These machines really have me interested, we currently run two JD's a 9610 and a 9500, we are disappointed in both of them really but especially the 9610. The capacity is not real good, and the job it does is fairly frustrating to deal with.

I'm trying to get my head around how big these Case IH's are and was wondering if I could get some comparisons. I am located in the Pacific NW and we raise Soft white wheat, we can range from 115 BU all the way up to 160 BU depending on the year and soil. How many acres an hour would the 8010 do in these conditions?

We also raise Corn and can range from 180 bu up to 300 bu again depending on conditions and soil. How many acres an hour?

This is all high desert irrigated land, either by center pivot or gravity.

7.2 MPH IN 180 BU CORN!!!!!!!!
Soooooooo what your saying is that my 8 row 30" corn head in 200-250 average corn is going to starve an 8010?

Tell me about the wheat, what kind of speed could we get with a 30' head in 130 BU wheat?

Are those 12 Row 22" or 30"?

Not an 8010 expert.....but the guy I work with every day is well on his
way to being one. And I get to watch one close up during harvest.
Also have .....shall we say a few
pictures of the 8010 in action.
Trust me.....it would eat either of your green ones for breakfast.
Put it in some of your 100 bu plus wheat and you better have a bunch
of truck power lined up.

98j....your pictures are awsume! Do you only take pics on the perfect harvest days or are they all like that? Clear skys, little wind and it dosn't look like it's real hot, temp wise. Here in Kansas when we have a decent harvest (not this year), you might get one or two perfect harvest days and the rest are beastly HOT with a south wind blowing about 40mph! You have a problem keeping the wheat in the header and when ya unload, you hope all the grain gets in the truck bed.
Are these pics from this years harvest or last year? I would guess you are in full swing of harvest at this time or is it too early yet?

Hey Trackman....no the day's are not all perfect...we haven't got
much cut since last Thursday...a few sprinkles sent the moisture
up and sent the elevator boys into a whining, sniveling fit. Maybe
tomorrow. But we do have a lot of real nice harvest days. I shoot
the good with the bad....this day ended not long after I took this
shot:



As for the pictures above....the one with Mt Hood is from last year,
all the rest are from 2005.....all of the pictures in the "Kirby" thread
are from this year......and here are some more of the 8010 from
this year:
