Just wondering if someone has compared both units in terms of grain loss. I always thought the 8120 has a larger diameter rotor than our 2588 but found out its the same...perhaps they have with the new concaves more separating area that way.
Anyhow...would be interesting how these 2 units compare...I assume both units would run better than an STS

They are both big hawgs what can put down the acres and do a perfect job both on the ground and have a beautiful sample. One really doesnt realize how far ahead of the competition these machines are until you run them for a few seasons. They are great machines and one just has to get over the fear of walking up to one and looking at what appears to be a nightmare, because they are far from that. We was running 3 2388s and switched to 2 8010s and the other guy I work with went from 2 2388s to 2 8010s 4 of them harvest alot of acres. I also have a couple friends who run the CRs and they love em. I harvested a little corn with his CR and I was very impressed, lots of capacity..

Have a neighbour running 8010 and 8020's This year he had up to 7 of them and often only 1 or 2 running at a time. Mostly running 36 foot Macdon headers and eating stones like crazy breaking feeder chains and shooting holes through things with stones. Not sure what kind of stone trap they have. He demoed a 9070 last year and it would run away from the red with a better sample and spread straw much better. Getting used to the stone sensor system in the NH is something a lot don't like but it sure can save down time and dollars.

Ran our 8010 with a new 9070 and they are about the same. We were in duram and the combines both did about the same job at the same rate of production. In my opinion they are so close that the deciding factor for me would be what brand you are more comfortable with or has the best service.

Ok, thank you for the insight. So the the NH is like a redekop chopper but the Case has the same basic chopper that they did on the 14 series...got it.

Also burnt one up into a melted puddle of plastic! ??

Case or New Holland that burnt? New Holland would not be a puddle of plastic because the sides and all the shields (except for chopper belt shield) are metal not plastic.

There is a deflector in front of the chopper on 20 series that can be adusted by pulling a pin and pushing a lever then re-pinning in a differant hole to adjust the load of the straw away from the rh side.

That trial was total crap! Why? For one, they [Kondinnin Group] admitted that the LEXION 580 was only running on 5 cylinders due to engine problems (it still came second). The folks running the machines admitted they were not experts nor had any experience with the models being tested. Why would you actually post that, it discredits the test.
