They are not a case combine dealer in Great Falls. Can T&E not still access the engine if needed?

Not trying to talk you into anything. Mostly just curious.

For me, I would go with case and have gone with case. New Holland looks interesting in wheat country.
I'll have to check out NH. Not sure if they'll have any here, Torgerson's just joined the local NH dealership. Can't imagine they'll sell Case and NH combines.

We can still get T&E out for the engine, but need a Class mechanic for the combine part. T&E can't access the combine, Class can't access the engine. It makes for a cluster because usually they're all related, and to get two mechanics out at the same time is difficult, ha!

We're in pretty thick wheat country. 115 bu+, and running into green straw occasionally.

The case wonít hang with the Lexion in real tough or green.

If your bread and butter was pulses though I always thought the Case would be the easiest on the crop.
Talked to a friend today that is on a farm running 5 9250s cutting red lentils and said they are having big issues chipping/ cracking the lentils. Usually an easy fix but they are getting pretty frustrated.

I’ve been hearing about some big issues with reliability with the 50 series case in general.

There was an assembly issue on the hydrostat. If it was going to give trouble, it would happen in the first three hours.

The latest S Deere should go harder in tough straw than a CaseIH because of the 3 stage rotor cage. The Case is tight all the way thru where as the Deere has more room after the concaves.
I can’t get my head around the tailings issues some have with the Deere. I ran a 690 for a few years and never a problem. Are you guys just looking at the display volume and assuming or actually physically jamming the repeat? To be fair we don’t have the green weed issues some of you have.

Anyway Montana farmer13, I personally would choose a Deere first over the Case for tough stuff. NewHolland over both of them.

I have a suspicion these first 50’s might be like the first batch of black top 8010’s.

Yes had 8010 8230 8240 and 8250. Each Series just gets better. When I had the 8010 I thought I had the world by the nuts lol. Then I got the 8230. Wow. Way better then the 8010 more power better thrashing and so on you know. Then 8240. I thought how can it get better. Well 8250 gets better. The 50 has just as much power as the 40 but has way more capacity when tough going. Bigger drives bigger feeder house faster unload way better transmission And the automation. Who ever put in the values to make automation work did something right for once. lol. We are half done now still have oats canola and soybeans to go.

Hard to beet the lexon in your tough conditions, but tried out all the colors a few years back and case with big hp is pretty dam good, the 50 series I seen has been dialled in and works better than others, we have a lot of green kocha this year and it eats well, the Deere cleaning system is hurting, and there configuration makes it a bottle neck, to stuff tough conditions threw.. Best of all it the rotor reverse on case, from your seat you can be up and running in a minute, allows you to try thought conditions that you would turn away with green

Dealer has a dozen 50s out this year and not many problems with them, good sample from cleaning.. Deere also seams to have new teck working well on sample, just not a rotor belt guy anymore
