Tin work for the grain tank is falling apart with 500hrs. First got a whole in the side panel from the support cable on the incline auger that holds the weight when folded down, so the cable got moved to the bolt for the bin extension. Now the panel right behind this one is cracking apart from the vibration of the clean grain elevator. Would this all be warranty work, or considered not their problem? I see other 70/8010 with same problem.

is this a problem on all of these units, since introduction in 03 to present or just the newer models, last couple of years?

We had that big inspection door on the back side of the grain tank collapse. The spot welds broke lose and allowed it to give way from the weight of the wheat. that is the stupidest design ever. The steel is like 1/8 in and has to carry all that weight.

2008 machines are getting lots of updates, inclined auger and tube beffed up, metel under sump going from 2mm to 6mm, redesigned tailings processor...can't remember all details. Just for rice combines as far as I know. Had conference call in early Dec.
