Hi OZ8120

I cannot help with the durum setting for a 8120 but have a 2388 and find durum very hard to thresh. We tried to get the samlpe as best as we could but still looked terrible. When we delivered it the bloke on the sample stand said it was the best sample he had seen for that year. So we let the sample get a little worse to keep the capacity. It was going around 6t/hairrigated in 2006. From memory we were getting 35ton/hour. Haven't had any irrigation water to grow durum since.

Jimmy

P.S. how do you like the 8120 and what size front/header are you using.

I have never harvested durum but if its so hard to thresh why would you have your cancaves at "6" ?? I would try closing the cancaves.. Just an idea.

Hey oz, that sounds like pretty impressive capacity. When you say 80 tonnes/hr in bread wheat, would that be hard red spring or would that be a winter wheat. At that capacity are you limited by power?

hi larry, it would be winter wheat as for power it is limited by power sometimes other wise it is my speed that limits me, it will only do 15.5km/h in 3rd gear.
