We can't keep anything from you guys can we!!! Anyways, the Tribine is a new combine prototype built by Ben Dillon. The Tri comes with merging a combine (reaping and threshing) along with a grain cart. These are pictures of the functioning prototype.
I did most of the design for the rear module, shielding, and other non-Agco parts of the combine. It is very impressive!!! The combine capacity is 1000 bushels, and will unload in under 2 minutes. It is also all-wheel drive and articulates in the center and at the rear axle too. The turn radius is extremely small (smaller than most Deere's or Gleaner's), and backing up is very convenient, as the rear axles can steer the whole machine.
We just put up our website:y www.tribine.com
. It has several videos of it in operation, along with some features and specifications. We will be unveiling the Tribine at the Ag Connect Expo on the 29th, and I invite everyone to come out a see it.
The large capacity and short unload time will allow for the Tribine to spend more time harvesting, and greatly reduce field traffic. Also, you can lower labor costs and cut grain cart drivers.
I have worked with several Ag companies in the past, and Ben Dillion is visionary. He kept us striving for the best in all categories (unload time, capacity, length, weight, speed, unload height & length, etc), and would not compromise on performance.
I hope all of you come see it at the Ag Connect expo or another trade show.
