Shelbourne Reynolds Lexion Adapter

Looking at a 2009 CVS 32 Shelbourne Reynolds. It is in need of repairs. Has headsight sensors but no headsight monitor. It also is missing the header monitor. Not sure what combine it was used with, but we are looking to use it on a Lexion 470 or a 500 series. There also does not seem to be an adapter plate, but I think we could make something work on our own with that. We were quoted by a dealer that it would cost over $9000 USD for all the parts to switch it to a Lexion; $4000 of that is for a hydraulic adapter. The cost includes gearbox gears and the adapter plate as well. Does this seem accurate? If so we will pass on the header even though it looked like a good deal. Also, is the in cab monitor absolutely necessary?
Thanks for any help. I did search the site for this type of thing, and found lots of info; just wondering if anyone had more i

Yes that would be right.
The Lexion Hyd adaptors are very very expensive. That figure is correct. The window frame (adaptor for feeder house) is also pricey, as would be the gears to change the ratio.
Shelbourne stuff is usually right up there in price with the best of them.

You need the cab monitor to be able to change the vari speed rotor belt. You could just wire a on/off/on switch into the actuator that adjusts the belt.

You won't know if the table auger jams without the cab monitor. By the time you probably here it, you will have buggered the rattle clutch and probably set the front on fire inside the big panel.

I wouldn't run without the cab monitor.

Quite possible the stripper rotor drive sheave is worn out, unless it's had the updated steel bushes, and the last owner greased it daily. The spline that joins the two rotors might also be going going .............nearly gone...........

You need someone who knows strippers to have a look with you.


Square box........
Round pizza.......
Triangle pieces....

Iam confused......

Cost are correct--maybe even a bit low! ANY head going on a Lexion needs the Multilink, and hydraulic valves mounted on the head for the functions. Lexion is unique in that in supplies Pressure and Tank to the head, and has all the valves on the head.
At Headsight, we have Multilink and valve packages for some head adaptions...costs often run in the $5-7000 range just for the electronics/hydraulics! Mostly because the Lexion valve parts are $$$$.
This head may have been on a JD. Some JD machines need no AHHC interface. OR...it may have had Headsight's Horizon system on it, where we use a "header App" on a VT capable monitor (JD 2630, CNH Pro 700, etc) to do all the AHHC and Header functions instead of the Shelbourne in cab controller.

Thanks

Thanks for the info all. The reason I don't have much info on it is because it was insured and suffered a total loss. Looks like the farmer hit a fence post and bent the fingers back in one spot, along with the shroud being bent. He must have kept the adapter plate and monitor and just finished with a different head. So we have no way of contacting the owner for any more info on its condition. If it could cost 10K just to use it with a Lexion, plus extra for whatever repairs, it's probably not worth the risk at the price. Shucks, I really wanted a stripper header to go with our disc drill; residue has been getting a bit out of control lately.

My suggestion would be keep looking. They are a precision piece of machinery and any balance/bent issues with the rotor is absolutely unacceptable. Our has a grease hole in it and a bit of wheat gets inside over time. A small handful it all it takes to make that thing shake.

Run away like the little gingerbread man from this one.

Well at least now I know what to look for in one for the future. Unfortunately there are probably not a lot of used ones around us set up for a Lexion, and I don't see us ever buying a new one. Maybe we just need to look to buy a combine to match instead
