Ya I've heard that story before. Ours were timed every possible way. Kudos to you for keeping one for over 2500 hours.

Well after a long talk with the guy Madks hooked him up with my buddy bought one ( he wasn't scared off ) I haven't had time to sit down with him for any length of time but the header clutch was a problem area . They found very little difference taking off the chain that rotates the concave , easy access to most of the machine , concaves adjusted from outside , but sounded like all in all a decent machine once figured out " like most " if you are willing to live without some of what we feel are normal options .

Every farm is different. Crops grown etc can make the difference of where a combine does well. Also the area you live. Where I live it is usually hard harvesting 50% of the time. Lots of straw and wet ground or tough straw. A combine here has to have a tough drive train. Some hills and the ability to push mud day after day some yrs will show drive train failures quick. Gleaners have never had an issue in the drive train area. I purchased my 9790 MF because they share the same drivetrain. Piles of new Deere from big farmers with 7 combines playing in the mud have jumped ship to lexion. One by Hudson bay has done this and one north of melfort I heard as well. Nothing more fun than fixing a combine in the mud near the frame with diff blown out. Tracks installed on combines like these weren't that weren't designed for it fail. When an excavator is required to remove your 4wd and grain cart from the field being stuck you know your wet. Many have never seen conditions like this. Over here it's a reality some yrs. Had my gleaner driving from one piece to another I couldnt get grain truck to. I didn,t have a grain cart at the time and crossing a run loaded the 6 th time I buried it to the header fully raised. Backhoe to dig the mud out behind the header so I didnt tear it in 2 getting it out was in order. Had to drive the grain truck into this muck hole hard so I could unload the grain tank and pull the grain truck out after. The stuff I have had to endure the last 30 yrs of farming would make most people cringe.
