This is our smallest combine we run, and I was wondering what is the biggest corn and grain header I can put on it. My dealer wasn't very helpful with this issue (thats probably because he knows I will not buy my header off of him).
Yeah we are running a 693 corn and a 630 hydra flex. I want to bump my grain header up to a 635 but I know it won't be able to handle it, and I really don't want to be dropping the header on the trailer everytime we move feilds either. We run a 630 down the road right now, and that is very tight in some areas. And as far as corn header I think I'm going to trade in my 693 for a 893. I have to see what it is going to cost me, beucase I don't know if its going to be worth it for two rows, and plus this combine is going to be 2 years old this summer, so it will be the next one to trade in, which will probably be in a year.
We run a 9560sts with an 894 cornhead. It is a good match for it. We run a 625f for beans. I would like to go to a 630 the next time. I have a friend that runs the 630 and really likes it. The machine has the capacity. In shorter stem, dry beans I was running 5.5 mph with 60-65 bushel yeild. You can run the 894 at 3.5-4.5 mph in 170-220 bushels corn. It is crazy what you can put threw this machine. The slower speeds are in higher moisture. For high moisture (30%) the seive is your limiting factor. It won't go threw fast enough. Under 20% you can push 4 - 4.2 in 200+ corn. We do run the Calmer trash reduction kit and I think that helps the speed a fair amount. I know we are the only ones in our area running a head that big on one. I honestly would not put anything smaller than an 893 on one unless you like wasting capacity or driving really fast.
We are getting 60 bpa to probably 75-80bpa. and we have never had a problem with it yet. I will ask the guy that runs it at what speed he runs it at, and if he ever has had any problems with it, but as far as I know, he has never said anything to me about having problems. I usually run the 9860
I have a 9560 sts 2006 it has a vib in it and it is in when separator is ingaged. I have replaced rotor pulley engine grear case pulley that runs rotor drive shaft to primary gear case taken shaft out of prim gear case and squared on on lathe ....can run rotor and engine gear case without drive shaft is smooth I think its primary gear case but the pros say it is nature of beast give me back my 9500 any thoughts
