The fan hub broke on our 2588 this fall with less than 500 hours on the combine. Dealer says Case acknowledges a problem with this part. Has anyone who has had this problem gotten any compensation from Case on the cost of the repair?
Fall of 07 our 2388 with 500 hours- fan hub came loose and went thru radiator and air to air . Approx $7000 but Case came thru and paid all the bills. The bearing was good in the hub but it looked like the bolts came loose that hold it to the block
I just traded it for a 2588 so I hope it doesnt happen again, I see they now use a plastic fan instead of metal fan - which would make it a lot lighter. The bolts that held that whole assembly on were way to small for the amount of weight out there.
Happened on our '05 2388 this year. Dealer said they had never seen it before but it looks like it has happened a few times by the post here. Combine had a few more hours then you guys. Caught it at about 1500hrs
