Dealer throwing me trade considerations on a 05' 8010 with just under a 1000 hours....

A machine that is going to come out of Iowa---replacing the bubble up auger.........to me, this is a red flag that basically means alot of wear on all the other flightings thruout the machine, just not as visable.

I have seen 8010's advtzd with extended wear packages...presume worth considering......

Going to be pretty dificult to make the trip to Iowa to take a look, but worried that a machine out of corn/bean country could have 2x or 2.5x the wear with that hrs on vrs a wheat country machine.

Does a macdon flex draper have plastic or protection plates underneath? Easy to lock up?

thanks for any thoughts/comments

where's it at?, I could look at it for you. if it is a extended wear the cone and cage are RED. they can have a SS elevator as well. rethresher is a must to look at, and look for the certification sticker. 05 is the older style cage and cone. I would never buy one unless it was changed. be sure the chopper was updated. I have been through all this sh*t. 105350 has 1200 sep hrs on it and has ALL the updates done (encluding cone and cage)and a color screen and newest best software. I should keep her, but right now it doesn't work. 9120 is a lot different than a 8010 if your coming to iowa, look at her as well.

Draper heads run on some runners that are plastic coated i guess you would stay...kinda like the 1020 heads... steel with a rivited on plastic shield...

also its very easy to lock into rigid mode....

u have to every time you put it on a header trailor so thats not a issue..sometimes starting out you need a block but usually she works like a charm..

Draper heads are worth the money!!! alot of fun to run too.
