These pictures are of our demo model CR9080. We ran it up at Lake King approx 250km north west of Esperance Western Austarlia. Had 42ft Center mout HoneyBee. Barley crop went 2.2t avg and we knocked out 70 hectares in just on 4 hrs. The farmers most impressed were John Deere owners, couldn't get over the capacity of the machine.

hey cr960 was reading a thread of yours from a year or so ago where you had tou build up the shaft under your feeder house and replace bearings at 400 odd hours. we bought a 2nd hand cr960 last year with 300 rotor hours on it and did the 1st harvest with it with little problems however was told at pre season this yeat that the whole shaft and all bearings needed to be replaced at over $2800 cost, not happy! and on closer examination it appeared the previos owner had already had problems as the shaft had been built up and machined altho not very well! just wondering how your machining job went and did u blokes enjoy a good harvest over there this year ( we are 1/3 way thru ours weather holding us up- west vic ) cheers superb

So what's the difference between the 9070, 9080, and 9090. Insn't the 9070 a class 8? So is the 9080 a class 9? and what is the 9090, the first of the dreamt up class 10's? It's kinda confusing.

So what are the 9070's and 9080's. I thought 9070's were class 8's. So what's a 9080? A class 8.5 or a super class 8?

Sam, I think you are talking about the europian models and classes (you missed the 9070). The N.A's are different i believe. This is how it is in N.A, i think.

9040- class 6
9060- class 7
9070- class 8 (same as EU 9080 i believe)
9080- class 9

John Deere, CIH, Claas/Lexion Gleaner, MF (Same co, different model numbers) all have models where you can guess the "class" from.

I.E. R76 = class 7; 9895 = class 8, 590R = class 9, 8120 = class 8, and so forth.


Why the heck can't NH do the same.... Why isn't a 9090 a class 9, and a 9080 the class 8... Just to confuse the heck out of people?

/end rant

Great pics!!!
Thanks for the info, Sam
