There needs to be a new company category - TRIBINE added to the Harvesting Forum section.

Also at the Husker Harvest Days show in Grand Island, NE Sept 13 - 15. It has many unique features including twin engines, OHAI system, 1000 bu. graintank, articulated frame, compound steering, joystick steering, improved header visibilty via expanded glass floor area..

Yes, they are being built in Newton. "Limited availability" for 2017.... expect around 10 units for 2017. It might become a Kubota Tribine. Prototypes are painted Orange and Black, as Kubota colors. Kubota recently bought Kansas based Great Plains / Land Pride product line. This would help Kubota expand their Ag line in North America. Kubota also has several other aggressive projects related to Ag markets. The Versatile Tractors and Combine are not their only option.

Kubota being involved might be interesting. Isn't the base for the Tribine a S series gleaner? Or has that changed? I wonder how Agco would respond?

I'm surprised at the single point articulation joint, a lot of forces there!

Sure hope production units look different in this respect.
We had a saying at one shop I worked at once and my thoughts when I saw unit in Kansas City --- "M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S -E"

Saw some youtube vids on those. hope they get some thrashing capacity out of the newer ones. The 8row corn head at 3mph is not very impressive.

So the chopper just pounds straw/product at the grain tank all day? I can imagine what that will look like after a couple hundred hours not to mention several years. Why so complicated? They could get the same maneuverability if they axed the articulated steering and just make it four wheel steer. Giant hunk of iron for class 7 capacity isn't gonna cut it in todays world.

Maybe we just need a general combine category to post it. I doubt the Tribine will really generate that much discussion on its own, at least enough to warrant its own sub-forum. Even Versatile doesn't really generate much traffic on that sub forum. Tends to mostly be posts about versatile tractors, which is kind off-topic there.
