Any one get an actual measurement of a full/overflowinng grain tank in bushels? One with hydraulic folding cover. With wheat.
I asked the case IH rep at big iron this very question when we still had 20 series case combines. I believe at the time the deere and case were rated approx the same, but deere was WAY faster. He said that deere rates their unload speed on average rate from totally full to totally empty. Case on the other hand rates on maximum unload rate (full hopper) I told him that that was BS and that there is no reason for them to be inferior on something like this. His answer was that the 30 series are much better (they are) but that they are NOT faster than the deere even though they are rated faster. I believe he said that you can change a sprocket on the class 7 and 8 so that the unload rate is the same as a 9230.Well, I've unloaded over 200,000 bu of wheat between the two in SD alone, and he hasn't beat me yet....trust me, we have had many opportunities to try, LOL. It does really have us stumped as to how it can not finish ahead. Must say the auger boot with the power motor is slick, works super well as a grain catcher when turned off full (lord knows how terrible he last 3 designs have been....), and the grain shoots out in a tight controlled flow that is really nice. However after the initial playing around with the motor to adjust the spout you still some howe seem to just move the combine forward or backwards to fill a truck LOL. Is nice to fill a big cart and direct flow. But must say, in rough ground and tall carts kinda concerned the adjuster could hit the cart...had that happen on the folding part of of our Deere auger...not pretty.
