I was picking up swathed cereals that had rain on them this afternoon and I really noticed the fluctuating engine load in that. Probably would be different with something with more than 290hp, but still it was very noticeable. I didn't remember that when running the 580R in swaths. Maybe an APS in front with a rotary separator behind would make a wicked walker machine. Don't let Deere read that though, they might have to copy it!
