They do trap snow and conserve moisture. I bought a new cvs32 a year before the wet cycle started here 8 or 9 years ago and fought with mud and straw mat daily so sold it and it quit raining so thinking about getting another one. On 40 to 60 durum Second gear stick full forward in most conditions with a class 7 I grew some Sadash that went near 100 same speed. If straw is tough or a bit green and seed is ready which it can be I could burn up a not cheap VS belt or break shear bolts on stripper so that would limit forward speed. Not sure how the newer models are driven if they have same drives those wide models might give grief in tougher conditions. If you grow flax you won’t find a better method of harvesting it it is definitely a good flax header. A negative if you have a healthy deer population you will have a population explosion as they love to hide out in stripped cereal straw and shed their horns there tire repair gets really costly. I hope you have tracks on your lex and seeding outfit.
