WE just got started yesterday with corn shelling

Finally our dealer dropped of the new 06 2388 yesterday as well.

(handy)


So far no problems..

We did get a bubble up auger in the hopper tank and i think it needs set up where its leaning fwd just a inch or 2 but i like how it works

This combine act's like its got some more get up and go....

I also like how i can engage the rotor at a idle..

I miss the notch's in the throttle.

I also get really tired of the GPS Beeping at me cause case IH will not keep power to the receiver all the time.

10 freaking min of ding ...ding...ding....


Heck even if i took that deal of and mounted it on a 4 wheeler id have to wait 30 min just to make sure it worked!!!!!

imagine if you had to guess on the settings

Besides the power and get up and go not alot different....The AC controls are (seems to work great by the way) the automatic part


So who else has started corn and how are things going????

Have a good and safe Harvest

Just a old 8 row 1083

But she works well......


I had a leak comeing from the control box for the mauer bubble up auger

Comeing out of the box they have a cast iron elbow going to the hose

(CHEAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

So im not impressed with that but i guess thats cutting some corners and saving them some money


I think that auger will be a good deal

Moisture is around 21-24 ish

how about you guys?

Here in the central part of eastern Iowa, we are probably 2 weeks away from seeing corn come out, and maybe 3 weeks on our soybeans.

Central Iowa here too, but we have some early corn that we will go get in the next week or so. We like to plant an early number first to get the hogs on fresh corn. Hand tested some a couple days ago at 28%. We also have some mid group 2 soybeans that were planted around the 4th of May that hardly have a leaf on em. Won't be long and still have a long list of things i want to get done. Doh!!! happens every fall!

Here in South Central Wisconsin a lot of guys are still chopping corn for silage so it will be a while before anybody goes into corn. The beans are starting to turn its also been cool around here so nothing is drying down real fast.

allot of guys here have started. So far we are seeing very poor yields. We have not cut very many acres just some to get the cattle out on the Stalks.

the stuff we have been cutting so far it isn't very good dirt. It hasn't made 100 Bushel. Parts of the Field the Stalks are still green and there is no ears on it. when you got a 12 row and theres pretty much nothing coming in the tank its pretty bad. This is a Midwest Number we have planted witch we now know is very bad.

Another guy had Pioneer planted on some pretty heavy Black dirt on some good ground. it only made 100 Bushel. but he did have it planted 35,000 planters per acre witch is pretty darn thick for a Drought year.

We have around a 100 acres of navies out. One full forty and the remaining on the tops of hills........... Tipical SNAFU. Sure would be nice if they'd all turn at the same time.

0.8 maturity beans here are close to going, wouldn't be surprised to see some combines rollin by this weekend.


Corn.......Ha, hasn't entered the head here yet. Local elevators are full..........again!

Hope all goes well with you guys AND your machines!

Be Safe!

We're probably less then 2 weeks from corn here, hand shelled some 92 day corn yesterday at 31%. We'll wait until its under 22% atleast, with the predicted heat this weekend it may be sooner. Beans have really began to turn, still atleast 2-3 away though. The waiting game begins...

So has anyone else started or how is your year going???

weve done around 300 acres and most of the corn is around 21% Moisture

Im shelling about 1600 bushel and hour and so far no issues with the new combine or the 04

I do like the hopper auger extension (whatever you call it)

from mauer..

I would like to see the moisture kinda drop a point or act like it might do it soon

So far its holding strong and there are chances for rain next week

Take care everyone and have a good season

Personally we haven't started yet since our beans were hit by hail June 23.They came back nicely
but the maturity has been set back by a week and a half to two weeks.Others may start in a week.Heard of some beans (group .8 maturity) taken out by Hanley Falls Mn. that yielded 55 bpa across the scale.Given the dry summer we had that's encouraging.
On corn it'll be awhile since it's barely mature and no one wants to pay for LP.
On gas and diesel prices they've come down some but what could we expect in an election year?
Had a neighbor who did sunflowers.He had a 2188 & a 2388 each with 16 row 22" sunflowerheads.Also had 2 Timpte 42'x78" hopper trailers and a 7220 Magnum w/E-Z Flow grain cart working in the field.Impressive to watch.
I hope to see a MacDon flexdraper demo on Monday at a corn and soybean growers plot.Should be fun to watch.
You all have a safe and prosperous harvest.

Well said, B575. Our combines are still the core of the whole harvest issue and things MUST go as well for them as for ourselves. Safety is also at the forefront of the of the harvest as well.


Farmboy, I'm just delighted to hear such great news concerning your new 8010!
I'm also looking forward to a few pics of her.
