Quote:It is for the Harvest Smart Feedrate control if im correct. Speeds up and slows down the combine ground speed depending on how much material is going through it.


Thanks mocutter. I thought It meant Increased loss. I hope harvest smart works better in Europe.

Quote:Is that as fast as that thing can go? looks like the drivers trying to thresh with the reel rather than the rotor.

Kinda what I was thinking!


Keep in mind that this wheat is properbly yielding 180-200 bushels/acre

I still don't get the point on beating it with the reel like they were. The reel should be traveling the same speed maybe just a little faster than the combine.

Is the crop wheat, or tritacale? The tritacale that I harvested one time was much harder to thresh than wheat. Maybe he was "pre-threshing" it with the reel?


I guess pics can be very deceiving; the crop does not look like 200 bpa. The stubble, after the crop has been cut does not look like 200 bu stubble, either. Like I say, hard to tell from the pic.

Jeeez man. Slow the reel down or increase the forward speed. Theres 2 things happening there. The reel is shattering grain from being to low and fast and b, the feed cannot be even into the machine thus, lowering treshing capacity. If you cannot feed it without the rel that fast, bring your auger forward a tad.
I've cut heavy crops on Europe and that looked like a well ripened 3-4 ton crop what had some rain on it. That stuff should come off real fast.

wow, tha has to be some of the worst straw spreading i have ever seen, can you imagine direct seeding into that, major hairpining and pluging...

i new the 50 and 60 series were having major problems with spreading, but i was told it was corrected!!

I would assume that it was being windrowed for baling into straw. There is nothing coming from the chopper.
