    There used to be one locally and I think it was for small grains/chaff.

    Did you change the combine? 4t at your ease john, dont those class combines make grain in a similar way that the fendt tractors produces diesel?

    Correct, it was on the returns, could bag for feed, I remember as a young lad doing this on an Active combine!



    Not at the moment anyway DP, while good that one is quite expensive and spares???

    You can get spares through mf, but you still want a combine breakers that have a few, I'd be going for a very common machine, for good parts availability.

    Byrne's of Ballytarsna had a few up there a few years ago but mainly the smaller 950's.

    I doubt MF would have too many spares for these to be honest!

    Yep, you're probably better off with a NH or Claas tbh.

    They had a few parts years ago but not sure of late.

    No a NH TX66 or some of the TX range - only produced for a few years.;)

    Probably sold new by John Maher of The Bush, Dunshaughlin, Co, Meath. Main dealer for David Brown, Case and then CaseIH. He sold many IH and Case IH combines over the years :thumbup2:

    Has anyone retrofitted a grain loss monitor? Thinking strongly of fitting one to the combine as the factory case item is a bit harmless and lots of false reading:thumbdown:

    Any recommendation on what to go for?

    as nash says, its a TX,

    fundamental difference was they were polish built, where as the TX's wer ein Zedelgem, belgium.

    good enough little combine but was clearly not of the same quality of a tx out of the factory, they used for no reason to snap cross shafts. i wore a sledge out changing them in 04/05

    fitted a part from a tx (yes different part numbers) and never a problem again,

    TX68+ was equivalent to a cT5080, its all we sold.

    A rds unit is very good , have them on both combines on walker and seizes , man in Wexford does them and is very reasonable . His name just won't come to me ( I can picture him , Jesus I hate when it's on the tip of ur tongue )
