Still have the lexion 575, but nobody wanted to run the gps, autoguide, pro600, in one of the last 8010's made uncle traded for last fall after harvest.............So after running a lexion in beans for the last 8 years, Im back in a black air filled rubber doughnut machine. i do like the 8010, its a good machine.
Here's my personal feeling: Absolutly no combine should have tires underneath 30,000 pounds of weight. We have 710 metric duals for the tires, and they do ok, but for ride, stabillity, driving down the road, and even machine storage, tracks are hands down, not even worth arguing about, FAR, FAR, more superier than tires. I know the rice guys know what they are doing with mud, and they have tires to get what they want done, but up here, in mud, you can easily spend 2/3 rds of 50 grand to get ya through the mud, but you still wont get what I mentioned above.
FWIW: The track option on the 20 series comes with an 18,000 dollar mudhog..........just like lexions.
IMO: If it were my money, I know where it would go.
I'll respect others opinions if they have equivelent experience as mine on this subject.
