Just got our 8010 last week and starting to harvest with it. A few questions for guys that have run them in wheat, what are you using for fan,rotor speed and concave, pre cleaner and sieve settings?
I was running 900 on fan and rotor, concave 0-1, top sieve 14, bottom 8 and pre cleaner 5. I was having rotor loss so I speeded the rotor to 1050 and tightened the concave to 0, seemed to help but it was getting into evening so that may have changed things as well. The other question was about power, I am doing 50 bus winter wheat (straw for 70) taking alot of the straw in and going 4.25-4.75 mph with a 30 foot head 13-15% moisture. 14.5 ac/hr is what I am averaging, when I push up to 5 mph my rotor loss jumps up and I start to lose power. Is this normal capacity as we have ran JD's for a few years and I am not familiar with the 8010. I would say this is about the speed I would have ran with our 9760 sts last year.
Just curiuos about any tricks you guys might have for settings and little tweaks to keep the losses down.
Thanks

Fan spered 950-1000 (985) works best for me.Rotor speed 850-1000. 1000 for tough conditions.Concaves 0-3.5. Presieve 3.lower sieve 9-11 11 is my nomal setting.Have ran as open as 12.Upper sieve 20-22. 50 bushel wheat 70 bushel straw 7 MPH

Here are the settings my uncle gave me for my 8010, I havn't started harvest yet but my uncle is a pro on these machines and says these settings work guaranteed.

Concave - 0.1 to 0.4
Rotor - 1100 to 1150rpm
Fan - 1100rpm
Top Sieve - Front 5/16"
- Middle 5/8"
- Rear 1/2"
Bottom Sieve - 5/16" to 3/8"

Try these and let me know if they work, then I can tell him at my brothers wedding next weekend if he is king of the 8010 or not.

Good luck
Rich

When you say losses are you looking at the loss monitor or actually checking the ground. I find the grain loss monitor sensitivity has to be adjusted for the threshing and the sieves like the dials on the old axial flows. The monitors on the 8010 in wheat at default settings are highly sensitive, seems threshing at 50 and sieve at 20-25 area worked well in our conditions and gave a very accurate reading in the monitor of what was happening after checking the ground.
Using 1-5/8 pre-sieve, 1-5/8 chaffer and 1-1/8 sieve with the fan any higher than 900 it would start to blow grain over the chaffer. Pre-sieve 3rd notch, chaffer 14 and shoe 10, fan at 800-850 rpm. concave 1.5-2.0, rotor 880rpm, soft red, 80bpa taking all the straw, 14% moisture.
