Anyone running a TR 98 or 99 in 35 or 36ft canola swaths, if so how does it handle them. Just thinking about adding a older combine to help out but not sure if it could handle that size swath in 3000lb canola or 60bu wheat.
Have two tr98 and a 36 foot swather. They handle it just fine. Can go anywhere between 3-6 mph depending on how nice the swath is. They are a really good combine in my opinion and now they are cheap to buy. We got a cr this year and just kept both of our tr's because they are worth more as a spare than to sell them.
we picked up 36ft swaths with a jd 9500 in good yielding canola once when our swather broke down its slow going and piles can be sketchy but it handled it surprisingly well and a tr 98 is atleast half as big again as a jd 9500
We picked up 50 ft wheat swaths with our 98 it was about a 40 bu crop of late seeded wheat. It handled it fine sure didn't take long to get across the field. The choppers on those combines are the only concern only spread not quite 30' in perfect conditions. They are dam good combines we ran up just about 4000 sep hrs with very little down time.
