We have a Sunnybrook and a non Sunnybrook cylinder running side by side in every field. I would agree there is no vibration differences between the two in the three years of running them.
Seems to be a little confusion here Orly.
(For those old enough to remember the famous Orly Dunstan of the 70ís Pepsi challenge commercials)
Canít account for the lack of observational difference, itís night and day for me. Period. No Pepsi/Coke difference for me.
And the smoother a unit runs the more likely it is to get run properly.
At least with the 8800 the higher the feed rate the quieter it gets, no longer hampered by a noisy feeder chain.
Even the air moved by an empty cylinder is noisier with this larger cylinder.
You are going to love the Climate system. I had good luck with it, I feel like the ap does need some work in a few areas though. At times we had trouble with it wanting to switch the crop to corn on us and change the head with randomly as well. I was also suprised how well it worked to sync multiple combines together. It really is a game changer for us. I am curious to hear your feedback on it.
Don, I have seen the climate screen shot with multiple machines show a better yield (more green) for one machine, but the actual yield figure (create a region, select a pass, etc...) be better for the other machine. They have some issues work out on the climate setup. Honestly don't know why some of those things take so long, but it is convenient.
Just what I needed, more learning curve material!
The days of nonexistent or sloppy moisture and yield calibration days are over, big brother (Mark) is watching!
It does gather lots of info not previously gathered by mapping systems and when combined with the Libra cart weights data Iím sure Mark will be able to utilize it to max advantage.
By cracky, two or three more harvest days and I may have it somewhat figured out!
Ok ,I’ll ask the question. Don how does through put compare, stockish 8800 green meanie vrs full sunnybrook yellow 780? All new paint bells and whistles aside , sheer throughput to beeper? Could you in your old 780 stay ahead of one of your helpers in the 8800?
Or better yet, will it let you see more than the straw chopper of a New Holland????!!!!
It's easy enough to be pleasant, when life goes by like a song. But the man worth while, is the man with a smile, when everything goes dead wrong! To view links or images in signatures your post count must be 10 or greater. You currently have 0 posts.
Hi Don, how is the vertical unloading auger holding up. Around here on two new combines the flighting came loose due to poor welding and had to be fixed.
No sign on that, you mean the flighting in hopper, at the top or bottom?
Did set to the highest gate setting, hole 6 on both augers, sitting unloaded 13,000 kg peas in just under 80 seconds.
Also used the 1/2 speed setting (just one tank auger runs) for a cart top up, that is really slick!
The hopper first shutoff of tank auger(s) and subsequent vertical and cart fill auger emptying also is neat and all automatic. Urgent shut down down by holding on/off button down.

No wheat, canola, flax or swathes yet so way too early for any blanket statement.
However, in peas when everything is dry it works excellent and without doubt has significantly higher capacity.
But as soon the straw gets either greener or tougher that pleasantness disappears, feed rate can be cut by 1/2, the vibration and noise and potential fear of plugging challenges my brevity. Which takes very little as I get older!
Under those exact conditions the full spec SB 780 while not likely much faster would be operated with much higher confidence.
But overall I wouldnít want my 780 back as a gift, the massive improvements made everywhere you look make it worth the annoyances I have to put up with this season but know I can fix.
