To state the obvious, wonder if his chopper hammers are rounded on the leading edge?Anyone else running these Ideals get as much trouble as Mike seems to get with the chopper getting blocked?. There must be a lip or an edge inside somewhere thats obstructing the straw as it falls down from the rotors or perhaps the ends of the rotors should be fitted with blades to make an initial chop and shorten the length of the material before it falls down to the chopper. Whatever is up Agco want to sort it
Actually had a similar program here way back for the MF 3500 series tractors when they came out after the 2000 series.I friend of me runs a "red" dealership.
They also offer the full package warrenty, bumper to bumper. For combines and all other kinds of machinery. Usually also for 5yrs.
But you hsve to do (and pay) the yearly maintenance at the dealership.
He said Agco was frist with this but all the others followed. No matter if lime green, dark green, yellow or red...
Yes all of the Mitchel farm combines have been updated to the shark fin design. In tough lentil straw, they don't appear to make any difference compared to the old design. The worst part is there's no way of knowing whether the straw is starting to plug or not. By the time the rotors plug it's way too late.Blocked our spinners once last year in canola but that turned out to be a spinner rpm issue. Rotor exit has been updated to the Shark fin design for this harvest but never had any problems in our conditions.
I was watching Mike digging out that back end multiple times throughout the day and I was thinking the same thing Don. That combine would be gone, period!Don’t know about you guys, there is no way I would put up with that, one way or the ****ing other that would quickly end!
It‘s the reason I got rid of a NH TX68.
I agree with both of you! I wouldn’t keep a POS like that around even if it was free!! Harvest is stressful enough without added Bullsh!t by an obvious problem that Agco/Ideal can’t figure out!!I was watching Mike digging out that back end multiple times throughout the day and I was thinking the same thing Don. That combine would be gone, period!
