Raised console approx. 1.5 inches, this in combination with factory lowering as console is adjusted forward seems to fit most people better. About every little thing; when you have to order in Nov. of 08 to get delivery July 09 and none are around to sit in at time of ordering and its a deletion of something that has been there for 30+ years, YES. AS to buying decision probably not but knowing would have given us more time to do something about it.
Went to combine clinic in Sept. showed book and console to district rep. and he had not realized that it did not adjust. He also offered no help. Talked to two reps at Husker Harvest Days, also unaware, also no help. Called a friend from case ih tractor division and he put me in touch with person in combine division, and I believe they are looking in to this and other issues. I have several case #s with Max Service, months old no reply. Dealer is also frustrated with assist. I agree that if the right people are informed they want to make customer happy. Problem is those people are hard to contact, both for the dealer and customer. If dealer has a poor district rep., dealer and customer are on there own. Dealers are reluctant to go over district rep. because of feer of revenge from district reps. who may get admonished but rarely fired.
thanks for well wishes. Crop is large but weather is crappy.
