Cruise pilot

New to us 760 with cruise pilot. Have watched Claas instructional videos; all works well with feederhouse depth measurement, but is the grain loss over sieves and rotor really used to correct speed? Can't tell that it does even with sensitivity set really high and showing large loss - is the lag so long that it is not useful?

Is it set for losses or maximum throughput? I think there is a third option I never use too.

Fixed speed cruise, Iíve never used it either.
Iíll bet his is just on throughput, losses not considered.

That's it. If I want fixed speed then I just don't move the handle...lol

Set on throughput I believe. Definitely slows down for depth in feederhouse. Will look to see if there is another setting for losses; on video looked like automatically used losses when set on throughput. I know you have all moved on to CEMIS auto

Turn the right dial to 9 o'clock. The cebis will tell you what's limiting the harvest speed in the middle. Max speed, feederhouse depth or losses from sieves or rotors. In my Lexion 660 it's usually the walker losses.
If you use throughput with losses you can set the limits on the left dial on 10 and 11 o'clock. If you choose throughput just adjust the feederhouse depth with the knob for the right dial.

I hope I got the positions correct. Haven't used cruise pilot since my demo ran out at the beginning of harvest.

If you have Cemos automatic they told us they are now recommending to run on throughput. If not cemos then run on max throughout with losses

Maybe they learned from you.

I doubt that.
Iíve tried using loss considerations, it just turns the combine to an unnecessary dog based on drop pan tests on all residue, (all the straw and all the chaff).
