Unfortunately I have seen a few go up in smoke, but we have
never had one burn up. I'm w/Miller, I hope this guy has a
good insurance company.:-)

Re: Hotcombine
Whoever is saying Red Rules, Get a Grip. You certianly are a
very sympathetic invididual. We lost a 2388 last year due to
a fire & its an experience you would never ever want to go
through again. Our driver was lucky to get out alive.

Re: Hotcombine
Yeah we had a farmer in my area who had a Gleaner R-52 catch
fire while he was in the cab combining beans a couple of
years back. He smelled the smoke, and stopped. He had to
jump out of his machine, didn't even have time to climb down
the ladder. Just had to jump straight out of it. Thankfully
he was not hurt, and his insurance allowed him to get a
brand new R-52 after his burned up. But a VWRY scary moment
for him.

Re: Hotcombine
I figured he would be happy the Gleaner burnt and bought a
real combine with his insurance money !

Re: Hotcombine
Matt have you ever seen a case burn? it is not just deeres
that burn. why do people have to pick on deere so much?

Re: Hotcombine
They gots to pick on deeres cause they can't face the fact
that they rule! The only reason stuff happens to deeres is
because deeres ar being used while cases are homw in the
shed.

Re: Hotcombine
Actually Matt was talking about Gleaners, because I said I
know a guy who had a Gleaner that burned up 2 years ago, and
he had to jump out the cab. He wasn't picking on Deeres. You
buy combines on preference, because they are all good, it's
just what you want, not what the neighbor down the street
has. I like the Gleaner because it is simple and doesnt have
all those moving parts like Deeres and Cats do, not starting
a color war, just stating facts.

Re: Hotcombine
Does anyone happen to the name of the farmer/cutter that
lost this machine? The white Ford truck and the 9650 with
the draper head look the same outfit that cut for us down
here in Wichita, KS.

Re: Hotcombine
Not that is says a lot, but it does sort of look like
Kansas, and I'm from -Ta town too. But seriously, y'all,
the only difference between equipment is the person who
maintains it. You can spend $200 grand on a combine,
header, and insurance and run it into the ground, or buy a
nice used machine and keep it running in top condition for
the life of the farmer. IH, Deere, Gleener, or Cat, the
only thing that makes one combine better than another is how
well they're maintained and maintenanced.

Re: Hotcombine
I don't understand how this can happen to a brand new
combine? What was the cause of the fire?
Once I saw a combine burning myself, but that was an old
model, and there the cause was an overheated engine.

Re: Hotcombine
i agree with Jason on this one..
Also a big factor..the way you run your combine and the
performance of it, maybe you neighbour runs a JD and can do
10 acres more in a day, but he might do a shit job treshing
and cleaning while you with your case, gleaner or whatever
kind do a good job treshing and cleaning..
the bottom line.. everybody that has a combine must be happy
with the machine he has otherwise he would have bought
something else..its just the farmers preference, colour dont
matter, the all do the same thing, cut and tresh, and clean.

Re: Hotcombine
Hey if you think about it you know allmost all com bines are
made of mostly plastic now days so they are bound to burn. I
am a deere man but I will say you will never find a burned
Gleaner because they are made of METAL
