Saw that, likewise thought it was an interesting way to approach it/went against convention. Any idea of what rated HPs are then?

No, but 5 to 7% spread about typical.

Ah, found it, page 23:

564/647. HP.
NA specs I think.
Wonder if the bigger power rated/max spread (14.7%) is more cushion for the super fast unloading?

Speaking of wide spreads, note the 3600/850 chopper speeds.
Slow must be corn only.

The Bigger Massey

I read this article today. There is an Ideal 10 coming. It says it will have 790 hp from a 16.2l MAN engine. There will be a redesigned cleaning system, under the dual Helix rotors and it will be joystick control, as in NO steering wheel. Should be ready for the harvest in 2021

Statistics are like a Bikini. What they reveal is suggestive, but what they conceal, is vital.

No steering wheel that is so stupid. I don't care how good the machine is I will never buy one. If that fu***ng joy stick works like they do in video games I would have one bent up combine.

I wonder how many of us older farmers would have better backs if we weren't hanging onto a steering wheel most of our lives
Snipe and kevlar like this.

Thatís what most all the Cat grader operators said once now 99% of them wonít go back to the wheel.

I understand what you are saying SK Farmer and thought that exact thing to at one time, look how many farms are getting skid steers, most now are sold with one joystick for driving/turning. Or how many farmers have a joystick to control their ag loaders on their big tractors, theyíve trained one hand to be as gentle as one hand pushing pulling at old hyd levers, or one hand to do work of two and possibly one foot in there to creep ahead toward something or under something!
I though 6-8 years ago wouldnít it be nice to get rid of steering console all together so combiner can get FULL view of table while combining straight or pickup, possibly catch something before going into combine also. Always those couple blind spots right in front of you while sitting back. Now with auto steer and grain carts steering wheel is only held on to for less then 20% of the hours we put on in a year anyways. Just my two cents on this.

I don't think its 99%. Our rm has one of each and the guys all like the steering wheel. Cat is making the steering wheel optional again so that tells me way more than the odd driver wanted it back.
