Looks good, I'm guessing 60 bushel more capacity?

Corn in dry land western ND runs around 100bu and this year its averaging 120bu, my cart driver is struggling to keep up. How in the world do you guys cut 200bu corn in the corn belt? Two carts per combine? Four semi's per combine?

nice extension just wondering what it will do to the axle load if your corn is almost dry with a heavy bushel weight

I've seen 500 bushel hoppers on lexions and haven't heard of any problems.

First off thanks to seedcleaner for getting the pics up for me. Yes you need to fold the tip ups down before you fold the factory extension. Pull a pin on each side fold it up so it looks like third picture on front and back of factory extension pin it and your done, can be done in about 2 min. The tip ups are below the height of the fill auger so if you can clear it with auger up the tip ups clear also height wise. I'm guessing 60 bushel at least.

In North central Iowa its hard to find a combine without added capacity in the grain tank area. Our goal was to be able to go 1/2 mile breaking a field open with 12 row head in 200 by corn.

Yes I would be Interested in making them would like to get 4 or 5 lined up because I would need to make a jig to build these on. I basically built this on the combine.

Any more questions fire away.
