The 7140 handled the 40' well. Switched machines halfway thru and the second machine had a 45' and it handled it fine as well. Capacity was limited to roughly 30 ton/hr, but from talking to others, the wheat was threshing extra hard this year and especially the varieties we were in. Mark was up north on heavy irrigated wheat hitting over 50 ton/hr in some conditions. Would not want anything smaller than a 40' Machine went well with no breakdowns. Some nicer features on the flagship machines and the 72 was running a little nicer sample with probably a bit more capacity in most conditions but the 71 wasn't bad. I do think the feederhouse is too small for the capacity of the machine. It makes a bit of a racket under load. Also wish they'd put the same unloading auger on the 140's as the flagships have.

This has me intrigued... does it involve monopoly money and strippers with fake boobs? Perhaps a rubber chicken?
adsinaus and joeltractor like this.

Don't blame the baker when the butcher bakes the bread.
