Thought I would have sat. to do a few of my own things. The neibor called me friday night... said he had a problem...lol. I have seen this happen from time to time on these combines. This combine had the heavy duty axle also. The farmer is 40 acres of corn and done for the year.......guess that's how it goes.

WOW, that sucks. I guess I will go up to the farm tomarrow and check for cracks or signs of fatigue in ours. We have a lot of hilly terain and a lot of weight gets shifted to the rear axle when pulling up the hills, plus we have only a 4 row head to offset the weight over the front axle.

That is sure a clean combine. Here in western Il. the only way to tell the brand of combine is by the shape. They are all covered with black dust from the rotten stalks and mold and etc.

I have seen several down in the front this year this is the first rear one, is this just a "Case" of too much weight and speed in the rough stuff? never been around the new machines and am curious? cnt

Ouch, I have heard of that happening. Do you have any idea if it is a fresh break or if the broken area show previous
stress cracks. Rod.

WOW! Now that would wreck anyone's day. Words could hardly describe how a person would feel the moment that happened.

A few years back my brother had his JD 7720 do the same thing combining beans. It dropped all the way down onto the chopper, took out the chaff spreader too. It was a yellow cab with early type rear axle. It showed fatigue cracking, replaced with one out of the salvage yard and back in business.

The crew I worked with ran 8 early 2388's like that one till they had a little over 6000 hours each and none of them did that. We must have been lucky cause they were not babied by any means. I always thought they were a tough combine but anything can break. Jim

I used to work on them and for us they were more common than breaking a front axle/final drive. We didn't have a lot of 1400 series around and the ones we had were braced in the front end to prevent the situation CNT had a pic of. Almost all the late 1600 series to the later 2300 series we would put a rear axle brace in and never would have a problem. Some we didn't do, such as the guys that wouldn't put extensions on or run draper headers etc. (We don't have but a few corn heads in this area)

tractor 300 I know what you're saying, usally the combines are filthy. I would guess the dry year had something to do with it.

Nutty, The grain bin extension can't help the cause, but the rear axle center section just should have been made heavier. I told the farmer we should put a 1370 front axle under it.lol

Rod, I looked close at it and it may have been starting to crack at the bottom last year. A couple years ago a farmer called me over to his 1440 that broke the front axle like Case Nutty posted.

I have heard on occasion a overstressed 1440 or 1640 would do that, I'll keep my fingers crossed, Rod.
