I would like to see the beacons stay on at night after 3/4 full. Would make it easier on the grain cart with multiple combines.

Is there a way to get CaseIH to change it, or are there other reasons for the way they are programed?

I will disagree. They are not distracting, never heard of any complaints on the 88 series beacons. All Case has to do is program them to go off when the unloading starts. If the tank is still over 3/4 when stop unloading the lights should stay on. A cart driver can get confused really quickly when working with more than 3 combines at night when the cart is dumping at the trucks.
The 2388s and 2588 with beacons stayed on when they were full. Lowering the sensor made it easier on the cart and the combine could stay moving.

Either A. you havent run in hills in 300+ acre fields at night, or you expect everyone to be perfect.

I never said I relied on it. It is a feature that alerts the cart operator.

i know it is not rocket science, but if you start a field in the dark that is not square. you must never have to replace a sickle section or have a cart operator that has helped another combine operator with problems. i still dont know why they didnt leave it the same as on the 2588s on all the time when full.
