Best combine in soft/wet conditions
Which combines are good in soft/wet ground and which are not?
What has been your experience?
The worst I`ve experienced was an old 2wd New Holland TR 95 with a 30 ft header and 30.5/32 bias tyres. It would go down like the titanic as soon as it even sniffed a soft spot.
The 2wd John Deere 9760 (35 ft draper) we had in the same field, quite strangely considering it`s increased weight, fared considerably better. Horsepower may have had a bit to do with that and maybe weight balance. Maybe the TR 95 had too much of it`s weight on the front axle?
I`ve been told that the older IH rotarys 1480-2388) are pretty good in soft conditions. Anyone agree with that?
Opportunity doesn't knock! It presents it'self when you beat down the door!
