Hmmmm, if it can separate snow from wheat without freezing of the sieves or gumming up all them fancy sensors to adjust for losses the only problem we will have to do is figure out a dryer that is up to the challenge!

Apparently the local dealer is getting one Friday. Doesn't help with the corn guys, but perhaps we get to see what it will do in the less than Ideal conditions that we have this fall

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

Let us know what you find out. I wish they had more of them in the field this fall. From the sounds of it there is hardly any of them in North America.

Hopefully this is not the agricultural equivalent of a skyscraper index.

The Skyscraper Index is a whimsical concept put forward by Andrew Lawrence, a property analyst at Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein, in January 1999, which showed that the world's tallest buildings have risen on the eve of economic downturns.

Oh, in that case indeed, hopefully not!
Actually makes sense after a little knowledge is gained.

Was told a large operation in eastern Kansas went to western North Dakota to see it's performance in wheat, came back unimpressed! Apparently when it is pushed, starts dumping wheat out the back. To collect JD or Case customers is going to be a real stretch, let alone breaking away the Lexion base from Cat dealers. Wouldn't bank on the competition resting their laurels while AGCO is still trying to get this monster to work.

I'm kinda confused about what you are after here? First you ask if anyone has seen one and then proceed to mis-label and bash just about everything to do with AGCO and Claas whilst saying a Versatile combine will have more performance and resale! Then you distribute some coffee shop anecdotal info about someone who saw it "dump" grain out the back three states away....

See how this looks? If you just hate AGCO and want to bash them then just be up front about it...

And the skyscraper index applies to much of agriculture right now, if this combine happens to work the way it should it will be a lesser example of the craziness of equipment costs.
