Funny really how when you take all the tin-work off these combines the basic chassis of a New Holland hasn't changed after all these years.....Did your combine have a rotary seperator after the rear beater?....or did that come with the 1540S?
Do you reckon you'll ever upgrade your 8070s?....to something like a couple of TF78s?....high output machines - if you don't bother too much about the straw & people seem to regard them as reliable.

Several years ago I had a rare opportunity to go to the New Holland plant for a look round. This rare little thing was in their visitors centre - one of the first Clayson (as it was then) MZ combines from the 1950s from the days when the corn went in sacks, not in to trailers......ooof hard work, thank heavens for progress!!!

Hi Richard, You're right about the baggers being harder work than bulkers. At least the Clayson in your picture looks like it stored the full sacks on a platform ready to drop onto a trailer, many just had a chute to drop the full bags onto the ground. It was then no fun heaving them up off the ground onto a trailer !

there a good basic and reliable design,i guess thats why not much has changed,and thats
why i,m keeping them,and no plans for an upgrade,the 8070 are fairley bullet proof,i was,nt
sure if our 1540 had a second beater so i looked up the spec sheet for the Clayson S1540
and the clayson 1540,and aparently they both had one listed as beater behind the drum as you can see.

Those 80 series seem to last forever.....as you say good old mechanical controls.....Are they Fiat or Merc motors?

Surprisingly enough when you get under the skin of some of the newer CSX & CX machines you can still see some chassis similarities

:lol: would,nt it just,just dug out this old 1972 price list when i bought that 1540
the price is before discount,and wheat at £35 ton,at todays wheat price £110 ton
a new combine should be under £20,000 and not over £100,000 shit that dont add up :dizzy:

Interesting find there Roly :thumbs_up:

Mind you if you compare spec. for spec. it would be slightly different, although at the time the New Hollands were cutting edge technology.....as they still are nowadays ;) ;) ;)

http://agriculture.newholland.com/uk/en/WNH/whoweare/Pages/alonghistory.aspx

I can recall coming home to work on father's farm in May '83 when we sold barley for 110 pound a ton, beef was 1.10 per kg at market and diesel only cost about 8p a litre

Commodity prices have remained low when the cost of production has climbed over the recent years. Mind you I was reading somewhere the other day that commodity prices are set to go up, without being glib in the current situation but father says that farming usually does well in a recession
The fact that (hate the word) farming has been subsidised has meant that the consumers have bought food at an artifically low price and producers never chased after the full market value
