    Hey Tiger, Mark here in Minnesota.

    Do you have high hour 585R machines? Mine has about 1800 seperator hours and I have had two pretty serious bearing failures that have caused fires. One was the tensioner pulley up behind the clean grain elevator, the other was on the cylinder variable speed pulley. Caused fire in the chaff over the rotor housings. What is your preventative maintenance program, do you replace bearings before failure or do you inspect bearings frequently.

    How is your reliability, mine has been pretty bad this year. It was inspected by a cat dealer before season start. I am starting to wonder though if we are doing something wrong.
