I realize all you guys think its terrible to market a combine witha bigger engine as a larger combine but the fact remains (for us in western Canada anyway). Hp is almost always the limiting factor for us in rotary combines. The only time I have ever ran an 8010 that hp was not the limiting factor was two years ago in very dry canola. I guess those conditions are what you guys run in mostly so I understand your concern but the buy the 8120 and quit complainig as we have been asking for more power ever since they have came out.

well the flag ships as the bloke from cnh called them, compared to jd, massey and gleaner, the axial flows is superior in rotor, cleaning and clean grain areas, the hp is more ore less the same thou. in the mid range, 5088, 6088 and 7088, the 70 is a new class that case enters, the 6088 is actually a 2588 in a 7010,s covers, with some improvements thou

Guys,

Come harvesting over in the UK in a 4 tonnes per acre crop of wheat. 600hp is not enough. We need 1000hp engines in combines.
