I have an 8820 with the large planetary hubs. Can I put it on a 1994 9600? It looks like the axle can stay, just need to bolt the assembly on to end of axle. Don't know about tierod, steer cyl, or plumbing.
Idk it might work,
but for gods sake we've been trying to switch the back tires off our 9600 from 14.9s to 18.4s sounds easy right? Everything has to be stubborn we tryed jackin it up and puttin them on but the spindle rubs on the rim. So we got some custom spacers made to space the rim 1 inch farther from the tie rod and now its rubbing on the rim still but on another spot. So about week and $1500 into it and our combine still has no back tires.
Have done it...do it again???? Depends, are you cutting beans or just corn and wheat? The 8820 axle sits lower on the spindle than the 9600 so it drops the rear end of the combine. If your cutting beans then it messes with your cutter bar angle.
Have to use the 9600's end for the steering cylinder, the rest is 8820 [smaller than 9600]. Plumbing is all the same. Bolt patterns are the same.
