Re: 9510 capacity

I can't help you on the corn question, but can give you our experience with a 9410 and 922R in wheat. In east central Kansas on dryland, we don't cut much 75 bushel wheat, but do cut some 60-65 and a lot of 40-50. We cut to get the heads and not run all the straw through and have HRW.

In nice clean dry 60+ wheat we can run 3.9-4.3 mph pretty steady. We don't have a grain cart so stop to unload every bin. We can average 7-9 acres per hour and on normal 10-12 hour days cut 70-90 acres. We usually have 700 +/- acres of wheat and our rule of thumb out there is to get it cut in no more than 10 days, with weather not always cooperating. A 9510 should beat that because of more walker capacity, but we seem to cut pretty much acre for acre with our neighbors who run 9500/9510s. They are running 924 or 925s. We did get a flex head last fall and got a 925, we could not keep it full cutting beans with a 922R.

Hope that helps and feel free to ask questions.

Re: 9510 capacity

You should have no problem with 1000 acres of corn, as with everything you need to stay at it hard. A good day will be 75-80 acres so in 2 weeks you are done assuming no break downs. I generally run 5.5 mph one thing to keep in mind is the clean grain elavator is not as large on the 9500 and 9510 as the 9550 don't over tax it with 200 bpa. At 200 bpa you might be limited on your dryer capacity I don't know your op. Assuming wet holding capacity is large enough a dryer needs you kick out 670bph running 24 hrs per day to stay even. I hope this helps.

Re: 9510 capacity

Nobody mentioned this, but I noticed your handle is "hillsidefarms". If you are trying to shove 1500 bph through that machine on a steep slope you will throw corn over the sieves unless you are using a Sidehill machine. I have a 9500sh and up to about 20% slopes there is no slowing down in 225bu corn with a 6-30" head.
6-36 is going to be more but I am nowhere near the top capacity with mine at 5 mph. I can fill my tank extension full on a steep slope every time too.

Re: 9510 capacity

it all depends on if you have made any modifications to it , like pull every other wire out of concave or pull filler plates to get a little more speed
