Do you guys know of any major failures on the 7010/8010 combines ie:hyd pumps,elevators,bearings etc. in the first three years since new.I'm looking at buying and want to know if the combine will be reasonably hassle free.
It's no secret here in the States that the 8010 had it's startup problems. The problems are well known on this site....just look back thru the pages on here. CIH has been on top of most of the issues with updates on the machines.
Another thing I will add is that this is not a fix it yourself combine, you need a good dealer with parts on hand and a great mechanic with some electronic skills.
