Well to each his own. I've never seen a case head sweep the ground or flex better than a deere,there are even some farmers around here that have ran 930's on their 2388s & some of those same farmers want the deere 600 hydra-flex on the 8010, so go figure. When we are done cutting a crop,it seems like someone has been out in the field with a broom. I' ve never like the case heads, & have never liked the short feederhouse on the earlier Case combines...made the head to close to the cab...glad they fixed that with the 8010's. but to each his own...both are good machines though..hey I like the 8010... a little.... Merry Christmas everyone!!!
