  • Fellas, just wanted to share my experiences having worked with these machines in the late 90s and in to early 2000s for Case IH out in the former Soviet countries .........the cab post bolts (15:00) have popped out pretty much since the early days, the cab is not well enough supported and this pings the heads off them, there were a few modifications to rectify this but it kind of lived with the machine - maybe a run of weld would help :-) . There was some talk that the gas accumulator wasn't set up and working correctly (on the l.h. chassis frame) but don't think it ever made that much difference, we tended to think that hard driving with high tyre pressures over rough roads and fields didn't help matter. Here in UK they will sometimes change the 3rd concave from small wire to large wire in high yielding cereals.....we used to change the hyd oil cooler if the hydro chewed up rather than flush out.....shaker shoe rails will also break up as well....bit of a weak design. The big wrench also has a socket head on it to test slip the feeder clutch....I have heard that some folks will fit a 2nd rotor belt and cable-tie it up to the adjustable block to make changing a bit quicker, but not sure there's enough room with a chopper gearbox. Anyway.......used to love the sound of that engine at full chat and under load

  • I operated an Axial Flow in rice in the Sacramento Valley around Williams Ca. But first we had to remove the rotor to hardface all the elements on it because rice plants are very abrasive and put a lot of wear on the harvester. As a Dutchman, I was not familiar with rice production.

  • Combines are the helicopter equivalent of the agricultural industry: “One million parts rapidly rotating around a major oil leak, waiting for metal fatigue to set in.” And THANK GOD I’ve never had to touch helicopters OR combines! I’ll stick to planes, and garner respect for those that have to work on those finicky beasts!

Also about like a boat for land, if anything breaks, bring on another $thousand. How does the single rotor design compare to the New Holland twin rotor design I was seeing a lot of in the 80s?

  • And I watched a couple farming videos and said wow, this is for me for sure till you opened my eyes to the work involved. That was case, if a side by side analysis was done by the other popular kid (john deere) which would be the stronger longer lasting unit and is it possible to get through a season without one breaking down? Also, say engine has two thousand hours, what would the rest of the machine be looking at hours wise?

My old girl almost identical, never seen a rock trap on one, however, put a few stones through mine, painful. All the Case machines in our area have 4 wheel drive more for climbing hill than mud bit still necessary. Thanks again.

    Sam CyanideSam Cyanide4 oy oldin
  • that's a really in-depth video. can you send your camera crew out to the field with Kevin this fall and show what it looks like in operation? i bet guys would like to see that. he's pretty smart running older machines like that; yeah there's a lot of repairing, but they don't cost half a million dollars each. also i'm coming to borrow your light for harvest time.

    yako0000yako00004 oy oldin
  • 4500 separator hours is a pretty high hours for those machines. We had a high hour 1680. Good machine. We rebuilt most of the wear areas you pointed out. Never once replaced that rock trap bearing. Are you running your chains too tight ? FYI, chains last twice as long if they never get rusty - big saving for storing the combine in a shed. I think New Holland builds better combines than IH. TRs and CRs are pretty bullet proof. Seem to have less moving parts. Better engines too. I like 8.3s but they rev too fast and are worked too hard in a combine. No other engine application has a higher duty cycle than a combine. It's hot and dusty and the farmers push the machines to the power limit every minute they are running. "My combine has too much power." - said no farmer, ever.

    TechGuyTechGuy4 oy oldin
    • @ace mobile Yeah, the Cat 3208 wasn't a great engine in those combines. But the Ford I6 diesel and later Genesis (sp?) engines were really good. NH combines haven't changed a lot other than getting bigger and more electronics. TR96-99s are plentiful and cheap. Ditto the early CRs like the CR940. Twin rotor/single rotor, they both work. I'd give NH combines a serious look if I needed a used combine.

      TechGuyTechGuy4 oy oldin
    • I asked the question earlier how a NH twin rotor would compare to the more common single rotor setup. I remember when those came out in the 80s & all the hoopla surrounding them. But I also recall many having fits with the 3208 Cats they came with also. I used to have a detailed NH brochure that showed all the inner workings & studied that thing endless nights as a kid. I wish I still had it.

  • With all the combine manufacturers anyone have experience on other makes than case that maybe heavier built/designed more durable? So many bearings wearing out for a machine that just does harvesting.

    POLOLOUS3POLOLOUS34 oy oldin
    • “A machine that just does harvesting” imagine doing all that manually like they used to! Just harvesting lol. The amount of moving parts on these machines And the amount of work they do in a short amount of time is insane. Of course lots of stuff wears out. These are truly marvels of engineering.

      Brad VBrad V4 oy oldin
    • @Dane Glasoe True, ton of things covered in the video and he did reference the hours but did also mention some of the upgrades like added pillow blocks to some bearings and not having to replace things as often. Not cheap machines and makes me nervous with the number of things to maintain vs say an excavator/loader/tractor for example. Farmers have so many things to worry about. So many take for granted.

      POLOLOUS3POLOLOUS34 oy oldin
    • He made it sound bad but that machine has a lot of hours and has some age on it. Any combine kept in service that long will need things replaced.

  • I was doing my apprenticeship with a international dealership when these axial flows first came to Australia in the early 80s. I used to hate doing pre harvest services because you’d have to check for snakes, snakes love mice and mice love combines. I’ve had Dugites slither over me.

  • Kevin could have been speaking *any* language; I'm still none the wiser.😂 These things terrify me and, as I don't know where most of the dangerous bits are, you wouldn't get me anywhere near one if it was running. What I *did* take from the video is that even a reasonably new one of these would be a huge money pit. For a machine that costs way more than a lot of *houses* there seem to be as helluva lot of parts that fail/wear out/rot away. Even working on the machine yourself, maintenance must cost a fortune, and *lack* of maintenance will cost even more. $700 for a belt !! I don't usually pay that for a car.😂 Thanks for trying guys; a fascinating video but it just gives me more respect for the folks that run these things, and those who maintain/repair them. 👍 I think the business to be in is ....... making belts for combines. Cheers for now, Dougie.

    Jaxon 9882Jaxon 98824 oy oldin
    • It is nowhere near more time fixing than operating. But combines have a lot of moving parts and many wear items. Typically as soon as spraying is done the combine gets pulled out and gone over from front to back. Takes half the time to fix something before harvest starts than in the field during harvest.

  • What people dont know about large farms is that they typically have 2-3 full time mechanics on the job 24-7 and about 2 offsite mechanics with dealer connections ready to pick up deliver and install parts with the other mechanics. So when you drive by a massive farm with a Costco sized parking lot filled with equipment I can guarantee that a mechanic is working on 5-7 pieces of equipment at the same time while the others are in service.

    13ecker13ecker4 oy oldin
    • Wheres that??? Very few farms round here have even 1 mechanic I'm farming 20k ac myself Do my own work and use the dealer if required Neighbours one side are corperates 30kac they dont have any mechanics and none thats mechanically inclined Beyond greasing everything is though the dealer My cousins are on 90kac Thsy have 1 full time mechainc Think you'll find most farms just have people doing maintenence during the quiet season and they farm for the rest of the year Usually no official training just farmers learning on the job Or like my cousins 1 trained guy and loads of machine operators that help with grunt work when they have time off from driving Most farms round here are 10 to 20kac No UZworld farmers have mechanic's Theyre just self trained and get hints from the dealer I'm trained heavy deisel mechainc just because I did an apprenticeship out of school but no one else I know did that We're just famrers firstt and do mechainc work on off time
