Hello to all who may have an answer to my question. I recently purchased an 05 8010 and when I asked my dealer if it was certified he claimed that it was basically a dealers choice or the owners choice as to if they wanted to pay for the updates. My question is does caseih certify all pre machines by me contacting them or was the dealer right. My thoughts are if caseih wants these machines to be reliable and for the customers to be happy then they would certify them to make that happen. So far I am happy when she is running but I have had a few bugs here and there. The alternator went out and it fried the ecm in the process. Down for 5 days wasnt to happy about that one....

The certification program was up to the customer. One of the dealerships mechanics would inspect the combine and make a list of everything that was broken, wore, etc on the combine. Then everything that was found to be in need of repair on the unit had to be fixed at the customers expense for parts and labor. Once this was all done the dealership and the customer would sign off that everything was satisfactory on the unit, and Case IH would then send a sticker to put on the unit. The certification is completely different then the Case IH 8010 campaigns that Case would send the combine off to be updated. Long story short, the certifications were voluntary and the campaigns were manditory.

Parts is correct for most of what he said but there was a very specific/extensive check list of things to have checked and the machine had to pass all of them to be certified. Case-IH also paid for the checkover/labour and there was a discount on any parts that were required for the unit to pass the certification program.
