Maxi, I see you posted some photos earlier of a 9120 rice machine. Have you seen it run in rice? If so, how is it doing? Thanks.

Re: Question for Maxi...How's the 9120 doing in Ri

Hi

They have the tracks on it and the 8010.
So far they have been in beans but should go into rice soon.
will try to get by there and check them out.
right now we are way to wet to work in the fields at all

Talked with the field manager and he said the machines are working good no problems with the 8010 and very little with the 9120.

The Lexxons ,and JD's are running in the same fields in the beans but hadn't moved to the new fields as of the time I was there.

The JD's had a problem in the rice the dealership put flotation tires on instead of tracks and had to pick the fields they worked in.
They just couldn't go.

After 22" of rain in 48 hours with Gustov and some more with Ike things have gotten bad.

Looks like most of our local cotton is going to be shredded this year.
Makes for a short harvest season at our dealership.One of our locals did take delivery of two of the module pickers today.
Should get the other three over the next couple of days.

What was the capacity difference between the 9120 and the 8010? Around here the 8010's are running 30ft drapers, and in good rice, they are getting approx 2000-2400bu/hr depending on conditions. Thanks

Hi

We didn't have very much time to talk .Was in transit from one job to another.
Asked how they were doing and snapped a few pics and was on my way.
They have run both machines in spring harvest and now.

this machine looks like the one that was in Eunice back in July cutting with two 8010 couldn't really get feel for capacity as the fact. tecks where always hooking a computer up to it, never got to cut for any lenth of time, plus they only sent it with a 25ft drapper, but they did let him choke it said he was going 3.8mph in heavy green down rice,an then he let them have it back!!
