driver. I hate listening to all of its crap about overload and so on, when I drive a combine I want to use all of it.
Take the 24V setup and shove it, nothing worse than a combine that starts for **** in the cold and you can't hardly boost it either, and then it has no heating grid light? Stupid
How about a weight loss program? Like while your redoing the feeder bring it closer to the combine to better balance it.
The machine access needs to be seriously looked at, they are very dirty combines and take for ever to clean.
Take a serious look at shoe air flow problems.
I'm going to stop before they need to biuld a whole new chassis
You seem to have a major beef with these machines. I haven't seen not one positive comment from you on them, in quite a few posts about them.
I don't bleed CNH red, just wondering about your logic here on a few items...............
feeder: it's nice and long, and simple. Why narrower? It currently Allows great visibility of the front and ability to clear gate posts.............I have zero exp with a stone trap model.
Cone: ???? What's wrong here. I know two 8010's that have original cones @ 2500 & 2800 sep hrs. One needs doing now.
Auger: what's more simple than one chain on the early models? It's fast enough.
I used the long folding auger this year. It's fast. And very very long.
Leaves other brands for dead when you want to CTF.
Who else has the ability to shut off the grain tank augers? NH?
Engine: get your measuring tape and check from the radiator to the CVT gearcase. Then measure from the rotor gearbox, the way you think the engine should be..............then picture the height the motor would have to be...........crazy. How does that reduce costs??? Then still need to 90deg drive the rest of the separator components.
It would have to be one of the most easily accessible engine bays out there. Pretty tight between the grain bin yes, but there's no need to go in there.
Weight: how do you make it lighter without losing chassis strength. There's plenty that get around in the rice paddys mud over here with out much trouble. Shorter feeder = better balance?????
It's pretty hard to get the back wheels off the ground now, even with the current length feeder. Clarify balance..
Accessibility: have you changed concaves on a JD? How can the flagship not be the most accessible? I have pulled internals on ALL the other brands, many a time. You could play cricket inside on the grain pan it's so open and accessible. Concaves and grates are 100% easier to change than the heritage.........yes, the rear end is dirty but I consider the rest easy to clean
Air Flow: Iam yet to see a problem here. Maybe Slo-mo cameras would show something. The only problem I see is uneven loading of material. Completely due to cage not being levelled and centred............ Personally experienced this problem this season.
Lights, overload, plugging, 3/4 full, bloke in corner??:
I don't understand any of that post..............???
Please clarify some or all of the above.
