8900's

Just got a message that two 8900's are running at a farm near by here in North east Germany.
Near is relative, since I am currently in China. So when I am back, the Harvest will probably be over.
Next chance next year...

@don you had that 4-hinge rear axle so far?
What About the size of tires? It said up to 1,65m on the rear. Doesn't this also improve turning radius?

Yes, still 4 link axle.
They are 710/65R30, that maths out to 1.685 so same thing.
I do not know if that would help turn, hope so.
I think the increased wheel camber is allowing a slight increase in turning angle to just look at it.

That is a pretty big back tire which is great to see. Don does yours have rear wheel drive as well?

Yes, 4WD.
I use 4WD as a power shift for hills but the entire hydraulic and hydrostatic system is changed, maybe don’t need it just for hills.

BTW, no brake application for gear changes or 4WD engage anymore just sitting still for gears, powershift to 4WD, no 4WD standby anymore.

They missed chopper adjustments but pretty good otherwise, the rotor cover animation shows why a Claas is so good in canola.

I saw enough Mercedes engines in bush equipment and a grand Cherokee I own. Very good engine until you need parts. I remember 15 yrs ago an $1800 alternator stopped production and availability was almost non existant. When I bought my Grand Cherokee the selling feature was the Mercedes 3.0. So light and efficient. Until the oil cooler sprung a leak which takes a light yr to get at under all the junk sitting on top of the engine. How exactly can you call an oil cooler a cooler with placing it in the valley of the engine on top with a glowing shielded in turbo 8" away. Turbo had some issues as well, and for no reason other than a poor design keeping the heat trapped.

While we’re bitching it sounds like you have to buy unlocks for yield mapping now from Claas! So not only your unlocking your display you have to unlock the combine. Sell the combine and buddy has a different company’s display? No problem he can buy an unlock too!
Correct on header recognition, own headers only.

Not just yield, auto steer giving us gas too!

Just be thankful that equipment MFG haven't done the software thing (Yet). Nearly every productivity software is moving to the yearly subscription plan --ie you can't buy it, we "rent" it to you for a year. AutoCad, Adobe... I'm sure Windows would love to follow suite. How soon do you think some company is going to try to charge a yearly "service fee" to unlock operation of your combine/tractor,etc?? Just like with CAD software, the big users (GM, Ford, JDetc) are going to be happy, the small guy won't be able to afford it.

Wouldn't that be fun..."Oh, your tractor died on you out turning around on the highway while mowing roads? So sorry, your subscription expired and we shut it off. Would you like to pay the $10,000 yearly subscription fee now or later?" I can guarantee you some of the bean counters have suggested this in company meetings...."so wonderful, guaranteed yearly income, so much better for everybody, lower initial costs, blah blah..."

Everybody except the small user (ie farmer) who doesn't use it everyday and just wants his old program/combine to keep running.

Don, when you get a chance....

Choose "Front Attachment/Parameters" The first line is Type....try setting some different parameters (widths/sensitivities/drop rate) up in different "Types" ---and see what happens when you switch types! Does it change your parameters to those previously set, or is it just a "dumb" setting?

I totally forgot to do this when I was looking at the 8800. Been kicking myself all over the floor
