I was wondering if people with 7010s or 8010s would share what they think of the machines so far. (likes/dislikes) We are looking at a 7010 and an 8010 . We were looking at a 2588 but after much thought decided we would be much happier with a 7010 or 8010. We will be combining all corn with a 12 row head.

The 8010 had a more HP then the 7010 and is part of the Flagship line of combines. Because of the increased HP and size the throughput is greater in general. But the 8010 used a grain pan which has had a bad reputation of letting large grain to pile up, especially in higher moisture. CaseIH had corrected this with the introduction of the aggressive cleaning system. The 8010 can offer you more bells and whistles including a self leveling cleaning system which may or may not be important depending on where you are harvesting. The 7010 is an upgrade to the 2388 which used an auger bed to move the grain to the cleaning system. It has increased HP, larger grain tank, larger clean grain elevator and increased unloading speeds as well as a larger feeder. The wheel base has also increased and you can now get in cab sieve adjust which is a popular feature of the 8010. Of course the 7010 will come with a lower price tag. The 7010’s just came out last fall so very few customers have experience, but from what I heard, the custom cutters who ran the development machines were impressed and are also happy with the styling changes. The 7010 still has the 2388’s cab with some improvements, the 8010’s cab is larger if that in important.

Correction to some of Your Qoutes Johnnyboy.
The 7010's have the same grain pan as the 8010, along with the self leveling sieves, and the Operators cab is the same as an 8010.

johnny boy you might want to stick to giving advice on what is fact. The 7010 and 8010 are combines of the same design. they both have the same cab, self leveling sieves, grain pan, CVT drive, rethreasher, remote sieve adjustment, to name a few. the biggest similarity of the 2388 and a 7010 is the Case IH logo on the side.

The 2 machines in question are pretty much the same above the sieves, but the 7010 has a narrower sieve than the 8010. the 8010 also has bigger horsepower and grain tank. We have been running a 7010 for the last 2 years and have gotten along pretty good, we run a 12 row head on it and it handles it alright. this year we seemed to be maxing the sieves out in the fields that were making over 240bu. at 19-20%

7010s are a great combine. Grains pans are great -perform much of the cleaning before the material even hits the chaffer. They also don't puke cleaning system parts out the back end every so often. It will handle a 12 row much better because of about 10000 lbs on a 2588. All this is same as the 8010, since they are much the same machine as stated above.

I think johnnyboy has the 7010 & 7088 mixed up. I never maxed out the sieves, but have a 12 row 20".
Would run out of power unloading on the go in 250 bu/a at 5mph. Would hit 4,000bu/hour at the time.

good choise good thinking
I would go for 8010. It has wider cleaning shoe. On 7010 you must be very careful with pitch point or you will have one side of the shoe overloaded. 8010 is not so hard on this kind of mistakes
Not to mention more HP

I ran the 8010 alongside the 7010 and the 2588s, and there was no comparison in wheat. The 8010 could run on average of 1mph faster in 60-90 bushel wheat. The 7010 could outperform the 2588s, but the 8010 was the better performing machine by far. I was looking at the same thing when I traded machines and I am sue glad I chose the 8010 over the 7010. But, it is a decision to be made by each individual according to how they are going to use the machine. For my operation at home and on the road the 8010 was the right fit for me.
