deere released a pip in oct. on any machine with the "High Torque Variable feederhouse drive installed" wether it was factory installed or field installed it needs to have additional welds and gussets added to the reverser mounts. even some of the machines that are part of this pip, don't get all the welds that they need. so if you have this reverser and didn't get added gussets, i suggest you check it out, because these cracks and breaks are easy to miss with the reverser installed. here are some pics of what is the usual failure, however this is not the only way they fail. just a little info to possibly prevent a major break down in the heat of everything

i'm sure everyone is getting that harvest itch, i know i am. so i guess this gives you an excuse to go out and visit your machine

the new feeder house that i got to replace this one with, looked exactly like this one, however, i had to add the 2 gussets around the cable hole, and i had to finish the weld around the bottom support, right where it broke.
DTAC told me that they were still analyzing the situation on these machines

no small gusset, however, that top piece is thicker

i had quite a time with those clutches last year too, went through 3 on 2 machines in 3 days. 1291 stalkmasters first thing in the morning, i don't think they had their coffee yet and didn't want to get going.
wasn't good, DTAC also told me "they were working on it"


went to Wahpeton for 70 series last week. didn't hear a word about the clutch. they did spend quite a bit of time on the new 5 speed in the 98's though, which i think looks pretty good, too bad it's only in the 9870

Our dealer is telling us that they can't find a PIP on the feeder house. Our machine is a 2007 9660, can anyone give me more specific info on how to find out if our machine needs this or not?

Thanks
