I needed new straw walker cranks for one of the 8460's, Claas price was worth more than the combine. I tracked down aftermarket cranks in Europe for much cheaper, then tracked down who actually manufactured them. Contacted the manufacturer in Turkey, and bought them directly for much cheaper again. The contact spoke/typed great English, was really interesting to talk to. Had lots of questions about combines in Canada and our potential market. Most of their parts are straw walkers and cranks.
The shipping right to my doorstep wasn't unreasonable, although it did take a long time.

And before I got them installed, we had purchased the second lexion, and no longer needed the 8460's. So the nasty job of installing them has not yet happened.
