Well here in Oregon, a very large grower got in 6 last year, he ran them and claims they do a superb job compared to the sts's which he had 3 of the previous year. (Not sure why he did a 3 for 6 trade... maybe the 12 9610's he's already got
)

In grass seed the JD sts has hardly been proven, Deere doesnt know grass seed exists as a crop thus no research has been done to make them work, a couple guys think they got the sts thing down but they are far and few between, so the wts was welcome around my neck of the woods.

Two of my customers bought WTSs this past season and they too do a lot of grasses. One of them had an '03 9760 previously. I installed a Bullet rotor in it and it still did not perform they way he thought it should. When the WTS became available he immediately bought one and is quite happy with it. I should say that he harvests in tougher conditions and crops than normal. Altogether I know of three farmers running WTSs in this area and I'll be watching them closely this next season.

Just a few questions- I noticed the '06 WTS has an 8.1L HPCR engine. Will they have the 9.0L for '07?
Would the WTS concave and cylinder fit in a 9600/10/50? The reason I ask is that I like the aggressive profile of the WTS rasp bar.

Southeastern Manitoba, Canada.

I think I misunderstood you. Are you affiliated with Deere or just from the same city as the WTS factory?

In grass seed both WTS and CTS can do a very good job. We have the fan speed reduction pulley installed so we can easily switch from wheat to grass.

Jaydee, can we expect new developments from Zweibrucken ?

Yes.For the 2008 season,Deere will introduce the TTS combine,which is basically a WTS with an additional separator drum with concave,and they will offer the 9880i STS with the hillmaster levelling axle.

No, the returns went back in infront of the rotor on the Bi- rotor.



The photo shows the return hose removed from the tube.

I used to live just an hour away from the home of Mark Underwood the inventor of the Bi-rotor. So I visited with him once or twice. Both of his birotors are probably still sitting next to his shop. Another friend from Germany went by it later and took some more photos.
There are some more photos on my old website at www.naegeleinc.com then click on birotor. I hope the site is still running. I also have a DVD from the old little video. It was done by Legleiter out of Arkansas City, KS. I got it from them.
