changing combine

Great combine,bought ours new in 2010,never missed a beat,replaced a lexion which was a good combine also until you had to buy spares for it,NH a lot cheaper running costs and doesn't throw the grain out the back like most of the local lexions seem to.

Bought a 2009 one last year to do 2 farms replacing 2 smaller combines. Not run a NH before and were really pleased with it. 50 acres a day comfortably and never cut much after 9 pm due to limited drying facilities.

Perhaps something like...... a CX820, be a better size??
Now you mention it....!

Nah, the OP is looking at CX8000 series combines.....so a CX8060/CX8070 would be the logical step for a 6-walker machine. Unless you need a narrower body I'd always opt for the 6 walker nowadays. I walked away from a mint CX8040 last year partly for that reason. The tyres are the widest part anyway so may as well have the larger insides too.
 
Neighbour who cuts all of my crops had a 05 reg CX840 6walker 20ft Cracking Machine finally sold it privately to then find a 08 year low hour
CX8070 24ft Vari-Feed but 99% the same combine apart from bigger Common rail Engine.
cut 750ac this season roughly with it & on a whole it went well
Both was on 900 fronts & 540 rears & they need all that rubber if conditions are softer.
He has found he is cutting about same forward speed but just gaining roughly 5ac a day poss a little more with the header.
They have there issues but on a whole very capable machines & wouldnt have anything else.
Did look at new one but yeeessshhh unless your planning on cutting 1500ac its not even an option to consider
I think it was just over double the cost of the 10yr old one
We need a bigger Cap because of the limited weather windows where we are & it makes all the difference

You might also consider a CX6080. This is more similar to a TX 66 (more like a TX68 in reality, which is why the numbers are so similar).
It uses many parts that were on the TX series but far more efficiently.
If you can't do at least 50 acres a day with it, you aren't driving it fast enough.
Probably cheaper to buy too.
 
apart from lots of things the Steering lock on these CX combines is like a London Taxi even with 540 rear tyres, rear axle set right out poss for stability but doesnt affect usage in any way, keep an eye on the inner hub/bearing caps there buggers for popping out

Written by Agriland Team

A cow that escaped from her field when rural walkers left a gate open had to be put down after slipping on concrete and injuring herself, local police in the English county of Cheshire have reported.

The incident happened in Shotwick, according to Cheshire Police Rural Crime Team, which has issued a warning on the matter.

Commenting yesterday, Tuesday, August 11, PCSO Makin, of the rural crime team, said: “Today I’ve been to visit a farm in the Shotwick area after the farmer reported a gate being left open multiple times on a footpath that runs through their farm.

This has resulted in cows getting on to the nearby road and slipping on the concrete; sadly...
