Ahhh. A 7720, a very wise Harvester. Hard as Nails to.

As for that pick were you are unloading into that auger. It looks a little bit choked.

Hey, there. Nice pics! Quite a few years ago, my grandfather sewed s small patch of oats. MAN, did it make a lot of oats! We just about filled a rail road car up with oats! Oats are great feed, but man, I had no clue that so few acres would produce such a bounty.

What kind of production did you experience in the [above] pictured field? Was it a 'normal' year, or 'bad', or 'good'?

It's not chocked....we just dont't have a funnel for it so what doesn't slide into the auger runs off to the side. It's only a 5" one. We were loading a bin of oat seed for planting next year.

Thanks. We sowed the oats for grazing but the animals didn't need it so we harvested. First time in decades we ever planted it and harvested it. I think it averaged around 60 bu/ac...not bad but not great. I guess I would call it a great year for just being able to get in there and cut since it rained on an off for 3 straight months. Your'e right that oats for great for feeding and grazing...better than wheat.

Sneeky picture there, Shame. I am referring to your white Chevy picture. If one looks real close, up in the left corner by the tree, is a round-back 95 or 105.

Quote:Very nice pictures Shane. How's the ol' 7720 doin'? Looks like it's still running strong like it's brothers.

Thanks! The 7720 is one of the most reliable peices of machinery of our farm. I can't brag on it enough because of how well it ran this summer after not even using last summer. If we ever decide to upgrade, I hope we keep it around.
