Took some pictures of a local 8010 combining beans. Wasn't going all that fast for a 375hp combine.

Take care,

what I would like to know is why a farmer who has an AFX8010 is running such a little truck? either they are hauling 1/2 a mile to the elevator/bin or they have a bunch of those little trucks, which I'm not sure. I would think a combine that could cover 20 acres an hour or more in even 30 bushel beans that would be 600+ bushes of beans and I know that little truck wouldn't hold that but I guess that's why there's a grain cart.

They don't even need this combine. They run around 1000ac so their old 2388 did just fine. They just have alot of money. In wheat they would fill that truck, shut off the combine and take the truck home to dump and then back to the field. They do have a pretty nice semi but they use that for corn mainly.

Take care,

I don't know these guys personally. I hear at 30ft an Air Reel up front isn't all that great. This system is better at 30ft+.

Take care,
