Hi guys.. We're getting our 1st 8010's... I'm getting several opnions on what to get stocked in our service wagons fo these machines... Any and every little thing to look for would be great. we have 07 and 08 machines.
I'm guessing that the reason we break one a year is because we are running the sieves fairly tight (the settings on the display are 11 for the top and 9 for the bottom. But remember this is just a number and every combine will be calibrated a little different.) and sending a lot of grain through the tri-sweep processor. But the good news is I know we could seed the wheat out of the bulk tank, its that clean. IMO this is the cleanest thrashing machines we have had since the old JD 6602's.
I have my sieve setting open way more then the books settings and i still have a way cleaner sample then our 88 series machine, knock on wood my 8010s have run well so far. I did have the alternator go out in barley and it fried the ecm but it was still under warranty.. You will love those machines...
Most of the parts are the same between 07 & 08 machines.
If you're really commited to having every little thing, ask your dealer for a copy of their required stocking list for the 8010, and the optional stocking list. Then order one (or more) of everything on those lists.
