First time to visit this site. I thought some of you might like to see some of our 2005 wheat harvest pictures. Put around 200 hrs. on each combine and averaged about 27 acres/hour. We were very pleased with the 8010 combines.

What size heads are those and did you have any mechanical problems with the combines? If you want you can elaborate and tell us all about your experiences with them.
Thanks
Justin

Awesome pictures.I really like the last one with the windmills.I think I know whose machines those are.Don't they belong to a Weinhiemer over near Groom?Aren't they across the road or close to the Friemels elevator?

Great Pics... Just love to see 8010's in action. How did you like your headers? We used all 30 or 36' MacDon's up here in Sask. with good success. Feel free to post some more...just can't get enough good 8010 combine pics. Best wishes from Canada!

Here's a couple of details. The wheat averaged anywhere from 45 to 75 bushels/acre and we could run the combines anywhere from 6-8mph (sometimes faster) depending on if the wheat was laying down, muddy conditions, etc. At times we were consistenly cutting 1800 bushels/hour and up, this of course all depended on how low we had to cut. The biggest breakdown was a faulty gear position sensor on one of the machines which caused the machine not shift in fourth gear, not a big problem. Other than that there was a few minor updates and small problems such as a broken chain due to overtightening. As for the headers they are 36' honeybees, we were very impressed on how smooth, reliable, heavy built they were. They did an excellent job of picking up down wheat at fast speed. It was an excellent harvest this year and the 8010's really made it go by smoothly. The combines exceeded our expectations and did a fine job in replacing our Gleaner R62s and R70s.

Yes indeed, the photos are great. Also looks like pretty good wheat and how about that second crop of wind mills out there. Looks like a good way to double crop.

To post a good size is 800x600, a good way to resize is getting the Windows resizer if you have Windows XP or just use you digital cameras software to resize the imapge. When using photobucket under the picture there is a Url, Tag, and Img. Just copy everything that is in the Img box and paste in the post box.
Another thing is to Read the Forum Rules / Terms / How-To guides located at the top of each forum. I will get a post with pick in the Off Topic Fourm soon to make more sense.

Yo Justin! Thanks for the help! Read the how to at the top of the forum....still a little unclear.
In the meantime , let's try a different picture. If this works, this 8010 is at work on SRS Ranches just east of The Dalles, Oregon.

That's a big ten-roger there Justin. Another shot of the 8010....about our second day out and starting to test out the Hillco leveling.
