Hey everybody! Im glad you liked it, took a bit of effort to get it like that


Yes the crop look thin in spots, but i put it in there because i was trying to show what it is like down here. Australia is so diverse in Agriculture. That very poor barly crop in the video, is only 850 km from were i am now, harvesting 7-8 tons to the hectare. So its intresting like that.

We havent really gotten any trouble at all from the cops. Maybe it is legal, i dunno. Dont care either. The Combine just handles so much better on the road with the car in the front, than without it. And its absolutely a wonderfull way of being mobile around all the small jobs i am doing at the moment. You got everything you need in that outfit.

The belt pickup shot! I actually just duct taped my camera to some frame work next to the belt, and just drove a bit more carefully
A bit of a gamble, but worth it.

(un)fortunatly we had heaps of rain in this end a few days ago, so right now we are trying to celebrate christmas together as a crew. Good fun doing it the aussie way defintly diffrent when you are used to danish conditions


Anyway. Merry christmas everyone

I like The idea moving the pickup around.
I would like to make something similar for shifting the ute, here in Denmark.
Would you be able to get some close-ups of the frame for the ute?
TIA Mikael

If you want to come out to Australia Again, I'd recommend Running with John Brennan's Contract Harvesting Company, they run Case's, Mainly 2388's and the like. As far as I know there a good crew, Well worth looking into.
