Anybody got any opinions on what these walker type machines are like in corn. Mainly cutting summer cereals where straw quality is important but need to be able to do a good job harvesting some corn aswell.

You won't get the tonnes per hr of the rotaries in corn, but they will both do a good job. The big CX would have a productivity advantage over the JD in your small grains.

Yeah a bit of a brain fade there sorry, I have a 7120 and been on the case forum so much... just posted there on autopilot.

Have been thinking about walker type machines lately because straw is becoming more of an issue. Was talking with some people yesterday who run a CX and a CR and have been very pleased with both but especially the throughput and straw from the CR. They reckon they don't ever need to run cover plates under the front concave on any wheat in there area also.

Can anyone tell me why the twin rotor design can be so much different (better?!) than a single rotor. (Not wanting to start a colour war... been reasonably happy with 7120 but not ruling out changing in near future due to straw...)
