We only have the front going, have the belt removed off the rear end, rotor out of gear, feeder house chains removed. Even with the rotor stopped, cant stop rotor hours from clocking up.
Allot of crops are short and we are putting two widths of 39' into one, to do this with a rake you would lose most of it.
We have been charging 12.00 Au plus diesel for contract work. A large amount of Australia's crop will end up in hay.
Regards from Victoria Australia,

You can run the 8010 with the rotor in neutral, the only part of the combine going is the top feeder house roller and we have removed the feeder chains.

Hi brickwalker, thanks for your comments.
The computer can be tricked to think the rotor is still running, by running the rotor then getting off the machine, selecting neutral, then while the rotor is still free spinning, get back in the seat and start the front.
