Re: JD 8820 harvester
From the vaults these ones JCB (LOL).

I know a farmer / contractor here that has one of these + a 7720. Are pretty knocked about now but still do quite alot of work on their own farms + some contracting (cereals, canola & grass seed mostly).

Yes TC, photographed over 20 years ago, 1984 I think.
Well polished up.
It still looks like it could be a current model. :-D

From this show, it went into harvest on trials for UK conditions.

It must have had problems handling our crops. It was never to be seen again. :-\

Re: JD 8820 harvester
Ok,

I dont know if they are much good. The guy I know looks like he puts a fair bit of grain over the back but maybe that is the operator, not the combine?

Re: JD 8820 harvester
I remember looking in the back of this machine. The grain pan floor is very different to anything I had seen before.

Lots of longitudinal augers to pull the grain down to the cross auger. I will have to ask the JD deler who was involved, although the staff there have either moved on or retired since this pic was took :-\

Re: JD 8820 harvester
There were alot of the 7720's, less 8820's in the estern Midwest. There is still one running in the county I live in. It still looks good and eats a lot of acres. There was an advertisement once showing one running next to a IH Rotor. The birds were following the John Deere. I know IH guys would call them feed grinders. I never heard any complaints from the owners of them though?

Re: JD 8820 harvester
This guy here that has the 8820 & 7720 is a bit of a speed merchant, so maybe it is just the operators who are driving too fast & putting the grain over the back.

These are the only 7720 & 8820's that I have seen here in Tassie. The 9600 / 9610 are more popular in terms of JD combines used here.
