can someone explain the numbering system for the 2014 model year and class of combine. I think I have it figured but :rolleyes:

Class 8. 8090
Class 9. 9090
Class 10. ???

And what about the elevation models made in Belgium. We're all 9090's classified as an elevation? Did they even make a North American 9090?

Thanks for your input

You know, in the last 15 years I think New Holland has a dartboard in the boardroom titled "How should we number our equipment next year?";)

first digit is class the class 10 is the new 10090 The NA 9090 replaced the previous 9080 the 8090 is renamed 9070 and i understand that the 9090Z is Belguim 9090 and straight 9090elevation is NA
New/already :confused: old was...
6090 was 9040
7090 was 9060
8080 was 9065
8090 was 9070
9090 was 9080
9090 Elevation, Belgium with Opti Clean

Now: ;)
6.90 max hp 401
7.90 max hp 449
8.90 max hp 517
9.90 max hp 571
9.90 Elevation max hp 571
10.90 Elevation max hp 653

Seems they have dropped the old 9065/8080 which was the same horsepower of the 9070 with the small frame machine. All big frame machines which start at the 8 have the 410 bushel hopper and can get twin pitch rotors and DFR (used to be DSP...). Elevation is Opticlean essentially and was limited to Belgium machines but they finally brought NA built machines.

10.90 only comes as an Elevation model and comes standard with twin pitch and DFP.

I think they should come up with a new numbering system again lol! Knowing them, they probably will!

In reality, numbers should be matched to machine frame and not HP at all IMO. If there is no difference in the machine size except for engine HP it should just be marked liked that.
All these combines are marketting HP differences (including JD) as model size differences when in reality they are not. They are merely tweaking up fuel pumps and or adding various options to the same machine.
As a parallel note, CIH had a 1680 with a 466 eng and standard sieve. They changed to a Cummins motor and long sieve and kept the same name. These were improvements but it is basically the same combine which I think is the proper way to do it. There are way too many numbers that I finally don't know what is available anymore and what really has changed from one model to the next. Auto Cad'ing new paint schemes etc. must be cheap to do and an effective sales tool. The reality in most machines like a JD or CASE is that they still have the same 30" rotor. The other tweaks they do to HP and cleaning system are merely enhancements to the "same old same old". Place bars in different spots, change the shape, add pieces to the sieve - basically refine and reinvent the wheel.

It is all in the game they love to play called MARKETING! "Increasing sales etc. etc. and market share!"

Due to the constantly changing models, you must provide dealers with the serial number of your combine, so that you can actually go to the online parts catalog and see exactly what is on your combine. They change filters and just about everything you can think of as required (AR)! Yesterday, parts man phoned and inquired. the part I need is $31,000 and is backordered (BO) from the US. The part if needed sooner has to be shipped in from Europe! See my other post in NH for a still unresolved issue!
