Re: Acres per hour

Interesting question, but what crop? what part of the country? dryland or irrigated? there are so many variables to this one....

Re: Acres per hour

Just looking for an average over all acres. But if you want me to narrow it down, canadian prairies, working with cereals and oilseeds.

Re: Acres per hour

With my 9770 in 30' of crop, I'll average between 10 and 15 acres per hour. Again, it is totally dependent on conditions such as fields, good windrowing, lodged grain etc.

Re: Acres per hour

Looking for an over all average. Just average it out over one or two years and that should cover conditions and different crops.

Re: Acres per hour

How about bu./hr. does that make it easier? Conditions are still a factor but not as much in my opinion.

Re: Acres per hour

9600 with 30' swaths, wheat (50 bu), oats(120 bu), barley(70 bu), canola(40 bu), over the season average about 10 acres per separator hour. Do the math on bu/hr.

Acres per hour

Would like to know how many acres per hour guys are getting on there machines. More curious on the bigger machines, like the 9870's, and 9860's, but would like to see all to compare. Thanks.

Re: Acres per hour

Conditions and different crops are a factor, that's why i've asked to average it out over the year.I'm not asking what the most you have ever combined per acre.

Re: Acres per hour

9870...5 mph avg...21 acres/hr (35' straight cut, 36' swaths)
For every mph faster or slower decrease the acres/hr by 4
Average year, 5 mph is a good average.
