We have used the 8010 to harvest Great Northern edible beans for the last three years.
It does an excellent job, very few beans out the back, clean sample in tank, very little cracking. Much more capacity than our 2388 with specialty rotor. We have to put an air dam on the lower sieve, this is available from Case. Have used round bar, slotted, and large wire with wires pulled in various combinations. They have made it quite easy to change the threshing modules.

We are located in Western Nebraska, the majority of GN beans in the US are grown here. They like low humidity. all the acres here are irrigated.

Which threshing module worked the best? We grow pinto beans up here. Also had navies in the past too. Might try them again down the road.

Sorry about the late reply, have been out of town for a week. We also have pinto, light red kidney, navy, and a few black beans grown in our area. If threshing conditions are fairly good, I run a slotted grate in front, large wire with every other wire pulled in second, round bar in thrid and slotted in fourth. If we are in tougher conditions we put a larger wire with every other wire pulled in the first position also.
