For the most part a lot of harvest is finished but for some in my very localized area ( Rolly View area) there’s a few to finish up yet. A few including me have a fair bit to go yet. We just got started in canola here as it was just to raw and green to harvest any sooner. Lots of swathing here took place last week of sept and first week Oct. Taking some off today at 14.5 straitcut and others thanking off swathes at the same 14.5 moisture. This is the first year I have ever seen our lexion really labour and grind through the canola. We are about 2/3 done with about 800 acres to go yet but it’s looking like we may have another year where we harvest some in the spring. Never know maybe the weather will change in the outlook forecast.Did your area finish up Brian?
I think grease is something that some farms aren't familiar with, might explain a few of the problems. Honeybee also wants a specific grease used on the knife heads too. I greased mine daily and often in middle of the day if I was waiting on the cart or something like that. I also think that bearing on the eccentric drive should be replaced annually as a preventative measure, cheap to do but expensive if it ever failed. Same could probably be said for the needle bearings in the knife head too.Ran 50' Airflex last year. About 200hrs. Only thing it needed was grease. Only used it in cereals though. Dont grow pulses.
