I saw a brochure for the cornhead last week that claimed they were cost competitive. Did you choose the head because it was folding, other reasons, or a mixture?
I guess I'm really curious how close the price was to a 2412? We ordered a 3412 because the dealer pressured us on availability. It was only 800 bucks more than a new 2412 so I'm not really upset...just curious.
For those curious on the 3412 you know as much as me now. 800 bucks more...
No fluid or weight.It is a little light on the rear but we get along with it fine just make sure your in 2wd going down steep hills or backing up hill.It is about the same as our 2388 with a 2206 with no weaght.We have one set of round bars thinking about another for next year. The gerringhoff head was the only 12row fold available in the US.I had to have fold so I didn't have much to compare to but I think it was pretty close to the price of a 2412. Wasn't too happy with the 2206 before and don't like lawn mower blades.So far happy with the head.
Nice pictures Max88.
Radiator and air filter service should be at a minimum in that green corn
I can't get over the lack of material coming out the back compared to what goes in the front!
How much does that green corn slow production?
What is the moisture of the green corn and what's considered dry?
What dusty crop is the draper header doing?
Do you have spiked rasp bars on the rear of rotor or do you have 8 straight bars like the 2588?
Is that a 24 ft. unloading auger?
Does the grain tank really hold 315 bushels and is that big enough for the 12 row head.
Pump fixed the power problem.Field tracker is Headsight.Didn't get auto-steer ready because of our small fields.
The 7010 is by far better in all conditions for clean radiator.The 04 2388 was a joke trying to keep it clean.High moisture was around 32%.Slows down capacity but not too bad.Most dry corn around here is 17-22%.The dusty picture is soybeans that were running 10%.
We have spiked bars on the rotor.Not sure if your on to something with the straight bars or not but I would like to improve rotor loss a little to gain more capacity in damp condition.I'm not sure on the length of the auger without looking it up.Grain tank holds close to 320 bushels. In 200 bushel corn keep the grain cart close.Not too many long fields around here so we don't have any problems with this set up.
