I would like to here your good experiences with your Case IH combines. In particular, I would like to hear from from 1st year owners of 130 series, 140 series and 230 series operators. Please write a note reply/Comment below and tell me what you like. Then click the submit box.
What is your new model combine and what did it replace?
What kind of increase in productivity did you get?
If you would, please list the crop you were in, bushels per hour, or MPH/head size, yield — That would be awesome. Also, let us know what state/providence you are from.
I know what these machines can do, I want to compare notes with what other operators feel. Your information would be very useful. Thank your for your time!

I’m in the UK and a 6140 X-Flow has just arrived. It replaces a 18 year old Claas Dominator 108. We should start Canola in 3-4 weeks time, then Wheat, Peas and Linseed. It’s going to make harvest quite a different experience. I’ll let you know how we get on. Thanks for sharing your knowledge on here.
I have owned several different axial flow combines, a 1440, 1680, 2388, 7010, and a 7120. They have all been used for small grain harvest. We raised durum as one of the small grain crops, and the rotor threshing allowed for a clean sample without cracking the kernels. I was nice to see how the combines improved the settings, allowing settings to be changed from the cab while harvesting. I liked the change on the 7010 and 7120 for changing the concaves. It could be done in 30 minutes.
