Feeder chains??

Running a CR9080 combine and need a new feeder chain. Any preference on what chain is better or worse? What would you choose and why?
New Holland $3200
Harvest Service $2400 (plastic slats)
A&I (Loewen) $2600

We put in a Harvest Services chain a couple of years ago. We went with them because they were cheaper, and the dealer said they sell a lot of them and they seem to last every bit as good as the OEM ones. The advantage of the plastic slats chain is that it's lighter so in theory the chain won't stretch as much under the weight of the slats. The slats seem to be hold up well. They appear to be glass reinforced plastic, molded around a steel strip. So they are strong but can flex if you got a rock under them. Chain links appear to be the same gauge as the OEM ones.

3 strand or 4 strand chains? Our 9080 originally had 3 strand and we did the update kit to 4 when they wore out. Kit is a bit pricy as you need a new front drum, etc. Seem to be lasting as well as the 9090 I run with that still has original chains. I put OEM chains in with the update kit.

Get the harvest services. The poly slats have a reinforcing spring steel bar on the back side they don't break or bend it seems. They run super quiet and half the weight of the factory chain. They went through severe abuse last fall in the snow-ola and look really good.

So quiet, no more hammering just whirring. Should have done it years ago.

Those prices seem high, I though my harvest services was under 2 grand. I like it for the most part but am wondering if it skips links easier then stock. Mine came with one in when I bought so hard to say. Doesnt benc slats though so that's nice

Arrgggg, where were you guys a couple weeks ago??? We took the butt raping of buying one from New Holland for just over $3000, had considered the plastic ones but didn't know much about them. Guess I know better for next time!

It's easy enough to be pleasant, when life goes by like a song. But the man worth while, is the man with a smile, when everything goes dead wrong!

Picked up a Harvest Services chain this morning for just under $2200, about 2/3 of the OEM cost.hope I think I made the right decision.

Father in-law traded combines couple years ago and agreed on price if we installed new feeder chain that they would provide at cost. It was 1500 or around there from NH. Guess those f**kers are running 80-100% mark up. That was on a CX840.
