ts agri power

Anyone runing one or anything else on a john deere combine? A family member has been asking me for some info. Mainly wants a little more power but is really interested in fuel savings from one? Any info is appreciated.

I have spoke to the TS people for a chip for our combine and the way I understand it is engine specific or fuel system specific I am not 100% for sure though I never asked about fuel savings but also you know that is not relavant to us we farm 3000 acres of corn and are constantly expanding and adding more acres every year and we do not believe in no till. So I never asked about the fuel savings we were wanting to start running a 12 row on our combine instead of the 8 row. This is just my opinion but your best bet is to contact them for your needs and see what they offer sorry if I was not much help all they told me was that the farmers were seeing a mile to a mile and a half more ground speed in the field with out lugging the machine. By the way we are currently running a 9650STS

S_B, you're less than an hr from me. Cut through Buda everyone in a while.

There are two things you'll want to watch with the 9650/9660 and a 12 row head and fueling box. Feederhouse drive belt slippage/feederhouse reverser drive and exceeding the clean grain elevator capacity. Picked nearly 3000bu/hr of corn, when the going gets good. Can keep 3 semis and a 1000 bu cart busy. Have bent a few parts because of it before. The chain and adjuster is hurt first. Something to see the elevator sheet metal swelled out a bit. I did that with an 893 8-row corn head and only running 5-7 mph. Run as fast a 8.5 on the flat and crappy corn before.

If you haven't already, get the heavier feederhouse drive belt tensioner bracket. MUCH heavier. You WILL bend the original (Ask me how I know.). If your combine doesn't have an oil cooler under the feederhouse for the reverser, get it. Don't forget to use synthetic oil in the reverser. Will run quite a bit cooler and not get burnt as easily. As I'm sure you know, the knife rolls take some horsepower and put a LOT of strain on the head and drive systems. Not so much in dry corn, but the green stalks are tough. Esp. if you have Bt corn.
