Hmmmm.....then I guess that the MacDon rep that
came by to check on it must have been REALLY lost.

8950 The mirrors are a safety item also. I can keep an eye on the truck drivers while I am unloading. Just to make sure no one has walked in tight to the machine.

How do you run that thing without auto header contols? That means the operator is manually tilting the header as well as controling the height. What mph do you run when cutting? You can see in the pictures how nice it is to run a draper on a rotary combine when there's no cross auger dust in front of you

Case IH's headers are made by MacDon. Infact, if you look, the adapter to the 8010 will alot of the time say MacDon instead of Case IH on it. They have been doing this since I believe 04 when the first 8010s came out.

Hey Midwest! Well, duh on my part! I didn't explain this
very well...a hillside combine tilts the header automatically..the 8010 uses a master/slave cylinder set
up..the master is set on the main axle...as the separator
levels, the slave cylinder keeps the header parallel to the ground, so the operator does not have to manually
tilt the header. He can trim manually when needed, like
when the machine exceeds the max level of 27%. Older
Hillside machines like the 1670 that I run use a simple
cable set up to tilt the header ( ie as the left side driver
goes down, the cable pulls down the left side of the
platform) The down side to this old system is that there
is no trim.
As for the height control...well it turns out that I lied
to you..Steep set me straight this AM. When the MacDon rep was here, he extracted the right stuff from the software and enabled the height control that works
off pressure at the feeder house....set the height manually, punch the button and presto! Auto height
control. And our boy Steep used it....some. Since the
height is governed at the feeder house and not out at the cutter bar, he had to override when crossing a draw
for example....raise the header, get across the draw , then reset the height. Not quite as handy as an auto
control using either radar or a potentiometer.
So a long winded answer that boils down to this:
The tilt is auto....and it does have auto height....and
before we get done it will probably have a different
auto height control. Hopefully, Steep will show up on here in the next couple of days and give you an even
better answer... in the meantime....a shot of the main
axle under the 8010....two leveling cylinders left and right and the platform tilt master in the center.

Thanks, I was thinking that the operator would need ESP and one heck of a thumb to run that thing all day. Neat pictures and a neat setup.

Midwest: Yup, Hillco did a real neat job on the 8010;
it's really well done. The separator only had to be raised
a few inches and the whole set up is clean & simple.

OK....that I can do. A little different angle here as the
8010 starts down the west side of the cove. Always
nice wheat back in this spot.

A longer shot as he starts the return up the bottom of the draw. This was seeded with a
Flexi-Coil air cart & drill into chem-fallow.

Jumping over a silt dam in the bottom. Had a lot of neighbors tell us before harvest
that the 36 foot header would NEVER work .....too wide!!

A nice head shot of "Steep" at the controls of the 8010. Some really nice wheat down in this
part of the field. The overall average was 70 bu.....and it was running way above that down
in this draw. Still have to do some fine tuneing on the flex drraper header....when that is
done it will be an even better copliment to the capacity of the 8010.

Looks like "steep" needed a 37 foot header in that third pic
. I usually have that problem in soybeans right next to the road and the auger wagon guy has to run it down.
Tell us how big the drill is you use and what you pull it with and how many acres are we looking at. TIA

Unbelievable pictures. We farm in flat land Illinois. Dad and I are just amazed how good that wheat looks; not mention trying to harvest it. Those pictures should be an advertisement for CIH.

Those photos are incredible. I'm sure you must be used to pictures like this, with the scenic backdrop, but for those of us from the "flat land", we are in awe.
