Re: cotton harvesting equipment

I'm trying to figure out what that double set of mirrors is for but I've given up.
Kiley?

Re: cotton harvesting equipment

Don, on our cotton strippers it's a triple set. One for each important part of the machine (most of the time) Ours view the shute, the back tires and the side rail on the basket. Kiley how many machines do yall run?

Re: cotton harvesting equipment

I've never seen a builder with its own engine. I like that. What tractor fo you use to pull it? Why not just use the tractors pto??

Good luck stripping. Around here its all spindle picked except for a few hundred broadcast acres. That didn't go over too well but there's still a few acres out there.

Re: cotton harvesting equipment

I filled out a card to get info on cotton pickers at John Deere show. I was serious, I wanted to learn about cotton pickers.
This is the closest I've got. Thank you.
O, that show was about 40 years ago. Guess the Canadian branch of JD has limited trade in cotton pickers.

Re: cotton harvesting equipment

jace im from dumas tx north of amarillo

riceman we use a jd 4840 to pull one builder and the other one we havent figured it out just yet we have engines on the front of the builder to keep the tractor hours down and its more efficent the tank on the side of the builder is like 20 gallons we can run two full days on one tank you think about it that 10 gallons a day with diesel at 2.60 thats only 26 dollars a day to operate it compared to how much a tractor would burn in a day running at 1300 rpm all day long

Re: cotton harvesting equipment

kiley, where are you in texas? I'm from lubbock. We run 2 '07 60's and a 7445. Three buggies on a 4840, 8420 and an 8110, and Three kbh builders on two 8120's and a 4640. It's pretty funny when we divide our crew up because the new and the old split.
