Hi Guys

We have just finished our harvest with an AF 9120, just clocked up over 400 engine hours, and about 300 mill hrs. It was a long and drawn out harvest season.

Machine goes well, a bit underpowered, especially when dealing with high moisture grain. Had a number of small teething problem with machine, but they are all sorted now.

Any questions feel free to ask.

that's probably about right. The yields are so low down under that they can harvest at speeds we'd never think of.

Probably in Aussie but not here. as mentioned above speed about 8-10 km/hr. Average yield in Barley was 8t/ha or about 3.2t/ac.

You normally do not see green hills like that in the middle of summer in Aussie, or many hills at all.

sorry about that, combineguy. In my mind I tend to lump Australia and New Zealand together, which I realize isn't accurate.

Combineguy, isn't that 30' head a bit small for a class 9 machine? or is it that your crops are that good that you can't go with a bigger head?

I am not familiar with tonnes/hectar or km/hr. could you please inform me on this as i am in NA

No not at all. 30ft front kept the engine load up about 95-120% of engine load according to the AFS600.

I hope i'm right
8 tonnes to the hectare equals 15 bushels per acre

Hectare=2.47 acres, test weight of barley is 48 per bu. 8(tones)*2000*1.1 is 17,600/2.47/48=
148 bu to the acre.


And now I am done with math for the foreseeable future.
