We don't grow barley but we will be combining a bit of barley for our neighbor and I'm kind of wondering how fast I should target travelling. I expect the crop to make about 120 bushels per acre. It will be picking up a 52 foot swath.

Based on an expected combine capacity of 2200 bushel per hour in barley I'm comming up with 2.9 mph. Does 2200 bu/hr seem like a good bu/hr target for barley. Or should I set the feader depth to 120 and let cruise pilot figure it out?

A lot depends on the crop and how much MOG there is. 2200bu/hour would be close to the upper end of capacity for us before losses get too much or the pickup has to run too fast for the ground speed. We have never combined a 52' swath so it's hard to say

Yes he is planning to double swath..... might be more like 50' depending on how much overlap he sets.

Just finished 105 bu barley with 740. Did that 1800-2000 bu/hr all day. Very little out back. 4.2 mph on 35’. Wide body will not have a problem doing it. 2.9 will be right. Rotor loss showed up first because straw was a bit tough.

As was mentioned it will really depend how much straw is there. Here I would be throwing out 5 bushels an acre to get 2200 bushels/hr.

Good point Twix. It also depends on the bushel weight. If you have light kernels and lots of straw it can be hard to seperate. That is what we found in our durum wheat this year with the very light kernels and lots of straw.

So what settings were you using and what sensitivity did you have the grain loss monitor set to? I would sure like to get that type of capacity all day long. Would really put a smile on my face after the snails pace in peas.
