I hope Tony wont mind to much for me posting the link and the info?
Thanks for the information. One thing that I have noticed is the 95 has a 2 strand feeder chain and the newer ones have a 3 strand. The combine that sounds like the best one ( I haven't seen all of them yet) is a 95. The fellow has to quit farming as he can't take the dust anymore, he has owned the combine since it was four years old and takes it to the local Case dealer every one or two years, I think if he had a whole lot of problems it would have been long gone. Thanks again for the link.
Geez, I used to know what they were, and I can't find my list now. You might have to talk to a dealer and get the bulletins, most of the things that were changed were product improvement updates, so they got done under warranty. We're running an early 21 and a late 21, and there's a pile of gussets and such on the early 21 that you can tell were welded on in the field and/or bolted on after it was painted that you can also tell were factory installed on the late one. As far as design changes, there isn't hardly anything different, just some small part # subs.
Regarding the electrical system, it seems like they both have the same problems - but I think most of the serious electrical issues were either product improvement warranty mods, or "fix as fail" mod/subs, so if it was a real issue, it's probably failed and been replaced on a 12 year old combine. All in all, the pair that we have are both very good machines, and I really can't say that one is better than the other.
And on the "new, larger cab filter" - the new style one still sucks, just figure on modifying it.
