Hey Don, where is your 780 actually gone? Will there be a customized Don Boles signature model at an auction soon? Or is it gone back to Claas for further analysis after your long-term field test?

It found a new home NW of Edmonton, 350 km ish from its old home.
Hope it serves the owner as good as the last one.

Don, does the rotor pan extend all the way back to the chopper, under #11 and 12 rotor grate? If so, I would assume you can't visually inspect the rotor pan for grain.

Correct, pan extended to (almost) chopper.
Well, there is a door above the rear axle where you can look in and sorta see the pan, it’s not great though. I think there is another door further forward but haven’t checked it out.

Just read in op manual where you can shut off auto brake, maybe a decent kill stall can be done now.

Taking the quick change small grain and APS concaves home today, round bar in for peas.
Note the big one is pushed right to the front gate, just fits in the glorified grocery hauler F-150 box.

I was standing beside a new 8800, so I asked if it was for sale. They said a gentleman named Don Boles owned it. I said I knew him and should take a picture of my little boy driving it and send it to him...lol.

I decided I better not touch what I couldn’t buy, so I jumped in my tractor and took my fixed heavy harrows home.

Silly person, calling me a gentleman.
That shop would be in a handy location for you.

See, that's where you are a better man than me. I would have jumped in the seat and had a big fart, just so I could say I got to before he did!!!!! lol

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!

They go for the clear shot at satellites with that mount location, only takes about a minute for full RTK after unfolding hopper covers, receiver upside down in hopper when folded.
Probably helps with the 6000 receivers two week RTK memory after 15 minutes in contact.

Im not sure i would want the SF6000 hanging upside down all the time unless the covers are completely sealed from rain? Color change on the pickup head looks like an afterthought. Still can't figure out why Claas can't get some proper lighting integrated into the cab roof, those Grote Trilliant lights just look like an afterthought, or maybe you added them?
