ASP is the worst rock protection system on the planet. Pretty sure it's the nephew of one the founding parents of the company that invented it as to the reason why it wasn't discarded from NH many many years ago.Anyone that says a asp works good does not have may rocks, they suck.
Actually I talked to the dealer this morning they told me that the top sensor was actually eliminated on most cr combines (except this one) and replaced with a new asp setup so it only works off the bottom sensor. new setup costs about $1200 and only the dealer can uninstall the old and install the new apparently.can you turn off the top sensor in the monitor or unplug it? mine has never said top sensor, always the bottom, not sure if it was modified by PO though, but works for me. Im sure I get a few false dumps still, but in our mostly rock free conditions I actually quite like it. I feel that asp uses much less power and therefore fuel, and in 2 years I have never, not a single time plugged the feederhouse, even in the very tough conditions last year. I would say no it is not perfect, but then again neither where the other brands I was driving alongside. so if rocks are going to get through anyway, Id rather use less fuel to do it.

No its not only software, they would also have to replace the asp module on the side of feederhouse. The tech said by the time its said and done with eliminating the top sensor that it should remove most of bugs the asp has. As I said he told me the top senor in the feederhouse is where these combines had most of their troubles when they were new so most were changed out under some NH program back in the day. I gonna go with new stuff, used electronic stuff doesn't really interest me since you never know what little problems you might inherit with it.Hmm so its an actual software update needed? Have you looked at the feeder tab in the arrow-diamond catagory? Otherwise for parts you could check combine world, they're parting out a couple 9X0 machines, I've gotten a few batches of parts shipped out to manitoba for less then half of dealer asking price. You could see what they think of reprogramming used parts but I'm guessing they'd prefer to sell ya some new stuff.
