I'm always in the mood, nebraskaharvester.
Thanks for the impressive shots.
Why the small 8 row heads in nice big fields?
That kinda looks like the King Ranch in TX.
Where's za cuttin?

Thanks for the answer, nebraska harvester.
I don't mean to be awkward, but why could 12 row heads not be used on 16 row planted corn? With a marker on the planter, aren't the rows all of equal width?
Final question if you don't mind:
What town is that close to in NW KS where you shot those corn harvesting pictures?

Sure, as long as the planting made sure the guess row was 30" wide from end to end. It isn't always that way, though auto steer is helping that. There is also the issue of transporting the heads, keeping up with them with the cart, etc, etc.

12 row heads could be used with a 16 row planter, but it can get really tricky. Most of the time the spacing between the guess rows is pretty close to 30", but if you start to get on hilly ground the planter will want to drift, widening the spacing. The really bad spot is on turns. It really makes for a long day when the combine operator is constantly trying to keep the machine positioned so that the rows are being fed into the machine without pushing them too much to one side.

Excellent pics nebraskaharvester. It looks like the combines are 9760/50's? Are the machines with the bigger hopper extensions 9860's ?

Very Great pictures. Perfect timing for you to post those pictures on a day in Indiana when it's snowing! My favorite of all the pictures are the overhead views and the ones with all the equipment are all lined up, like in pic 4. Hope you don't mind if i use one of these as a wallpaper for my phone do ya?

Love the aerial pics,

Picking corn in big flat fields sure is fun unless you are the cart operator. Do you have any pictures of the pit. That has to be a pretty assume set up to keep up with 6 machines.
