I have an 07 8010 as well as an 07 2588. On both machines in corn with a chopping head, the rotary screen becomes plugged from bees wings (red corn chaff) and the machine will begin to heat. The 8010 has an electronic switch that limits the machine so as to not fry the engine. On the 2588, it did the same thing and the dealer put on the update kit which consisted of a brush and different style screen (black with perforations and the edge). The 2588 was purchased in 07and the kit was put on that fall. The 8010 I bought last in 08 with zero hours, but it had the old style screen. When asked if it would perform during our corn harvest, the dealer said we would have to try it. It did the same thing as the 2588 did (good thing for the "dummy" switch because I was trying to fry the d**n thing I was so mad), and in the end we had to pay half of the cost of the kit, approx. $3500. So, if you run corn and red machines with a chopping head make sure the machine comes with the new rotary screen.
All in all, I have ran Case IH since 1990 and they have been great to my harvesting operation, but this screen deal really made me mad because the CNH engineers have known about this problem since early 2007, but the dealers keep selling these machines with the old screen. Anyone else have this issue? I farm and harvest in the Dakotas and Minnesota, but I have heard of this problem in Illinois and Iowa as well.
Thanks for your time and I love this website.
