8120 has a little more horsepower compared to an 8010. 8120 has one feeder chain verses two feeder chains on the 8010 and the 8120 has larger drive sprockets . The hydro system has been changed on the 8120 to help with control pressure. The 8120 has a factory option to come with larger feeder house lift cylinders that can be installed on the 8010 after the fact. Cosmeticly the 8120 moved the engine access latter to the back of the machine verses the side like the 8010 and the 8120 is more open on the engine platform. I am sure there are a few other differences but those are the ones that come to mind off the top of my head.
O.K. What is the diff in HP between the 08 8010 and 2010 8120? I now have a 08 8010 and I converted the chopper to a Fine Cut. I would like to get the Magna Cut chopper to go on a 8120 I will run with the 8010, but don't want the power drag of the Magna Cut to make the 8120 a dog. I think the Magna will take between 20 to 40 more ponies. Question is how many more does the 8120 have?? I grow allot of high yielding irrigated wheat that can be a bit tough to chop hear in northern Montana's late harvest.
All 20 series are factory auto-guidance ready, no longer an option. Shield changed on the tailings, feeder changes (stripper position, chain slats, top drive sprocket design), unloader swing cylinder larger, unloader spout change (again), double click of shift button on MFH engages the auto-guidance, chopper brg housing RH side improved, rear discharge shields changed, knife bank position monitor for chopper vs rpm setting of chopper. Fan clean out door was mentioned and the service ladder. New options available, engine air compressor system- hyd folding bin extensions, hyd drive unload cross augers (independent operation of the main auger).
Thanks redhat, I was wondering if you knew when they announced those options. I should have been more specific. We ordered ours in October and never saw it on the option list. The folding bin extensions were mentioned but that was it. Seems like it might be a handy thing to have, hopefully we'll be able to get it added on to our order.
What is the advantage to the hydraulically driven cross augers, can't quite wrap my head around that one. Maybe someone can explain it to me?
never heard of that, but I'm guessing so they shut down first when unloading the grain tank, allowing the unloading tube to clean out better....causing less "dribble" out the spout, or maybe for topping off a load when you can't get grain bin completely empty and don't want to leave the tube full.
I run an 07 8010 and it has the updated spout and grain saver on it that is similar if not identical to the one on the 8120, I think they have solved the problem of the dribbling grain, at least on mine they have. At this time mine is working great in corn and it leaked very little in soybeans.
well, I can tell you I have an 09 9070 that had the latest greatest spout and it seemed to work ok, but its shorter than the earlier augers cause the grain now comes out the bottom of the tube as opposed to the end, making it difficult for us guys with 40'+ headers to unload on the go. I put on "the extender" by stewart steel and really like it. Not much dribble at all, nice reach and it works great for topping off a truck. Great in windy conditions as well. I know they were kicking around the idea of shutting off the cross augers first.....would be nice for times you fill up something and you're not empty in the tank...like you said, less dribbling and easier on the auger.
So why doesn't CNH just buy the stewart steel extender ends and save the R and D money for other suff. 2rotors not saying it doesn't work well my point is the OEM's need to take a serious look at some of the aftermarket products and maybe make them standard or optional equipment from the factory, such as the stewart steel extender, PFP rotor, Razor rock beater...and the list goes on. If they put alot these items in at Grand Island they would kill the competition.
