Inside the plant where they fed us and showed films. I have a few pics of the actual plant tour on the Case Message board if you want to take a look. The tour was very interesting.

Well ain't we the one with an anger management issue. Since you have no proof and judging by your attitude. Then you know I am right.

Samuel your going to have to give your definition of being "the same"?
If someone said a A85 Gleaner and a 9895 Massey Ferguson were the same, yes, other then color they're the same.
But to suggest an 8010 and a CR 9070 are the same...I don't think that would wash with anyone here...
Do you? Really?

I have been on 2 plant tours in the last 18 months. The frame is not the same, nor the rotor setup, or the sieves. You can tell by just glancing at a unfinished frame which one it is. I will go through my pictures to see if I took any pictures of the NH frame, not sure though. Settle down guys, at least its not green!!

Plus the IHs have a cvt to run the rotar. Now that would be nice in the CRs wouldnt it?
Oh and the Cabs are the same frame. But differant interior.

Well this has turned into something interesting....

the things you mention that are the same are kinda rather small.

they share the same steering wheel!!!!!!

meanwhile there are some major things different...

the hole one rotor and the other has 2 rotors kinda changes alot..

then everything else theyve been talking about is right..

this isn't agco so stop trying to make it that.

Case didn't exactly want to build this combine they were told to.

why NH decided there combine was better is beyond me..

Its worked out tho so no biggy whats in the past is the past..

Case had a combine in the works that was going to be 25% bigger and was going to come out sometime soon before the merger.

it was going the be CBX (some number)

if u notice everything is X

MX STX SPx ect...

Oh, the elusive magical case prototype comes up again. Nice to see the evidence of it pouring in as usual!

I think in the 1st couple years of 8010s people were asking why oh why they didn't have the CR's belt drives to the rotors, instead of the other way around. Think of the gearbox on a CVT twin rotor. That would be massive! I would think it will go that way sometime.

Different rethresher system as well.

Neighbors have 2 2004 8010s. They have replaced the CVT in both. Still having control pressure trouble in one even after that. Thats 100% of the 8010s sold out of our local store, and I heard of more from other dealerships.

wow 2 combines.... thats some pretty good data

our main dealer sold there first 8010 and 7010 this year and no issues

another local dealer who sells alot of them sold 8 this past year no issues.

those two combines have all the updates done?????

i know its been a learning process but those guys who jumped into it kinda knew that in the beginning.

I guess case IH could try the John Deere method. Change the sticker on the side, add some horsepower, and raise the price. As long as it is green they will buy it, doesn't matter if it the best or not. I personally would rather deal with some issues on the first 8010's than have to run a JD rotor.
