Have your local dealer run the serial number and they can print off what the combine came with from factory.

What i am saying is that I have the build sheets. The build sheets do not show AHHC or auto reel speed on the 2015 models. The dealers claim the machines have it.

On the 2014 machines the build sheets say AHHC, but not auto reel speed, though those dealers also claim it.

Im wondering what options were standard and in what years, so I know if its not on the build sheet because its standard, or if the salesmen are incorrect.

Those are fairly loaded up, right to side window blinds.
The do have the heavy duty feeder drive that you likely need for a 12 row chopping corn head.

What is a rework kit, maize to grain? 0019?

No clue. Because its separate from the deeptooth/frogmouth sieves, and thats all I was aware of thats different corn/small grains, other than concaves. They almost all have that though

Those two combines don't show lateral tilt as an option, I would make for darn sure that you have that or you will be stuck running a Macdon and no lateral tilt on the corn header. I would think they all would have auto-height, but you need the lateral tilt to use flex heads. Dealer here tends to cheap out and just sell the feeder house optioned down with a Macdon head, so those units are floating around. I wouldn't pen myself in like that though...

Thanks. Ill request a pic of the feederhouse faceplate tilted. There would be a lot of unhappy mailboxes if i went back to a fixed feederhouse.

The 14 does, I’m sure the very first line
Auto- Contour Cutterbar adjustment

Is that.

Need that 40 km road speed on wide body!

Yeah that sounds like code for lateral tilt.

You could get by with a non-variable speed feeder drive for the 12 row non-chopping, we use one with a Claas 12 row chopping head but it does lead to some more maintenance on the feeder bearings and need all cast pulleys. The non variable speed is simpler and doesn't have the crazy expensive slip clutch that the variable speed does, only a major problem in swathed canola with piles I am told. If you are straight cutting everything it may never be a concern. I would lean toward variable speed myself because of the 12 row chopping next time.

What I don't understand is why there is all this extra junk on mew machinery that we never seem to use and then functional stuff that limits a machine's adaptability and resale is optional??? More of a factor on tractors I suppose with all the electronic nonsense for running implements, but why wouldn't you put the best lights possible on a machine or why shouldn't it be capable of running any header that even the same company makes?
