Torriem our late model FD 70 has the torque wrench and stainless steel pan like the 75. I am not sure what years had this. Our 2008 FD 70 definitely did not have it.

Thank you for that reply.
I am aware that the updates are done and complete or as I have told by Case IH
But that is interesting about the angle of the Face Plate.
We have a 5130 machine...all be it the smallest of the Case fleet it is a carbon foot print to the 6130, 7130. But nonetheless it may have a variable we have not yet configured.
Thank you again.

Yeah you are correct. Our 08 FD 70 also did not have it. Was a welcome improvement on the newer headers.

The last mcdon I had was a 2014 fd 75 purchased new. I had the mcdon guys themselves set the thing in the field. I even purchased headsight for it to try to run a little higher off the ground on beans. I have some very hilly and rocky land, but it gets rolled. I cut half of an 80acre field at a 30 degree angle to seeding and only did every other pass. On the roughly 40 acres, I picked up 20 plus rocks in the trap, and broke 2 guards and 3 sections. I then demoed a 3162 to do the rest of the field. I averaged 1.2 bu per acre more, no broken sections or guards, and not one rock! Plus I averaged 11 acres per hour more. The Mcdon is a superior head in small grains, but in beans the case wins hands down. I now push a case around

I like the Macdon heads. I think they work good.

Thanks Chaddermd
Those details are important as we too have some similar terrain, rocks etc to deal with.
Greatly appreciated.

Any luck with the 3162? Did the dealer figure out what was wrong with it?

3162 issues continue

Thanks for asking.
Today I met with the dealer and district service manager.
This is what we discussed...

They (Case IH) know there is an issue with the "Series 1" 3162 head with the center flex area being heavier than the out flex areas.

Their answer on the new models is the installation of air bag as an assist and they say it works great. (Unfortunately they said at the time of purchase our new draper head will shave the beans to perfection. "NOT!!!"

I inquired about that method being adapted onto our model.
Case said they could "make it work". As you would expect.... that does not sit well with me.
After that comment I went into the mode of.... The head never worked right since we bought it and still has warranty.
We just want it to perform as advertised.
Honestly getting pretty frustrated about the whole deal.

On top of it, the dealer wants nothing to do with our head for trading reasons and for good reason.

I will say this.... St. Joseph Equipment in La Crosse WI (where we bought the head) are awesome and have stood behind me solid throughout this whole debacle.
Undoubtedly top notch company!
Unfortunately, their hands are tied until the mothership (CaseIH) will honor what they sell!
