8120 in 45 bushel peas 50 wheat average and 55 canola so far. Across 1600 acres. All straight cut with 40' fd70. 1 gallon per acre. First year with combine. Should be better in peas. Hoping comsuption gets better cause burnt extra in it this year due to glitches. Btw run with cart 1/2 the time. Yours?

Did some heavy canola yesterday and today (70 bu/ac). Heavy tough swathes, both machines were doing between 1.6 and 2.0 gpa. That's a 7230 and a 7120 chipped.

What issues were you having wiht the CVT, blackhawk35? What did they fix?

8230 is doing 1.1 gallons per acre in 50 bushel durum. 7120, same header in same field is 1 gallon per acre. Where is the fuel savings on the 30 series? Oh and add the cost of the DEF..... 8230 is 25% more combine though then 7120. An easy 25%.
