The case had a 128(if my memory is correct) blade drum inside the combine and then an external spreader that didn't look like the CRs. I haven't seen the necr spreader yet but I've never seen anything in the same league. Made a joke of our lexions. The straw exiting was very even so maybe they have the feeding thing figured out. On the down side we tried to drop straw with it and we couldn't even find the row afterwards and I'm not exagerating.
The point is that NH offers a fully cab-adjustable spreader set up that gives you the possibility to react to changing conditions throughout the day from the seat of your cab,such as side winds,tough material etc.Thats exactly what i missed on the powercast tailboard on our 9870STS,where you can only adjust the rpm...Well done NH!
You have to go to the last 1/2 of the animation to see it and get Christian to translate some words. But since it is two concentrated streams of material (and air blast) it should spread farther to the edges as well as be less affected by wind. And it appears to be quite adjustable as well.
2 years ago we had a combine out from NH that had this chopper/spreader on it. Had it all fall, combined all your normal crops in SK and it worked very well. The buttons and what not are not as easy to get used to as it shows in the video but once you are on to them it is a very nice feature. Ran it beside 4 MAV choppers all fall. The only thing that I would change is more RPM (programing). I think they will when or if it becomes available in NA. It is designed in Europe where headers are smaller...the max spread was 35' but very even and the cut was great.
Gut gemacht Christian
The only thing i would translate different is
gleichmaessige Verteilung durch Kennfeld gesteuerte Leitbleche,which means even distribution through automatically,computer-adjusted vanes.
The amount of spread on the case is adjustable from the cab as well. Side to side wasn't but that doesn't matter. We had that on our old cx's and it is the most useless option I've ever had. The next lexions will have a different chopper than this one.
We were given the option of putting the euro chopper on our new 590 to sort of try it out. I thought the dollars they wanted to 'try it out' was a little steep so we kept with the simple, but trouble-free MAV. I suspect claas will soon be offering the euro chopper here in NA.
hmm... the real redekops must have a lot better chopper than our lexions, which have redekop internals, because they are a terrible chopper. Sure our lexions can spread 45' on a calm day but they don't chop &@it especially at night. I'm not knocking the NH I heard it had a kick a** chopper I just wanted to say the European chopper on the case in my opinion was fantastic as well. We tried to get the 9090 to demo against our 590's but no go. They took it to a neighbors 580 instead.
